AGH to Provide Family Medicine at WCHD

Berlin, Md. Beginning August 18, 2015, Atlantic General Health System will once again provide family medicine care in the Snow Hill community. Family Nurse Practitioner Michelle Farlow will hold office hours two days a week at the Worcester County Health Department (WCHD) in Snow Hill.

Farlow, who has 16 years of nursing experience, earned a Master of Science in Nursing from Wilmington University before securing her post-master’s certificate in family nurse practitioner studies. She is an experienced nurse educator, having taught nursing students in both clinical and classroom settings, and served as a public health clinician for more than five years. Farlow has been providing family medicine care to patients of Atlantic General Health System for more than three years.

“Offering primary care at the WCHD has been a goal for Atlantic General Health System since Dr. Lei Gong moved to Ocean Pines in December. We wanted to maintain a presence in the Snow Hill area to serve those patients that do not have the ability to travel to see a provider,” said Jim Brannon, vice president of professional services at Atlantic General Hospital. “We are grateful for our partnership with the health department, which has allowed this to happen.”

Farlow is accepting appointments for new patients in Snow Hill on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Appointments can be made by calling 443-728-1030. She will continue providing walk-in care at the Atlantic Health Center in Berlin Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
