Greater Baden Medical Services and the St. Mary’s County Health Department announced the launch of a primary health care clinic at the new St. Mary’s County Health Hub, located at 21625 Great Mills Road in Lexington Park.
Primary and preventive health care services will be available for community members 18 years of age and older at the St. Mary’s County Health Hub on Tuesdays from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Greater Baden Medical Services is a Federally Qualified Health Center that operates community-based health clinics. Greater Baden offers services on a sliding fee scale and also accepts private insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, and those who do not have health insurance.
“Greater Baden is excited to be part of the partnership with St. Mary’s County Health
Department and the new Health Hub at Lexington Park. In partnership, we can provide integrated care to those who have challenges with social and behavioral determinants of health, reducing barriers to much-needed care.” said Dr. Christopher DeMarco, Interim Chief Executive Officer at Greater Baden Medical Services.
“Establishing a new primary care clinic is an important step forward for health equity in this county,” said Dr. Meena Brewster, St. Mary’s County Health Officer. “The southern portion of the county in particular is a federally-designated Health Professional Shortage Area for primary care. We are grateful for this partnership with Greater Baden Medical Services to help with primary care access for St. Mary’s County families, including those who do not have health insurance. We look forward to expanding these primary care services in the future to include services for children and more operational days.”
