Hurlock Mayor Joyce Spratt announced October 7, 2013 that Nanticoke Health Services signed a two-year lease with the Hurlock Medical Center to open physician offices at 302 Collins Street by the end of November. The announcement is welcome to town officials and residents have access to healthcare facilities and services conveniently located at the medical center.
According to Mayor Spratt, “This is huge for Hurlock because we have not had medical care available here since Choptank left in May.” She credited Nanticoke and Tom Brown, president of Nanticoke Physician’s Network, for their commitment to the community.
According to an October 7 article in The Banner, Nanticoke’s offices will be open five days a week. Effective November 17, Dr. John Appiott will serve as the on-site physician two days a week, and a nurse practitioner will staff the facility three days a week.
