We Are Here For You
It’s important for us to listen to our patients and families. Your feedback makes us better.
A patient advocate is available to assist patients and families with questions and concerns before, during, and after receiving care at any of our facilities. If you’re staying in the hospital and have a question or concern, please speak immediately to the clinical leader or supervisor for that area, if the immediate team assisting you isn’t able to resolve it.
After discharge, you can contact our patient advocates:
You may receive a survey by phone or email after your stay or visit. We encourage you to respond. Positive feedback helps us know what we’re doing well, and if you have a concern, we can work to improve.
Please see our Patient Rights and Responsibilities page to learn more.

We Are Quality
Patients and families know quality care when they experience it.
We define quality of care not just by standards of safety, effectiveness and equitability, but also by serving with kindness and grace. We’re a benchmark system, setting the standard across the continuum, and we have a legacy of firsts and proven accomplishments.
Legacy of Firsts
On Delmarva, TidalHealth was the first to offer cancer services, the first to perform open heart surgery, the first to offer minimally invasive neurosurgery and the first to perform robotic surgery.
We also developed Maryland’s largest and most comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation program and opened Maryland’s first ALS treatment center.
New technologies and advanced disease detection and treatment options continue to define the standard for safer care, faster recoveries and better outcomes.
Whether you need a specialist or a primary care provider who will help you on your health journey, trust the TidalHealth team to give you the best care, close to home.
TidalHealth providers are highly trained clinicians who believe in putting their skills and talent into personalized care for their friends and neighbors. They consistently strive for excellence through board certification, participation in clinical trials and research, and ongoing education to stay current with the latest evidence-based practices.
