TidalHealth is committed to meeting its mission “to improve the health of the communities we serve” by connecting our community to the resources and support they need through our Community Wellness team.
Our team of nurses, social workers and community health workers provide medical and non-medical support to make sure you are getting the care and support you need to live an active, healthy life. Our community health workers help people with chronic health problems connect to community resources.

Wagner Wellness Van
The Wagner Wellness Van is a mobile medical unit that provides community-based health screenings. Services may include blood pressure, diabetes assessment, referrals and links to primary care, cancer screenings, seasonal flu shots and more. The van visits underserved communities throughout the Lower Eastern Shore as well as community events.
The TidalHealth Foundation raised the funds to purchase this mobile health van in honor of a long-time team member and friend of TidalHealth and the Delmarva community, Debra Wagner. The Wagner Wellness Van is a tribute to Debbie’s 32-year career at TidalHealth Peninsula Regional and her “can-do” spirit which was instrumental in the development of many valuable outreach services.
