Staff members of University of Maryland Shore Regional Health are giving high praise to Facilities Management crews for their hard work and tireless effort clearing snow and ice at all of our facilities as Winter Storm Pax hit Wednesday night into Thursday. Mark Kutz, UM Shore Medical Center at Chestertown’s director of construction, planning and maintenance, said his team set out at 3 a.m. to make sure the parking lots and access areas were clear by morning. Team members at UM Shore Medical Centers at Dorchester, Easton and other Shore Regional Health locations have also been on hand to manage the elements in those areas.
The crews are already bracing for the next round as more snow is predicted Thursday night into Friday morning, and of course Facilities Management will continue dealing with any weather-related maintenance concerns as the UM SRH team continues providing care to our communities.
Thank you to all of our Facilities Management team members for leaving the warmth of your homes to brave the elements, ensuring the safety of Shore Regional Health staff members, patients and visitors.
