McCready Foundation Building a Healthy Community One Person at a Time


The McCready health-care campus in Crisfield is located on Cork Point with a picturesque view of the Chesapeake Bay. It is accessible by land, air and water. The facility has a dock adjacent to its Emergency Department entrance so residents of neighboring Smith and Tangier islands can reach us by boat.

Crisfield is a quaint waterfront town in Somerset County on Maryland's Eastern Shore. It is a hub of water commerce and a popular tourist destination with several restaurants, gift shops and water related activities. Visitors can find a museum and heritage foundation named in honor of the city's most enduring civic legend, the late Gov. J. Millard Tawes.

Nationally prominent figures called Crisfield home: Harry Clifton "Curley" Byrd, a president of the University of Maryland during the mid-20th century and considered the land-grant institution's "modern-day" father; and the late Steve and Lem Ward, hunting decoy carvers whose skills elevated the craft into a distinctive form of American folk art.

Downtown Crisfield - 2009 Somers Cove, a deepwater marina and charter fishing port, is the popular backdrop to such annual festivals as the J. Millard Tawes Crab & Clam Bake and the National Hard Crab Derby, an annual Labor Day weekend event started in 1947.

Daugherty's Creek Canal, originating at the Little Annemessex River near the City Dock, leads boaters past McCready hospital and to fishing, camping and water sports at neighboring Janes Island State Park.

Crisfield and McCready are a short drive from two public universities, historic Princess Anne and Pocomoke City, several small airports, and the region's metropolitan center - Salisbury.

Oceanside attractions - a little over an hour away by car - include Maryland's popular family resort, Ocean City, as well as the serene beaches of Assateague Island.

Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York are less than a day's drive.

More information about the Crisfield area is available at the Crisfield Area Chamber of Commerce. To learn more about tourist destinations and activities across Somerset County, check out Visit Somerset.
