CoreLife Delmarva, in partnership with the Peninsula Regional Health System (PRHS), held a ribbon cutting and open house on Monday, October 1 for their new Salisbury location.
The joint venture recently opened that office, its first Delmarva location, at 1496 Still Meadow Boulevard. It will be the first of several planned openings in the region. The open house and ribbon cutting celebrated the Salisbury collaboration and the program's initial success.
Delmarva's Lower Eastern Shore has much higher rates of obesity compared to the rest of the state. Somerset County's 40 percent obesity rate is the highest in Maryland, with Dorchester at 36 percent, Wicomico at 34 percent and Worcester at 31 percent.
That hasn't escaped the attention of PRHS, which recently collaborated with CoreLife Delmarva to provide weight loss services in a structured, supportive environment to help people take control of their health and manage their weight and nutrition.
"This is an incredibly important partnership," said Dr. Kathryn Fiddler, MS, RN, NE-BC, Vice President of Population Health at Peninsula Regional Medical Center. "We need to increase access to obesity treatment, help people reduce risk factors for chronic diseases, enhance outcomes, and improve overall health."
CoreLife offers patients a 24-hour, 7-day-a-week fitness studio, nutrition counseling/meal planning, and medical management by experienced providers. Its comprehensive approach has led to many success stories with life-changing results.
"CoreLife is committed to improving and sustaining the health of the community," said Sean Kostkowski, CoreLife President. "This new partnership with PRHS benefits the people of the Delmarva Peninsula."
An additional location in Easton just opened and will hold its ribbon cutting and open house on Monday, October 15 at 4:00 p.m. CoreLife Delmarva recently finalized plans to open a location at the Delmarva Health Pavilion in Millsboro, DE. A second Salisbury location, due to the success of the first, and a studio in Berlin are also planned. Each of those new locations will be operational by the end of this year.
