SALISBURY — CoreLife Delmarva, in partnership with the Peninsula Regional Health System (PRHS), announced they have opened the new Salisbury location.

The joint venture recently opened its first Delmarva location at 1496 Still Meadow Boulevard, the first of several planned openings in the region, and quickly filled its patient roster. At an open house and ribbon cutting on Ot. 1 CoreLife Salisbury staff was present to answer questions about the program, schedule free consultations, give tours of the office and gym, and raffle off door prizes for lucky attendees.

Delmarva’s Lower 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, dietary and nutrition counseling and meal planning, and medical management by experienced providers. Its comprehensive approach has led to many success stories.

An additional location in Easton just opened and will hold its ribbon cutting and open house on Oct. 15 at 4 p.m. CoreLife Delmarva recently finalized plans to open a location at the Delmarva Health Pavilion in Millsboro, Del. 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.
