Our patients can expect individualized standards of care. We combine the latest medical treatments with personalized attention.
Our staff is here to counsel you in making the right choices for your health and quality of life. Even more valuable than our excellent, award-winning programs? The genuine warmth and concern our staff exudes in caring for each and every patient on a personal level.
In addition to the acute care and specialty services we provide at our main campus in Berlin, MD, we have more than 20 family physicians, internists, and specialists with offices in 15 locations throughout the region that comprise Atlantic General Health System.
The Berlin Fire Company much like the community we serve, is a work in progress. We strive to serve the best that we can. As our lives get more and more busy, it is harder to find people in the community who are willing to sacrifice the time from their families to become part of the fire company. But, for those that do, the rewards and satisfaction you get is well worth it.
A carefully restored early nineteenth century house, located in Berlin’s National Register Historic District, the main block of the house has been furnished as a house museum and the west wing as a gallery displaying local memorabilia.
Berlin Little League became a charter member of Little League International in 1960. We are a non-profit organization serving over 400 children (ages 4-16) with youth baseball and softball programs. Berlin Little League is funded by registration fees and by the generous donations of local businesses each year. The construction of the new concession stand would not have been possible without the overwhelming support of the community. Thank you to every parent, player, volunteer, and donor who have contributed to making Berlin Little League what it is today.

…to Rackliffe House, a 1740s merchant-planter’s home overlooking Assateague Island and scenic Sinepuxent Bay. Rackliffe House was constructed in the 1740s by Captain Charles Rackliffe, the merchant-planter grandson of one of the earliest English immigrants to Maryland’s seaside. The large two-story, three-bay Manor House features Flemish bond brickwork with random glazed headers, a steeply pitched gabled roof with kicked eaves, and large windows. Captain Rackliffe intended the house to be seen across the water. He built it on a prominent ridge atop a man-made terrace with expansive views of the water and island.
In its time, Rackliffe House has witnessed marauding Spanish galleons, Barbary pirate ships, and English men-of-war. The house has stood through the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Civil War. Today, thanks to the restoration efforts of the Rackliffe House Trust and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, historic Rackliffe House now serves as a coastal museum that interprets 18th-century life along Maryland’s seaside.

SUMC Spirit Kitchen
In February 2011, a small group of members at our church heeded God’s call to provide a free food ministry in Berlin. As a result, the “Spirit Kitchen” at Stevenson United Methodist Church was born, and it has blossomed into a community ministry that continues to grow each week. The Spirit Kitchen ministry offers a free lunch on Wednesdays at our Church (located at 123 N. Main Street in Berlin) from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Each week, dedicated groups of volunteer’s shop, prepare, and serve meals to anyone who comes to our doors. On an average each week, the kitchen serves 80-100 meals and provides bags of groceries to 60-80 families. The Pantry offers “blessing bags” which include socks, T-shirt, and non refrigerated items.
The Church Mouse Thrift Shop located at 101 North Main Street in Berlin has been in existence for over 50 years in various locations.

The Church Mouse is staffed entirely by volunteers. The majority of our workers are members of our church but we are pleased to have several helpers from other churches. The local merchants in town have been very supportive of us. We are very active in town events and a member of our staff serves on the Board of Directors for the Berlin Chamber of Commerce.
We fund the majority of the Out Reach Mission for St Pauls Church. We donate to a variety of charities locally, nationally and worldwide. A few of our varied projects include Meals on Wheels, Habitat for Humanity, Believe in Tomorrow, and various charity WALK A THONS. We also on a continuing basis purchase food items for the Food Pantry run by the Berlin Baptist Church on William Street in Berlin.
We are always looking for donations of small household items, knick knacks, books, costume jewelry and in season gently used clean clothes. Please no furniture, bulky items, electric items or computer hardware. If donating a large amount of items or you have questions please contact coordinator Helen Wiley 410 208 2818. (firstname.lastname@example.org) Our shop is very small and it is difficult to receive and price large amounts of donations when we are open
If donating large amounts of items lease contact Helen Wiley (443) 513 6655. Our shop is small and we have a location near the store we prefer you use for larger donations. Please call for directions. We can always use jewelry, house hold and kitchen items, framed pictures, books (novels and cook books, no text or technical books). We can only take seasonal clothing, due to limited storage space. Please no furniture, electronics or other bulky items.
