Bayhealth Medical Center is central and southern Delaware's largest healthcare system with two hospitals, one free-standing ED and a medical staff of nearly 500 physicians.  

Bayhealth Medical Center is a fully integrated health care system consisting of two hospitals (Kent Campus and Sussex Campus), a free-standing ED in Smyrna and numerous ambulatory and outpatient offices.  Both hospitals are certified Primary Stroke Centers.  There is 24/7 Hospitalist coverage at both hospitals, as well as Intensivists in the ICU’s.  Service are available in most specialties including Neurosurgery, Cardiac surgery, Interventional and Structural Cardiology.  Kent has a Cardiac ICU, a Neuro ICU and a Medical ICU; Sussex has a Medical ICU. 

Delaware is consistently rated as one of the lowest cost of living states in which to either raise a family or retire.  Located less than two hours from Washington DC, Baltimore and Philadelphia the central/southern Delaware area offers affordable living, history and charm.  Easy access to both the Delaware and Chesapeake Bays provides limitless recreational opportunities and the Atlantic Ocean is less than a forty-five minute drive from Dover.
