Doctors Express of Edgewater is proud to sponsor their First Annual Holiday Food Drive in partnership with Food Link, Inc. of Annapolis.  The Food Drive is designed to help alleviate hunger in the local community by collecting non-perishable food items for distribution through Food Link’s programs.

Items most needed include:  hearty soups, beef stew, canned tuna & chicken, Parmalat milk, macaroni & cheese, peanut butter & jelly, and grocery gift cards.  All non-perishable food item donation will be collected at Doctors Express seven(7) days a week from 8am-8pm Monday-Friday and 8am-6pm Saturday/Sunday.  The center is located at 3059 Solomons Island Rd., Suite F-2 in the South River Crossing Shopping Center.

Since 1991 Food Link has donated goods and services to more than 100 recipient groups and charitable organizations in the county, including its emergency food pantry and emergency baby-supply pantry. 45% of those served are working individuals and families, 34% are children and 20% are seniors.

Doctors Express of Edgewater opened in January 2012 and provides urgent care services for non-emergency illness and injury, with no appointment necessary.  Since opening  the Center has worked on a variety of community projects, such as the Mt Zion UMC Cystic Fibrosis Bike-A-Thon and the Edgewater Fitness/Toys for Tots Reindeer Run.

Doctors Express is part of a network of  centers that not only provides urgent care services but also have on-site x-ray and lab services, as well as a physician always on site.  Additional services include occupational health , travel medicine, sports, pre-employment, DOT and pre-operative physicals, and vaccinations.  All services are available with no appointment necessary.
