Calvert Family Practice Associates Announcement
Calvert Family Practice Associates is pleased to announce that as of June 29th, 2015, we became part of Calvert Physician Associates, the provider network of the Calvert Health System. Our new practice name is Calvert Primary Care - Prince Frederick.
This transition opens a new chapter for CFPA and marks the further development of Calvert Health System's commitment to a strong primary care base for residents of Calvert County.
Calvert families count on Calvert Memorial Hospital for outstanding medical care and now CFPA is an official part of the Calvert Health System family.
Patients of Calvert Family Practice Associates will see no change in our long time office staff or in access to their health care provider, who will continue to coordinate their medical care. The practice, which will remain at 110 Hospital Rd. Prince Frederick, will now be called "Calvert Primary Care - Prince Frederick".
Our highest priority is providing excellent care to our patients, and we expect to continue to do under our new name of Calvert Primary Care - Prince Frederick.

Welcome to Calvert Primary Care
At Calvert Primary Care, our entire focus is on caring for you and your family in a friendly, welcoming, compassionate environment.
Our medical staff consists of Board Certified Family Physicians and Certified Nurse Practitioners.
We welcome you as a patient, and appreciate the opportunity to become your Family Medical Home.
Family Physicians are specialists and qualified to care for the entire family. We treat patients of all ages -- from newborn babies to senior citizens. Instead of specializing in only one limited medical area, Family Physicians are highly trained in all major medical areas — pediatrics, internal medicine, gynecology, minor surgery, geriatrics, community medicine, and psychiatry. They know when to treat you, and when to bring in another specialist you can trust. Family Medicine proividers are uniquely qualified to treat the “whole person”, and successfully integrate all aspects of medicine in managing health care and treatment.
At Calvert Primary Care, we are interested in getting you healthy and keeping you healthy. Family physicians are specially trained in preventive medicine and know how your family's health history can affect your health. At Calvert Primary Care, we believe that preventing a health problem is better than having to overcome one. We can help you make the right health choices, to keep you and your family healthy.
All the staff in our office work as a team to provide you with quality medical care. We are proud of the training and abilities of each of our staff. We want you to have the confidence in them that we do, so we can all work together to meet your family’s medical needs.
