History of the Organization
Emergency Service Associates, P.A. was founded in 1968 by Dr. Robert Adkins and his colleagues to provide emergency medical care to the Delmarva Peninsula at then Peninsula General Hospital.
Since then Peninsula General has grown to become TidalHealth Peninsula Regional, opening cardiothoracic surgical services, a dedicated cancer treatment center at the Henson Cancer Center, Cardiac Catheterization services, and of course obtaining the prestigious designation of a trauma center in Marylands national and world-leading trauma systems. During that time PRMC has adopted technologies that were not in existence at the end of the 1960s such as CT scanning, MRI, ultrasound, PET scanning, robotic surgery and more.
And Emergency Services Associates has been with TidalHealth Peninsula Regional every step of the way. We were there in 2008 when PRMC dedicated it's new 44,000 square foot Emergency Department named after one of our founders, Dr. Robert Adkins. This is the relationship we have with TidalHealth Peninsula Regional.
We are proud to be entering our 40th year of continuous operations and look forward to a bright future.
