Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute
Ocean Pines, MD
In August 2017, Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) cut the ribbon on its new Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute in Ocean Pines (Berlin), Maryland. The 20,000 square foot state-of-the-art medical facility was constructed by Gillis Gilkerson and is located just outside of the Ocean Pines North Gate community off of Route 589 (Racetrack Road).
The Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute is home to a number of comprehensive cancer treatment service teams, including physician specialists with access to advanced treatment technology. Care provided in the facility extends to include TrueBeam radiation therapy—an image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery system that can achieve accuracy within less than a millimeter, helping to spare healthy tissue while killing cancer cells.
The Cancer Institute is also home to a modern, comfortable infusion therapy center, designed to ease the process of chemotherapy for patients. While being treated at the Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute, patients will also have access to cancer-patient support services, nutritional consultants, and a healing garden. PRMC also presents clinical trial opportunities as a result of their participation in the Johns Hopkins Clinical Research Network and National Cancer Institute studies.

What Our Clients Say
“The Salisbury Zoo is pleased to have had the opportunity to work with Gillis Gilkerson on its Animal Health Clinic project. Successful completion of the Clinic project was an essential component of the continued growth and professional accreditation of the Zoo. Additionally the project represented an active partnership between the Zoo, the City of Salisbury, the State of Maryland, and the Delmarva Zoological Society and the regional philanthropic community. All these factors made it imperative that the project be completed in a timely and budgetarily consistent fashion.”
“Gillis Gilkerson seamlessly made the transition from outside contractor to partner in the Animal Health Clinic project. They were proactive about reviewing the plan documents and specifications early in the construction process to make sure there were no problems as the work started. The team made every effort to stay ahead of the curve and even worked on marginal weather days in order to keep the project moving and on schedule. Gillis Gilkerson was just as invested in the success of this project as the Zoo, the City, and the rest of the project team.”
“The Salisbury Zoo would be happy to once again partner with Gillis Gilkerson on future endeavors.”
~ Ralph Piland,
Salisbury Zoo Director
“Gillis Gilkerson has been extremely accommodating to work with. As an out-of-town developer we face the challenge not knowing how things work in a different market. Dwight Miller has been forth coming with the information needed and is always accessible. We made some demands throughout the project thus far that he has continuously met to our standards. It is great to work with a general contractor that is always available and makes our job as developers easier.”
~ Jerry Passaro,
Jamestown Development Group.
