Woodbrooke Medical Park
The concept behind Woodbrooke evolved over time in a “follow the leader” style story. Peninsula Orthopaedic Associates, a premier orthopaedic group on the Eastern Shore has been in business for more than 50 years. During the early 2000’s, POA and other medical groups experienced growth in demographics and their target patient mass. Northern Worcester and Sussex Counties were rapidly growing along with the demand for healthcare services.
In response to the demand, POA founders Dr. Tom Brandon and Dr. John Hedger optioned 36 acres of land under contract in 2006. They knew in order to expand and grow their business they would need to physically move their offices to a new location. Experts in medicine and science – and not so much in real estate, Doctor’s Brandon and Hedger became frustrated with the process and turned to local developer, Palmer Gillis for help.
After POA built a new 30,000 square foot office on Woodbrooke Drive, other medical professionals followed in their footsteps. The best part – the footprint was already in place. Peninsula Imaging and Peninsula Regional Medical Center were next in line to expand into the Woodbrooke Health Campus, followed by Peninsula Main Street Occupational Health & Urgent Care, Delmarva Pharmacy and Three Lower Counties Community Services, Inc. Devreco was brought on board to facilitate real estate deals that would help develop opportunities for the medical community to be more accessible to the growing population.

What Our Clients Say
“Throughout my 17 years engaging on these types of projects, I can honestly say that Mike (Truitt) was one of the best contractors that I have ever worked with. Throughout the process, Mike provided superior customer service and his communication far exceeded my expectations. Most importantly, he delivered the building on time and with the exact specifications that were discussed. In addition to customer service, Mike and his company provided high-level workmanship. It was clear that Mike took pride in every phase of the project and that pride showed in the final product. Every part of the build out was delivered flawless. Both the interior and exterior of the building are beautiful!”

“For a design/build project it is unusual for the initial cost estimates and timing to be maintained and in this case the project was completed on time and the costs were held to the contract level. In going into a design/build project like this, one always wonders if the right decision was made on the contractor selected. Now that the project has been completed, I can say that I know we made the right decision with Gillis Gilkerson.”
