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. Gillis Gilkerson 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
“The building is 100 years old and has continued to deteriorate for the last 40 years. To be honest, I wasn’t very positive about trying to save the building in the beginning.I thought it was a waste of time and money. When Gillis Gilkerson started working with our engineers and demonstrated experience with this type of project, I was relieved to say the least. They had contractors lined up and everything went according to plan. I would be tickled to work on another project with Gillis Gilkerson.”

“Without the professionalism and know-how of the Gillis Gilkerson team, all of our fundraising efforts would not have given us the final result of a beautiful symbol of our maritime heritage on the shores of the Choptank. The project’s unique design required an expertise and adaptation to construction in a maritime environment that Gillis Gilkerson was able to deliver.”
