Gillis Gilkerson Hired to Renovate New Behavior Health Unit for McCready Health
SALISBURY, MD – March 21, 2018 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted construction management and general contracting firms on Delmarva, announced it has been hired to renovate the McCready Outpatient Behavioral Health Unit at 201 Hall Highway in Crisfield, Maryland.
The 20,000 square foot renovation includes new flooring, a new front entrance, ramp and vestibule, a new sliding door, bathroom renovations, new offices, a new reception area and countertops.
“This is a vital step for McCready Health and the community,” said Kathleen Harrison, CEO of McCready Health. “Since establishing the Behavioral Health unit, requests for our services have grown consistently. This project will assure that we can accommodate patients respectfully and confidentially as they work to rebuild their lives.”
“Giving this timeworn structure a facelift is exciting for the hospital and the community it serves,” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson. “When there is an immediate need for expansion, we are here to get the job done in a timely manner to meet the demands of the customer.”
The new facility will more than double both the current capacity and square footage of the unit’s existing space. It will include large and small meeting rooms, six counseling rooms, a private waiting and intake area, and staff offices.
Renovations efforts will include the installation of an accessible and energy-efficient vestibule with sliding glass front doors, and new entrance ramp to the Outpatient Services front lobby.
A redesign of the bathrooms will make the entire area ADA compliant. The entrance to Administration Services will receive new flooring, fresh paint and an overall cosmetic upgrade. Both areas are partially located in the building that originally served as the hospital, which opened in 1923.
Gillis Gilkerson superintendent Don Kelley and project manager Robin Steininger will deliver the project to the client this summer.
