NovaCare Rehabilitation Opens in Delmar as Gillis Gilkerson Completes Construction
President Dwight Miller of Gillis Gilkerson recently announced the company’s completion of a 2,000 square foot tenant fit out for NovaCare Rehabilitation at 38552 Sussex Highway, Unit 102 in Delmar, Delaware. Upon opening, the location will provide access to state-of-the-art medical equipment and programs for patients in need of physical, occupational and hand therapies, sports medicine, and work health services.
“We are excited for NovaCare as they continue to expand throughout the Southern Delaware region,” said Gillis Gilkerson President, Dwight Miller. “We recognize the benefits this company brings to the communities it operates in. Not only do they base their services on community needs, they also hire local residents to staff their centers.”
“This was the most seamless build out that I have ever been a part of,” said Brian Andrews, Regional Director of Operations for NovaCare Rehabilitation. “Gillis Gilkerson was ahead of the game with a punch list, they were always prepared and delivered an inviting, upscale space for our patients to recover comfortably and gain back their independence.”
As NovaCare Rehabilitation expands its footprint on the Delmarva Peninsula, regional residents gain an option for advanced therapeutic healthcare. The company recently launched a new Recovery Reconditioning Program geared toward the rehabilitation needs of those affected by COVID-19. Later this year they will roll out a cancer rehabilitation program for patients who have undergone surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.
Gillis Gilkerson Project Manager Don Murray and Superintendent Don Brady managed the team that built the one-story medical office building. The facility features private and multi-patient treatment rooms, an open gym, administration area, offices, and an employee break room. The exterior is complete with an Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) which offers continuous insulation designed to meet evolving building and energy codes.
