Pines Getting ‘Big Practice’ article in The Daily Times



A project looking to create more efficient healthcare in Ocean Pines will officially open at the end of the month.

The Delmarva Health Pavilion Ocean Pines, of the Peninsula Regional Medical Center, is set for a grand opening and ribbon cutting Oct. 28 at 4 p.m. The facility is located at Route 589, also known as Racetrack Road, near the North Gate of Ocean Pines.

The Ocean Pines facility is a essentially a relocation of different services already provided in the Worcester County area, PRMC Vice President of Strategy and Business Development Chris Hall said.

“They’re merging into one big practice,” Hall added.

This first building, which is just the tip of the iceberg for what is in store, will house a cardiac rehabilitation center, primary care physicians, a pharmacy and a lab draw station where people can get blood taken.

It’s what Hall calls a one-stop shop.

Health care is changing and people are looking for more convenience, he said.

“It just enhances what we’ve been doing in Worcester County,” Hall said.

This type of facility is providing services that used to have to be done at a hospital and taking them out into the community, PRMC Community Relations Director Roger Follebout said.

The health pavilion is especially important in helping keep people healthy because if it’s close and convenient, they’re more likely to come in regularly and also be more compliant with medications, Follebout said.

“It’s an outstanding opportunity,” he said. “We’re excited to get open.”

The facility had a soft opening the week of Oct.19, with practices moving in the weekend prior. The formal opening and ribbon cutting will include refreshments and tours.

But, that’s not all that’s in store.

More buildings are in the works, including a cancer treatment center, Hall said.

The property was designed with five buildings in mind, CEO of builder and developer Gillis Gilkerson Palmer Gillis said.

It will be an estimated 90,000 square feet of medical or professional space. The first building opening at the end ofthe month is 20,000 square feet.

Putting the facility at the entrance of Ocean Pines makes sense because it’s the largest residential community in Worcester County, Gillis said.

“Delivering healthcare is about trying to be more efficient,” he said, and this project is delivering it “almost to your footsteps.”

The Delmarva Health Pavilion Ocean Pines, shown above and below, is set for a grand opening on Wednesday, Oct. 28, at 4 p.m.

What Our Clients Say

This was definitely not an off-the-shelf type hotel. It was a custom design to maximize our guests’ experiences. There is nothing like this anywhere in our market area. Gillis Gilkerson did a great job and the quality and craftsmanship is second to none.

~ Christian Hudson,
Hudson Management Group

“The original roof was only seven years old so finding out that we needed a whole new roof – the hard way – was disappointing. The team from Gillis Gilkerson addressed every single concern we had from the very beginning. They even called me on July 4th when we had bad storms in the area and asked if they could get inside the church to make sure everything was safe and secure. Now that’s commitment.”

~ Bruce Glisson,
Executive Pastor,
Allen Memorial Baptist Church

“The global expertise in all aspects of the building construction and access to various sub-contractors was a blessing given the number of technical details that needed to be attended to while we obtained certification from the state health care officials.”

“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.”
