Delmarva Health Pavilion to open in Ocean Pines

(Oct. 22, 2015) More than a year after the initial groundbreaking, the new Delmarva Health Pavilion Ocean Pines was set to open Wednesday on Racetrack Road near the North Gate.
Construction firm Gillis Gilkerson first put shovels in the grounds of the new complex, which includes the 20,000-square-foot Building One anchored by Peninsula Regional Medical Center, in September of last year.
“We are really, really pleased to bring to this community a regional health care facility that’s looked upon in this area as a high-profile, excellent deliverer of health care and bring it directly to this community of Ocean Pines,” developer Palmer Gillis said during the ground-breaking ceremony on Sept. 25, 2014.
Gillis said he began eying the property more than 10 years ago but went on to co-develop complexes in Woodbrook and Millsboro, Del. with PRMC.
Speaking on behalf of the Salisbury-based nonprofit hospital, PRMC President and CEO Dr. Peggy Naleppa called the developer a “long-term partner.”
Said she the complex consolidates Berlin and Ocean Pines practices into the Peninsula Regional Family Medicine Ocean Pines. Also joining the practice is PRMC’s FamilyLab, which makes the move from its previous location in Berlin.
“Patients, particularly in the Ocean Pines community, have written letters that said, ‘Can you please do something to help with the facilities at our offices?’ This will certainly honor that request,” she said during the initial groundbreaking.
Along with family practices, PRMC will provide cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation and adult fitness from its Guerrieri Heart & Vascular Institute team.
Visitors will also be able to fill prescriptions and pick up over-the-counter medicines at PRMC Home Scripts, a full-service community pharmacy that includes a drive-through window and home delivery services.
The Junior Auxiliary Board Pines Café, similar to the Junior Board’s Café at PRMC, will feature snacks, refreshments, gifts and sandwiches.
In addition to Building One, Gillis Gilkerson has plans for four more buildings at the Delmarva Health Pavilion.
“As medical center builders and developers, we have constructed over one million square feet of medical facilities on Delmarva and we’ve enjoyed a strong working relationship with PRMC for over 20 years,” Gillis said in a recent press release.
“The Delmarva Health Pavilion Ocean Pines provides convenient healthcare access for Ocean Pines, Berlin and Ocean City residents as well as all of Worcester County.”
