SALISBURY, Md. — Founding Principal Palmer Gillis of Gillis Gilkerson recently announced the groundbreaking of the firm’s final development and construction project for TidalHealth within their Ocean Pines campus on Cathage Road in Worcester County, Maryland. The new structure will complete the 120,000-square-foot healthcare campus, adding a variety of medical disciplines to its current offering.
In the new building, TidalHealth plans to add orthopedics, cardiology, obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN), endocrinology, medical imaging, and weight loss and wellness clinics. The addition of these medical specialties supplements those already in place – primary care and gastroenterology physicians, a pharmacy and laboratory, an adult fitness center, and the Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute.
“In partnership with Gillis Gilkerson, we broke ground on our Ocean Pines campus in 2014, and over the past seven years we’ve been warmly welcomed by this community,” said Chris Hall, MSM, TidalHealth’s Vice President of Strategy and Business Development and Chief Business Officer.
“This final building rounds out the site at nearly 120,000 square feet of healthcare space operated by the largest and most complex healthcare provider in our region. This reinforces TidalHealth’s commitment to our campus and to offer services, like award-winning cancer care, cardiology, and more, in communities like Ocean Pines, providing exceptional healthcare options that are close to home, the greatest value for that care, and the delivery of those services in the most appropriate and convenient setting.”
“We have had a successful working relationship with TidalHealth for over 25 years,” said Mr. Gillis. “Through our partnership we have created a scope of work and straightforward implementation process to deliver ‘keys in the door’ in less than 12-months, start to finish.”
Within the last year, Gillis Gilkerson and TidalHealth have partnered to develop nearly 50,000 square feet of premier medical real estate. Three of the four new buildings are located within Woodbrooke (Salisbury) and Berlin Main Place (Berlin). The fourth building is situated within close proximity to the active Ocean Pines development.
“Most of these projects started with a need and a simple sketch,” added Mr. Gillis. “As a design-build contractor and developer, we have created over 2 million square feet of medical office space on Delmarva.”
Upon project completion, 25,000 square feet of vacant space will be available for lease. To inquire, contact Principal Brad Gillis of NAI Coastal at 410-543-5115 or emainl email@example.com.
