Atlantic General announces plans for new medical center in Ocean Pines
BERLIN, Md. – Atlantic General Hospital has announced their plans for a new facility in the Ocean Pines area.
We’re told the project is part of the next phase of the organization’s master facilities plan, funded in part by their Campaign for the Future. The goal of this project is to consolidate several existing services into one single location that is more central to the area’s residents, especially Ocean Pines’ large senior population.
A surgery center is in the works as part of the facility, featuring a spacious operating room and three procedure rooms, with a family-centered recovery area. X-ray services, a lab, drive-through pharmacy, and a new Atlantic ImmediCare clinic location are also in the works for the new facility, as well as a new integrative health center including a community meeting space, treatment rooms, and a demonstration kitchen.
The new facility will be located on Route 589 on the south end of Ocean Pines. Officials are planning to break ground at the site in May 2019.
