(Aug. 27, 20221) Atlantic General Hospital will hold a formal groundbreaking for the new Gudelsky Family Medical Center on Tuesday, Aug. 31 at 2 p.m.
Members of Atlantic General Hospital and Health System’s administration, Board of Trustees, Foundation Board of Directors and its volunteers and associates will gather with local dignitaries, members of the Gudelsky family and other donors to the Atlantic General Campaign for the Future, and community members to commemorate the beginning of construction of the organization’s new outpatient medical center in Ocean Pines, near 10550 Racetrack Road.
The new 53,000-square-foot Gudelsky Family Medical Center, conveniently located near the communities of Ocean Pines and Berlin, will include an outpatient surgery center, lab and imaging services, an additional AGHRx RediScripts Pharmacy location and space for multiple specialty care practices.
The project will allow Atlantic General to provide care in a less costly setting that is also more accessible to the community’s aging population. Construction is expected to be completed in 18 months.
The funds raised during the Atlantic General Campaign for the Future are allowing Atlantic General Hospital to undertake $35 million in capital projects. In addition to the new Gudelsky Family Medical Center to be built in Ocean Pines, work has included completion of the Women’s Health Center in West Ocean City in 2017, the Burbage Regional Cancer Care Center in 2018, and the modernization of the hospital’s inpatient care areas in 2020.
The Gudelsky family donated $4 million toward the Atlantic General Campaign for the Future, which helped the organization surpass its fundraising goal by $2.5 million. The $4 million donation is the largest single private gift Atlantic General Hospital has ever received.
