SALISBURY — The Board of Directors, Executive Team, and OB/GYN Department of Three Lower Counties Community Services, Inc. (TLC) are proud to announce plans to construct a new OB/GYN office on the Woodbrooke Medical Campus in Salisbury. Actual construction is expected to begin in early December of 2015, with an expectation of completion by January 2017.
Father Christopher LaBarge, TLC Board Chairman states “We are grateful for the support of our partners and clients. We appreciate all of the hard work that has made this day possible.”
The new OB/GYN office will replace the OB location at the Riverside Medical Complex and the GYN location on Phillip Morris Drive, which opened in 1972. It has been a goal for TLC to combine the offices, as they have been separated since August 2010, due to a severe lack of space to accommodate all patients within the same office. The addition of a board certified Urogynecologist and five certified nurse midwives further stressed the inadequate space.
Gillis Gilkerson was hired to build the new 21,000 square foot building which will allow further expansion of services and support the excellent standard of care delivered by the providers of Eastern Shore OB/GYN, the Women’s Health division of TLC.
This building will meet or exceed 2015 Energy Code requirements for design and energy efficiency, incorporating, occupancy sensors, stringent insulation requirements, energy efficient lighting and water saving devices.
“We are dedicated to providing solutions to our customers,” said Palmer Gillis, founder, chairman and CEO, Gillis Gilkerson. “TLC’s new combined space will accommodate both their growing patient load and expanding staff and allow for further expansion of services to the community.”
Susanne Gray, CEO states “This day concludes a long journey to begin the construction of a sorely needed building to provide prenatal, preventive and interventional care to our patients. We have no more closets to convert to office space. No patients will be restricted access because we lack exam rooms.”
