BERLIN – With site work currently underway, construction on the second phase of the Delmarva Health Pavilion Ocean Pines is set to begin this summer.
According to developer Palmer Gillis, construction of the second building in the new medical complex should take a year. When complete, the new building will allow Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) to expand its cancer care program in Worcester County.
“We’re taking what we’ve done in Salisbury and bringing it to Worcester County,” said Thomas DeMarco, medical director for PRMC’s Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute.
Gillis received site plan approval for the 20,000-square-foot cancer center last week from the Worcester County Planning Commission. Though he was originally granted approval for the project last year, minor elevation changes required a new approval from the commission. The proposed building is the same size as the one already on the site and is expected to mirror it in appearance.
