Atlantic General Health System's Townsend Medical Center to Undergo Renovation
10th Street, Ocean City location to see upgrades to both the family practice
and Atlantic ImmediCare
As part of continuing efforts to improve access to medical care for the
residents and vacationers of Worcester County, Atlantic General Hospital/Health
System will begin a renovation of the Townsend Medical Center on 10th
Street in Ocean City in January 2009.
“We are excited about this project and what it means for our community,”
said Kim Justice, vice president of planning and operations at Atlantic
General Hospital/Health System. “The renovations will allow for
added convenience for those urgent care patients seen within Atlantic
ImmediCare, as well as additional exam rooms and expanded occupational
Cosmetic upgrades will also be made to the lobby and existing patient
exam areas while creating space for diagnostic services such as on-site
blood work and x-rays with minimal changes to the exterior of the building.
The Townsend Medical Center’s family practice will remain open during
the renovation with no extended interruptions to the medical care provided
to the community. Justice anticipates the project to be complete by the
time Atlantic ImmediCare reopens for the season in May of 2009.
“Visitors will still have a place to go in downtown Ocean City for
fast, quality medical care at the beginning of the busy tourist season,”
