Atlantic General Celebrates Completion of Atlantic Health Center Expansion and Renovation

Formal grand opening scheduled for Tuesday, September 22

Atlantic General Hospital announced today that it will hold a formal grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, September 22 at 4 p.m.

Completed in February, the expanded facility now provides a home for The C.R.I.C.K.E.T. Center, Worcester County’s first child advocacy facility. This center is the only one of its kind on the Eastern Shore, offering onsite medical evaluations and the coordinated services of social welfare and law enforcement agencies.

The newly expanded Atlantic Health Center also houses Worcester County’s first outpatient pediatric and adult mental health program and a comprehensive diabetes program. The primary care clinic serving children and adults, regardless of the ability to pay, has also been upgraded.

Funded in part by a $700,000 matching grant from the Maryland Hospital Association, the hospital has raised an additional $550,000 through generous commitments made by the Worcester County Commissioners, the Ocean City Town Council and the Berlin City Council.

Local dignitaries and chambers will be present at the event as well as the current Miss Maryland USA, Gabrielle Carlson, who is passionate in the fight against sexual abuse. The community is cordially invited to attend the ribbon cutting for tours of the facility and refreshments.
