Berlin, Md. – The Atlantic General Hospital Campaign for the Future recently
received a donation of $100,000 from the charitable foundation of M&T
Bank at the groundbreaking of the new John H. “Jack” Burbage
Regional Cancer Care Center.
We’re extremely grateful for the commitment shown to our not-for-profit
community hospital and the generous support of local businesses like M&T
bank. The way healthcare services are delivered is changing, but Atlantic
General’s commitment to state-of-the-art medicine only grows stronger.
We can help AGH meet the challenges of providing the very best healthcare
services right here – close to home,” said Campaign for the
Future Co-Chair Jack Burbage.
“Atlantic General Hospital is a premier provider of health care to
the citizens of the Delmarva Peninsula and M&T Bank is proud to support
the growth and expansion of AGH’s services,” said Nick Lambrow,
president of M&T Bank’s Delaware region.
About the Campaign for the Future
The funds raised during the $10 million Atlantic General Campaign for the
Future will allow Atlantic General Hospital to complete $35 million in
capital projects. Among them is construction of a new 18,000-square-foot
full service cancer care center, completion of a women’s health
center in West Ocean City, renovation of existing surgical facilities
and expansion of emergency services within Atlantic General Hospital as
well as improvements to inpatient care areas.
To date, the Foundation has already secured over $3,000,000 of the $10
million goal in pledges, commitments and grants.
About the John H. “Jack” Burbage Regional Cancer Care Center
The new 18,000-square-foot Regional Cancer Care Center, which is to be
built on hospital-owned property at the corner of Rt. 113 and Old Ocean
City Boulevard (Rt. 346) in Berlin, Md., will provide one centrally-located,
convenient facility for the care and treatment of individuals with cancer
and blood disorders.
In addition to existing medical oncology and chemotherapy infusion services
and integrative therapies, the new center will include radiation oncology;
PET imaging; laboratory services; community education and support facilities;
and telemedicine technology that will allow patients and their physicians
to consult with other cancer care experts, preventing unnecessary travel
for consultation and follow up care for patients who may require more
intensive cancer care services.
Construction is due to begin in June 2017, with completion in early 2018.
