About Atlantic General Hospital's Construction Process?

  • Atlantic General Hospital opened in May of 1993, six weeks ahead of schedule and below budget.
  • The hospital was a $15 million project that was funded by a private-public partnership of individual donors, the State of Maryland, Town of Ocean City, and County grants.

About Atlantic General Hospital's Campus Design?

  • AGH is a 62 bed acute care facility with 56 acute general beds and 6 critical care beds.
  • AGH / HS provides care to over 58,000 residents and visitors to the community each year.
  • In 2003, a 33,000 square-foot expansion to the primary facility was completed primarily to expand the emergency department.
  • In 2008, the 42,000 square-foot James G. Barrett Medical Office Building opened on the hospital's campus, providing space for Atlantic General Endoscopy and Urology Center, Atlantic General Bariatric Center, Atlantic General Hospital Wound Care Center, and the former location of the Regional Cancer Care Center and other healthcare services. The building now also includes Atlantic General Rheumatology and the offices of Atlantic General Urology.
  • In 2018, The John H. 'Jack' Burbage, Jr. Regional Cancer Care Center opened on the hospital's campus. The 18,000-square-foot center, which was built at the corner of Rt. 113 and Old Ocean City Boulevard (Rt. 346), provides one centrally-located, convenient facility for the care and treatment of individuals with cancer and blood disorders. In addition to previously available medical oncology and chemotherapy infusion services and integrative therapies, the new center includes radiation oncology; PET/CT imaging; laboratory services; community education and support facilities; and telemedicine technology that allow patients and their physicians to consult with other cancer care experts at the University of Maryland Greenebaum Cancer Center, preventing unnecessary travel for consultation and follow up care for patients who may require more intensive cancer care services.
  • In 2023, the nearly 50,000 square-foot Gudelsky Family Medical Center was established. The center houses a number of primary care and specialty offices as well as critical ancillary services for northern Worcester County, conveniently located at 10614 Racetrack Road, in Ocean Pines. The new facility includes the office practices of Atlantic General Health System’s primary care providers and specialists located in northern Worcester County and can accommodate future providers as Atlantic General continues recruitment efforts for our medically underserved region. These offices include: Atlantic General Diabetes and Endocrinology Center, Atlantic General Primary Care - Ocean Pines, Atlantic General Pediatrics and Atlantic General Gastroenterology. The Gudelsky Family Medical Center also houses a walk-in lab and x-ray suite and a second AGHRx RediScripts Pharmacy location.
