OCEAN PINES, Md. – On August 31, Atlantic General Hospital celebrated the groundbreaking for the Gudelsky Family Medical Center, the latest project funded, in part, by the Campaign for the Future, which concluded in late 2019 with a goal-breaking gift of $4 million from the Gudelsky family.

The 53,000 square foot facility, to be located on the southern end of Racetrack Road in Ocean Pines, will provide the local community and surrounding areas easier access to necessary medical services in a more cost-effective environment.

The Gudelsky Family Medical Center will include multiple services, including the first multispecialty outpatient surgery center in Worcester County, an additional AGHRx RediScripts Pharmacy, laboratory and imaging services, a new Atlantic ImmediCare location, and other specialty offices.

Attending the event was President and CEO Michael Franklin, Atlantic General senior leadership and staff, local elected officials, Campaign for the Future donors, including the Gudelsky family, and the property developers. All those who helped bring this project to fruition were given the opportunity to break ground at the event, marking the beginning of construction.

“Since 1993, Atlantic General has kept a close eye on the growing Worcester County population, and the significant acceleration of the Grayshore. It had become evident that our community was in need of another medical facility; one that would provide easier access to specialty services and care for our older generations. It was this recognition of our community’s needs that sparked the planning for the Gudelsky Family Medical Center,” commented AGH President and CEO Michael Franklin. “We would like to express our most sincere appreciation for the Gudelsky family and the many other Campaign for the Future donors. Their generosity will give us the opportunity to provide Ocean Pines and the surrounding community with convenient, high-quality, locally accessible medical care at the future Gudelsky Family Medical Center.”

The 18-month construction project is scheduled for completion in early 2023.
