Beebe Medical Center Expands Health Services in Millsboro 

By Beebe Healthcare | Jun 20, 2013

Beebe Medical Center proudly announces that it has expanded outpatient health services in Millsboro to make care more convenient for those living in the Millsboro area.  The new services include Beebe Walk-In Care, Beebe Imaging and Beebe Lab Express. These services are located in an expanded and modernized building on Route 113 (28538 Dupont Blvd) that also houses Mid-Atlantic Family Practice. All services there will be available as of June 24.

 

“This expansion supports Beebe Medical Center’s vision of making Sussex County one of the healthiest counties in the nation,” says Alex Sydnor, Vice President of External Affairs for Beebe Medical Center and President and CEO of Beebe Medical Foundation. “We look forward to working together with Mid-Atlantic Family Practice to improve access to health care services. Having Beebe Outpatient Services and Mid-Atlantic Family Practice in one building provides a convenient, one-stop shopping opportunity for our patients.”

 

To celebrate the opening of the modernized building, Beebe Medical Center and Mid-Atlantic Family Practice are holding an open house from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on June 27 that will feature tours, free health screenings, refreshments and a drawing to win an iPad.

 

Beebe Walk-In Care will be open in the afternoons on Monday through Thursday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and daily Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.  Health providers will be available to treat patients with a variety of minor issues such as upper respiratory infections, minor injuries and skin problems, and some medication refills.

 

Beebe Imaging services at the location will include X-ray and mammography.  Hours of operation will be Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 6 a.m. to noon. 

No appointments are necessary for X-rays. Appointments are required for mammography; however, appointments are generally available quite quickly.

 

Beebe Lab Express offers comprehensive testing services Monday through Friday from  6 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 6 a.m. to noon. No appointment is necessary for lab services.

 

Beebe Rehab Services, which include physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech-language pathology, remain available at the existing facility nearby at 232 Mitchell Street in Millsboro, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

 

Beebe Medical Center also is in the midst of expanding the outpatient healthcare services that it already offers in Georgetown, Millville and Milton. It is doing this by creating working relationships with local physicians, business owners, developers, and others to build new facilities and to expand existing.

 

Beebe Medical Center is a not-for-profit community healthcare system with a charitable mission to encourage healthy living, prevent illness, and restore optimal health with the people residing, working, or visiting in the communities we serve. It offers multiple services throughout Southern Delaware including a 210-licensed-bed hospital, a cancer center, and outpatient facilities at multiple sites providing lab, imaging, physical rehab services and walk-in care.  For more information, please visit us online at www.beebemed.org
