Bayhealth hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for Bayhealth Total Care, a new and innovative approach to providing healthcare in Sussex County. Strategically located at the intersection of Lewes-Georgetown Highway (Route 9) and Hudson Road in Milton, Bayhealth Total Care will be the first healthcare facility of its kind in Delaware. It will be home to a hybrid emergency and walk-in center, imaging and lab services, as well as primary and specialty care offices. The 48,500 square foot, modern healthcare facility is slated to open in a little more than a year in early 2023.
“This is a very exciting day as it marks a milestone in our commitment to providing southern Delaware access to top-quality healthcare, close to home,” said Bayhealth President and CEO Terry Murphy, FACHE. “The opening of Bayhealth Total Care is the next big step in a well-thought-out plan to invest in healthcare across Sussex County. As our community will recall, nearly three years ago we opened Bayhealth Sussex Campus, our new, state-of-the-art hospital along Route 1, which has allowed us to better care for this community in a beautiful, well-equipped space using the latest technology.”
Bayhealth Total Care will add to the local area five primary care clinicians with the ability to cover thousands of patient visits every year. It will also offer community members convenient access to specialty care doctors like neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, cardiologists, oncologists, and more. The addition of emergency facilities may also relieve some of the pressure from area emergency departments, including Bayhealth Sussex.
“This model will transform emergent and urgent care access for southern Delaware,” said Chief Medical Officer Gary Siegelman, MD, MSc. “Instead of guessing what level of care they need, patients can walk in the door and our trained medical professionals, including emergency certified physicians, will determine it for them.” Visit Bayhealth.org/Total-Care to stay informed on the project.
