Woodbrooke Medical Park
The concept behind Woodbrooke evolved over time in a “follow the leader” style story. Peninsula Orthopaedic Associates, a premier orthopaedic group on the Eastern Shore has been in business for more than 50 years. During the early 2000’s, POA and other medical groups experienced growth in demographics and their target patient mass. Northern Worcester and Sussex Counties were rapidly growing along with the demand for healthcare services.
In response to the demand, POA founders Dr. Tom Brandon and Dr. John Hedger optioned 36 acres of land under contract in 2006. They knew in order to expand and grow their business they would need to physically move their offices to a new location. Experts in medicine and science – and not so much in real estate, Doctor’s Brandon and Hedger became frustrated with the process and turned to local developer, Palmer Gillis for help.
After POA built a new 30,000 square foot office on Woodbrooke Drive, other medical professionals followed in their footsteps. The best part – the footprint was already in place. Peninsula Imaging and Peninsula Regional Medical Center were next in line to expand into the Woodbrooke Health Campus, followed by Peninsula Main Street Occupational Health & Urgent Care, Delmarva Pharmacy and Three Lower Counties Community Services, Inc. Devreco was brought on board to facilitate real estate deals that would help develop opportunities for the medical community to be more accessible to the growing population.

“The Salisbury Zoo is pleased to have had the opportunity to work with Gillis Gilkerson on its Animal Health Clinic project. Successful completion of the Clinic project was an essential component of the continued growth and professional accreditation of the Zoo. Additionally the project represented an active partnership between the Zoo, the City of Salisbury, the State of Maryland, and the Delmarva Zoological Society and the regional philanthropic community. All these factors made it imperative that the project be completed in a timely and budgetarily consistent fashion.”
“Gillis Gilkerson seamlessly made the transition from outside contractor to partner in the Animal Health Clinic project. They were proactive about reviewing the plan documents and specifications early in the construction process to make sure there were no problems as the work started.

Gillis Gilkerson was just as invested in the success of this project as the Zoo, the City, and the rest of the project team.”
