SALISBURY, Md.- A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Wednesday to celebrate Chesapeake Health Care's announcement of the grand opening of its obstetrics and gynecology facility -- a new building located in the heart of the Woodbrooke Medical Campus in Salisbury.

Since 2012, CHC has been the only provider of prenatal care for moms-to-be in Worcester, Wicomico, and Somerset counties.

In 2016, CHC providers delivered more than 1,950 babies. 

In order to meet this growing health care need, CHC began construction on the 26,700-square-foot building in December 2015. 

This much-needed facility combined two smaller, outdated facilities, and provides medical care to more than 17,000 patients in our community.

The new building, located at 1647 Woodbrooke Drive in the Woodbrooke Medical Campus, replaces the OB/GYN location at the Riverside Medical Complex, and the GYN location on Phillip Morris Drive that opened in 1972.

It has been a goal of CHC to reunite the OB/GYN offices since August 2010.

On staff are seven obstetricians/gynecologists, three gynecologists, a board-certified urogynecologist, and seven certified nurse midwives. 

The new Woodbrooke facility has 32 exam rooms, which is 13 more than were in the former OB/GYN locations.
