SEAFORD – Nanticoke Health Services announced this week that significant progress is being made at the Nanticoke Health Pavilion Seaford building located on the Mears Health Campus across from the post office in Seaford.

On May 18, 2015, hospital leadership and board members from Nanticoke Health Services gathered at the construction site to sign a steel beam that is now part of the building’s frame.

The Nanticoke Health Pavilion Seaford building will bring together multiple services in one location for easier access and convenience for patients. Services will include Seaford’s Nanticoke Immediate Care, walk-in lab and x-ray services, as well as new and current Seaford primary and specialty care physicians.

“This design is really built around the whole idea of integrated care; the physicians working more as a team with the patient really being at the center of everything that we are hoping to do,” said Steve Rose, Nanticoke Health Services President/CEO. “Combining all of these services in one location makes it easier for patients to access the care they need. Patients will be able to see their care providers in the same convenient location where they access diagnostic imaging, lab and rehabilitation services.”

Projected cost at the ground-breaking was $6 million to $7 million. The project is supported by a $1.5 million loan from the state, board designated funds/investments and proceeds from Nanticoke’s sale of Life Care at Lofland.

The first group of physicians is expected begin moving in by the end of September.

Nanticoke Health Services extends its gratitude to project architect, Becker Morgan Group Architects and Engineering, as well as site management, Wohlsen Construction.

Last September, Nanticoke held the ceremonial ground-breaking for the project – a two-story, 33,000 square-foot medical office building that will connect Nanticoke’s two existing buildings at the Mears Health Campus.
