Lewes, Del.-based Beebe Healthcare opens its new specialty surgery center in Rehoboth Beach, Del., on May 16.
"We want to provide the kind of comprehensive care so if someone needs to stay for longer than a couple hours, they have the ability to have a bed, have comfortable room, surroundings, and get the care they need," David Tam, MD, Beebe's president and CEO, told WRDE News.
The new center is the latest addition to Beebe's Rehoboth Health Campus and adds beds that will be critical in the event of another COVID-19 surge.
The Beebe website says the hospital will provide "a streamlined experience for surgical patients and physicians alike, and will focus on enhancements for short-stay, planned surgical procedures."
Beebe has plans for other new facilities and expansions in nearby Delaware cities Millsboro and Frankford.
