Beebe Healthcare to open Beebe Weekend Walk-In Care in Lewes
To provide additional healthcare services to the people living, working, and visiting our local community, Beebe Healthcare has opened a temporary Beebe Weekend Walk-In Care location at 1526 Savannah Road in Lewes. Hours of operation will be from noon to 8 p.m. on Fridays and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
This new Weekend Walk-In location is housed in the same building as are the offices of Beebe Medical Group physicians Kathryn Grinnen, DO, Bobby Gulab, MD, and Bhaskar Palekar, MD. This location is easily accessible from Route 1, as well as from the beach and resort areas of Lewes and Cape Henlopen State Park.
Construction is under way at the Bookhammer Outpatient Center at 18941 John J. Williams Highway (Route 24) in Rehoboth Beach, where Beebe Healthcare will open a fourth, year-around Beebe Walk-In Care location in the late summer or early fall (The temporary Beebe Weekend Walk-In Care location in Lewes will close with the opening of the Walk-In Care location in Rehoboth Beach).
The Beebe Walk-In Care in Rehoboth Beach is about one-half mile west of Route 1, with plenty of parking available. Also housed in this single-story building are: Beebe Rehab Services, Beebe Imaging, Beebe Lab Express, and the Beebe Outpatient Surgery Center. The three-story Medical Arts Building adjacent to this location houses Beebe’s Tunnell Cancer Center on the first floor and many medical offices on the two upper floors.
Conveniently, patients who have visited other Beebe Walk-In Care locations can have their physicians obtain copies of their medical record from past walk-in experiences. In addition, Beebe physicians can access their patients’ records through the electronic medical record system. The Rehoboth Walk-In will join the existing Beebe Walk-In Care locations listed below:
