Center Grand Opening Held

BERLIN — Atlantic General Hospital and Health System celebrated the grand opening of Atlantic General Medical Center in West Ocean City yesterday.

Atlantic General Health System purchased the property, located near the intersection of Route 50 and Old Bridge Road, from Mariani Development Company in 2014 and recently opened two medical practices specializing in pediatrics and family medicine.

“West Ocean City is experiencing great growth and having providers specializing in pediatrics and family medicine in the area will provide easy access for young families moving here,” said Jim Brannon, vice president of professional services at Atlantic General Hospital.

The community is invited to attend the celebration and tour the offices. Dr. Munna Garg, a specialist in internal medicine and pediatrics, and Dr. Danielle Orr, a family practitioner, relocated to the West Ocean City office from Atlantic General Health System’s Ocean Pines location in early 2015.

Pediatricians Anita Pascucci, who previously practiced at the Atlantic Health Center, and Laura Stokes, new to Atlantic General, began seeing patients in early June. All the physicians are accepting new patients.
