Our facility is located in New Castle County, the northern-most county in the State of Delaware. New Castle County’s population is approximately 540,000. Glasgow Medical Center is located
at the western end of the county, approximately 16 miles from center city Wilmington and 2 miles from the Maryland border.
Demographics indicate the population in our immediate service area has a median age of 35.3.
Since 2000, Glasgow has had a population growth of 25%, with population in the service area
at 150,000. In recent years, we have witnessed substantial business expansion in the Glasgow
area. The development of our medical facility at Glasgow has been a natural outgrowth of the
need to provide convenient, efficient, and affordable health care to our local community.
An integral part of the community for the past 23 years, the first phase of Glasgow Medical Center (Building I @ 57,000 sq. ft.) was constructed in 1990. It consisted of physician office space,
the Glasgow Medical Aid Unit, lab, and x-ray. The Medical Aid Unit is an urgent care facility, staffed by physicians and nurses seven days a week. Patients are seen on a first-come, first serve basis. The average time for service is less than 30 minutes.
In 1996, an additional adjoining building (Building II @ 53,000 sq. ft.) was added to provide more office space and to house the Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC). Our ASC is a multi-specialty facility with four operating rooms and two procedure rooms. We are licensed by the State and Medicare approved. Originally accredited by AAAHC in 1998, the Glasgow Ambulatory Surgery Center remains accredited with this prestigious health care accrediting organization. For the last 3 consecutive years, Glasgow Ambulatory Surgery Center (GASC) has won the Apex Quality Award; named 1 of the top 20 outpatient surgical facilities nationally.
Glasgow Medical Aid Unit at Christiana, opened on November 1, 2004 to provide service to residents and workers in the mid-county area. Glasgow Medical Aid Unit at Middletown opened
in October, 2005 to provide service to residents and workers in the lower New Castle County area.
The original Glasgow Medical Aid Unit has served the Newark/Bear/Glasgow area since 1990.
The Medical Aid Units are an attractive alternative when your physician is not available or your condition does not warrant a visit to the Hospital Emergency Dept.
Our New Castle County medical community consists of over 1,000 practitioners. Approximately, 100 physicians have offices in our facility and over 50 have privileges in our Surgery Center. A paramedic sub-station is located at the corner of our Glasgow Facility.
