After 90 days of being as the president and CEO of Beebe Healthcare during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, it’s nice to be writing good news more frequently.

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and your extended teams for the outstanding leadership and direction you provide to the residents and visitors to Bethany Beach. From major projects like the BB Central Park, the lights along Route 1, and the pending Collins Street expansion…

We get many questions from parents of our pediatric patients. This guide is a great resource for parents to know when and how they can safely come into the office for scheduled appointments and exams.

In their community practice, family medicine physicians Drs. Andrea Arellano Vu, MD, and Kenny Vu, MD, had been exploring an avenue to treat patients who couldn’t easily come in to the office, due to work schedules, transportation issues, being bed-bound, having anxiety over leaving home, or…
