Beebe’s Integrative Health and Population Health teams are here to support and empower our community members, no matter where they are in their wellness journey.
As healthcare evolves, so too does the way people have surgery. Gone are the days when a person schedules surgery and is in the hospital for several days before going home.

Beebe Healthcare leaders have been watching this and are responding by planning to build a $124 million Specialty Surgical Hospital at the Rehoboth Beach Health Campus.
Beebe Medical Foundation is the philanthropic arm – raising funds for Beebe Healthcare through generous community support. Judy Aliquo, President & CEO of Beebe Medical Foundation talked with Jeffrey Hawtof, MD, about why she believes in Beebe. “My husband and I have had a house in the area for years, so even before I came to work here at the Foundation, I was familiar with Beebe,” said Judy. “We had our first experiences in Beebe’s Emergency Department and always experienced great care. I knew even then that Beebe would be an organization I could work for because it was easy to see how amazing the team was here and still is today!”
