The Willow team has proven itself over and over by displaying professionalism and a commitment to excellence. They are a partner to be relied on, anticipating and addressing every detail. The Willow team is always very proactive in avoiding any inconveniences to daily healthcare operations, and most importantly, the team is very sensitive to the patient experience and the safety of patients and medical staff. I consider myself fortunate to have personally partnered with Willow Construction on so many successful healthcare projects.”George B. Shoener, PEConstruction Project Manager, University of Maryland Shore Medical Center
“We are so pleased with the renovation of Sunshine Village, our community in Pocomoke, MD. We understand that occupied rehabs are particularly challenging for a contractor. Many contractors have neither the appetite nor the ability to take on an occupied rehab. We are glad Willow Construction has both. Sunshine Village has been one of the smoothest renovations in our 25-year history. The project team are highly competent problem solvers, excellent communicators, and deliver results. This was our second successful project together. We look forward to our next project on the Eastern Shore.”Polly DukeVP of Design & Construction, Homes for America
“I would like to thank you and your team for all their hard work. Building renovations are always difficult projects, particularly when the building remains occupied. Your team was always professional and willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to address any problem. It has been a pleasure to work with Willow Construction and I look forward to working with you again on future projects.”Terence J. McGeanPE, City Engineer, Town of Ocean City
“The staff at Willow Construction were engaged with the owner’s needs, and sensitive to our time schedules.”Carolyn W. CoreSr. Vice President, Anne Arundel Health Services
“The Easton Office Building turned out to be as beautiful as I knew it would. A nice addition to Mary’s Court in Easton. Well done Willow Construction!”Scott WoodOwner, Country Telephone & Communications
“It was a pleasure to work with Willow, and I appreciate the responsiveness and willingness to accommodate my requests and needs during this process. I would recommend Willow and your team to potential clients in the future. We are beyond pleased with the suite, and look forward to moving in.”Egan Pratt, R.N.Regional Manager, Greenbrook TMS NeuroHealth
