Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) May 19, 2015
McWhirter Realty Partners, a comprehensive real estate services firm offering brokerage, property management and development service, along with MB Real Estate Healthcare Group, today announced they have broken ground on the second medical office building in the Conyers Medical Park. McWhirter Realty Partners is co-developing the building with MB Real Estate (MBRE) Healthcare Group, the project owner. McWhirter is also responsible for the leasing and management. Rockdale Medical Center is the major tenant.
“The healthcare industry is changing rapidly and the demand for healthcare real estate is rising,” said Barry E. McWhirter, president and CEO. “The Conyers Medial Park offers a convenient location with multiple medical disciplines on one campus which satisfies today’s consumer’s needs.”
The expansion provides 30,000 square feet of medical office space and allows Rockdale Medical Center, a subsidiary of LifePoint Health, to expand its urgent care, general surgery, vascular and neurological operations among other specialties. Additional tenants include Piedmont Hospital and MD Pain Management.
“We are excited to be a part of this development which will serve the greater Rockdale County community,” said Peter Westmeyer, president and managing principal of MBRE Healthcare Group. “Rockdale Medical Center is renowned for its patient-centered care and dedicated staff. This new location will further enhance the center’s service offerings to the community by providing expansionary space for existing users while offering new convenient options for additional physician groups and service providers.”
This is the second of four buildings planned for the Conyers Medical Park, an 11 acre campus located at 1301 Sigman Road, Conyers, Georgia. The first building opened in 2009 and is 100 percent leased. The project is scheduled for completion in fourth quarter 2015. MBRE Healthcare Group is also the construction manager of the new development at Conyers Medical Park. Construction services will be provided by Benning Construction Co. and Robertson Loia Roof is providing the architectural services.
“Rockdale Medical Center and its affiliated practices have been successful at the Conyers Medical Park and the expansion will allow us to better serve the needs of our community,” said Cliff Wilson, Assistant Administrator, RMC. “New construction of medical office space is still low and out dated buildings are not well-suited for today’s technology infrastructure or consumer demands for convenient access to healthcare services. This facility will offer state of the art technology and design for today’s changing medical industry.”
