White Plains, NY and Warwick, RI (PRWEB) October 31, 2011
Seavest Inc. announced two key milestones in the construction of a new $13.6 million, two-story, 62,454 square foot medical office building (MOB) in Warwick on the campus of Kent Hospital, part of the Care New England Health System.
Following a groundbreaking ceremony in February and onset of construction in May, the Ambulatory Surgery and Medical Office Center at Kent Hospital celebrated its topping off milestone Oct. 10, with construction now about halfway completed.
In addition, Webster Bank has provided $10 million in construction financing for the project. The financing closed Oct. 14.
“These important milestones bring us closer to achieving the hospital’s modernization and expansion objectives, particularly in the area of outpatient services,” says Jonathan L. Winer, Executive Vice President of Seavest Inc. “This project also demonstrates the ability of Seavest to work closely with our client and other members of the real estate project team to implement the provider’s healthcare delivery strategy.”
The Washington, D.C., office of Trammell Crow Co. is developing the building for Seavest. Steffian Bradley Architects of Boston is the architect and Dimeo Construction Co. of Providence, R.I., is the general contractor.
Plans call for the facility to open in summer 2012.
