WILMINGTON, Del. — Anchor Health Properties have been selected as the development manager of the 73,000-square-foot medical office building at Indian River Medical Center located in Vero Beach, Florida.
The project, on which construction began in October of 2015, will be a multi-specialty MOB that will contain The Heart Center, Medical and Surgical Specialists, Primary Care and Concierge Medicine at Indian River Medical Center. The Health and Wellness Center is adjacent to IRMC Hospital and the Scully-Welsh Cancer Center – Both IRMC’s Heart Center and the Scully Welsh Cancer Center are affiliated with Duke Medicine.
“Our goal in designing the layout for this project is to create a flexible space that brings maximum operational efficiency. It has to not only be convenient and comfortable for patients, but also effectively integrate physician care as well as reflect the Indian River brand,” said Paula Crowley, chairman of Anchor Health Properties. “This is exactly the type of project where our background in retail development marries perfectly with creating a positive customer experience in a medical setting.”
The MOB will support Indian River Medical Center, a 335-bed, not-for-profit hospital, centrally located on Florida’s east coast just off of U.S. highway 1. Once complete, the MOB will provide services to Indian River County, as well as St. Lucie, Martin, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola, Polk and Seminole Counties.
Array Architects has been chosen as project architect. Brasfield & Gorrie will be the project’s construction manager.
The project is slated for completion in fall of 2016.
