NEWNAN, Ga., and CHICAGO, March 3, 2021 – Remedy Medical Properties, the nation’s largest private owner of healthcare properties, announced today the completion of the five-story, 113,000-square-foot Piedmont Medical Plaza II. The new medical office building (MOB) is on the Piedmont Newnan Hospital campus in Coweta County, a growing region of southwest Atlanta.
The new outpatient care facility, the second MOB on the Newnan campus, will enable Piedmont Healthcare to provide an even wider range of services there, keeping patients close to home for care.
“Remedy is very excited about our continued collaboration with Piedmont Healthcare. This beautiful new MOB will allow Piedmont to continue expanding their healthcare delivery model to this growing and vibrant region,” says Peter Westmeyer, CEO of the Chicago-based firm. “The spirit of cooperation and flexibility of all project members throughout the construction process, in the face of the pandemic and other assorted challenges, has made all the difference in bringing this important new project to the community, both on time and on budget.”
“The collaboration with Remedy and our development team made this entire process, from planning and design to completion, go smoothly despite challenges we faced during an unprecedented healthcare pandemic,” says Mike Robertson, CEO of Piedmont Newnan Hospital. “This beautiful new medical office space enables us to efficiently and cost-effectively deliver a wide variety of healthcare services close to home for our patients in Coweta and surrounding communities – all within walking distance of Piedmont Newnan Hospital.”
After breaking ground on the MOB in September 2019, the facility construction was completed in December 2020 and a phased move-in of Piedmont services was completed at the end of January 2021.
The new MOB will serve as a conveniently located, one-stop healthcare destination for patients in the growing southwestern Atlanta suburbs. The Newnan service area has a sizable population of more than 212,000, which is projected to grow significantly by 6.2 percent during the next five years.
Located at 795 Poplar Road, the highly visible MOB is in close proximity to the Interstate 85 interchange at Poplar Road, which opened in March 2019, and offers an abundance of nearby parking for patients, physicians and staff. The facility will deliver a full complement of healthcare services by Piedmont Healthcare, including cardiology, cardiovascular imaging, cardiac and pulmonary rehab, general surgery, neurology, orthopedics, physical therapy and occupational therapy.
David Martin, Executive Vice President of Development at Remedy, says, “Piedmont Medical Plaza II was delivered despite some considerable challenges thanks to the adaptability and collaborative spirit of the entire development team.”
That team included local development consultant Carter (carterusa.com), which assisted in site selection, local permitting and construction oversight; general contractor Batson-Cook (batson-cook.com), which kept construction on schedule despite unusually heavy rains and other severe weather, and deployed highly effective pandemic protocols to ensure workplace safety without delaying the project; and architect Earl Swenson Associates Inc. (esarch.com), which designed a functional and beautiful core and shell building, greeting campus visitors at its new northern gateway.
In addition to providing strategic planning, development and leasing services, Remedy owns and will manage the facility.
Some space remains available in the new Piedmont Medical Plaza II. For leasing information, independent physician practices and other providers offering complementary services are invited to contact Remedy’s First Brian Burks, Executive Vice President, Leasing, at 770-891-2082 or BBurks@RemedyMed.com.
