A joint venture, three years in the making, between Omni Realty Group and Triple Crown Corporation will officially open its doors to a premiere medical facility in Perry County.
This space will house state of the art imaging including MRI, CT, Mammography and X-Ray; laboratory services; cardiology care and cardiology diagnostic testing; and physician specialists – including endocrinology, obstetrics/gynecology, orthopedics, urology and others.
This major project began in January 2012 when Mike Kushner, owner of Omni Realty began researching possible locations for the facility. One of the biggest challenges was finding a well-located tract of land with public water and sewer in Perry County’s semi-rural areas. While it took some time to locate the right land for this project, it was also one of the most critical details to secure.
Mike was successful in finding the ideal location for the facility, named The Medical Professional Center of Newport, on Bretz Court off of Shortcut Road in Howe Township. The new space will allow for many healthcare professionals to move into a shared space that will make quality healthcare more convenient and accessible for Perry County residents.
“PinnacleHealth is pleased to partner with other healthcare providers in Newport to bring expanded and comprehensive outpatient healthcare to Perry County residents,” states Michael A. Young, president and CEO for PinnacleHealth. “Adding increased access to primary care and outpatient services is part of PinnacleHealth’s implementation plan based on the recent Community Health Needs Assessment completed last year.”
PinnacleHealth FamilyCare, who has operated a family practice presence in Newport for many years, will relocate from its office at 28 Shortcut Road and occupy 20,000 square-feet of this new space. Two additional medical office condos have been built and sold to local practitioners, Sisson-Boyer Eyecare, LLC and Daniel Hengst, DMD, Dentistry. Upon opening, 100 percent of this facility will be occupied by medical professionals.
The Medical Professional Center of Newport exemplifies an emerging trend in healthcare real estate strategies which is to develop a hub and spoke healthcare delivery model. The center will provide a central location for a majority of common healthcare needs. Perry County residents will now be able to receive primary care, specialty care, imaging and laboratory services at a single facility which will increase efficiencies and service of care.
