US-based healthcare real estate developer NexCore Group has begun building the Hunt Regional Healthcare Specialty Hospital and Medical Office Building (MOB) in Royse City, Texas.
The two-storey facility aims to expand healthcare access to the growing community east of Dallas.
It is expected to open next year and will cover a total area of 70,000ft².
The facility will feature a ten-bay emergency speciality hospital, five in-patient beds and laboratory services, as well as capabilities for diagnostic imaging, primary care and various speciality practices.
The project is a collaboration between NexCore Group, Hill & Wilkinson General Contractors and architect Page Southerland Page.
The facility’s design aims to enable future expansion to address the community’s changing healthcare needs.
The Hunt Regional Healthcare MOB will consolidate highly trained physicians and surgeons in one location, providing integrated services for the convenience of community members.
It aims to enhance the quality of care and improve treatment efficiency for both patients and physicians.
NexCore Group Real Estate Development executive vice-president Nathan Golik said: “We are pleased to help Hunt Regional further its mission to provide high-quality, service-oriented healthcare to the people in this community.
“Our goal is to create a facility that meets those healthcare needs both now, and in the future, with the building’s surgical expansion capabilities to allow the array of services offered to grow with the community.”
Based in Denver, Colorado, NexCore Group acquires, develops, owns and manages purpose-built facilities for healthcare, science and technology, as well as housing for elderly citizens.
The company has closed more than $5.7bn worth of real estate transactions across 29 US states since its foundation in 2004.
In October last year, it broke ground on a cancer treatment centre in Prescott, Arizona, in partnership with Arizona Oncology.
The 22,105ft² facility is expected to open in September this year.
