MBRE Healthcare Breaks Ground in Georgia for New On-Campus Medical Office Facility for Piedmont Healthcare

On October 1, 2020, the entire dedicated MBRE Healthcare team separated from MB Real Estate into a newly formed company, not a part of MB Real Estate, known as Remedy Medical Properties.

New five-level, 113,000 square foot outpatient facility in Newnan will support Piedmont Newnan Hospital in bringing a full complement of healthcare services to the growing southwestern Metro Atlanta region.

NEWNAN, GA, and CHICAGO, Oct. 16, 2019 MBRE Healthcare, one of the nation’s largest private owners of healthcare properties, broke ground Sept. 16 for a new 113,000 square foot medical office building (MOB) on the Piedmont Newnan Hospital campus.

Slated to open in late 2020, the new, five-level MOB at 795 Poplar Road will be a critical part of the full-service health campus it will share with the hospital.

The MOB will bring a full complement of Piedmont Healthcare and independent physician services to the southwest Atlanta Metro suburbs, including cardiology, cardiopulmonary rehab, general surgery, neurology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. The MOB will also house administrative, human resources, and classroom space for Piedmont Healthcare.

“MBRE Healthcare is very pleased to partner with Piedmont Healthcare on this wonderful healthcare asset that will bring a variety of needed services to this growing region,” says MBRE Healthcare President Peter Westmeyer. “It’s another example of how we assist foresighted providers like Piedmont Healthcare to anticipate and satisfy the needs of both patients and practitioners in convenient, quality settings by maximizing the opportunities physically, strategically, and financially.”

“The second MOB at Newnan will be a welcome addition to Piedmont Healthcare patients in the greater southwest Atlanta area, including people living south of Newnan more particularly as result of the recent interstate exchange opening at Poplar Road” says Jack Tillman, Vice President and Chief of Real Estate, Piedmont Healthcare. “When completed, this modern facility will enable us and our Piedmont Clinic members to efficiently and cost-effectively deliver a wide variety of healthcare services close to home for our Newnan-area patients, consolidating and expanding on our cardiovascular programs on the campus of Piedmont Newnan Hospital.”

The hospital and the site of the future MOB are highly visible from and offer convenient access to U.S. Interstate 85 and Poplar Road, with an abundance of parking in close proximity to the building.

The project development team also includes Earl Swensson Associates Inc. (ESa) architects and Batson-Cook Construction.
