Neighborhood Health Care

When Copley Hospital moved out, so did the neighborhood’s access to in-community health care. To address the coverage desert and in-line with new models of accessible, in-neighborhood care, a ~45,000 square foot commercial health care center is proposed.

The health care center will help support the immediate care needs of the community and provide residents of the senior living and independent apartment community with easily accessible medical care. The leased providers will offer immediate care and occupational health within their space. Adjacent uses will include lab space and radiology services and a proposed surgical center.

Discussions are continuing with tenants and managers, but it is envisioned this price-competitive medical office space combined with the density of potential patients in the residences will be highly desired.
