Tampa Medical Development Remains On Course
The new three-story, 96,000-square-foot medical office building on the existing AdventHealth Wesley Chapel campus has reached the construction milestone of “topping out” — finishing the building’s core structure. The project is on schedule to be completed successfully by the end of the year. The facility is a partnership between AdventHealth and Moffitt Cancer Center to bring modern outpatient cancer treatment to the AdventHealth Wesley Chapel. Capital Growth Medvest, headquartered in Birmingham, Ala., is the healthcare project’s real estate developer.
When completed, the facility will provide treatments for a wide range of specialties, including oncology, orthopedics and physical therapy. The medical office building will also feature an ambulatory surgery center, classroom space, and a convenient retail pharmacy.
“This area is seeing rapid growth, the population is exploding. There is a need for this community to have world-class cancer care,” said Dr. Louis Harrison, the chief partnership officer for Moffitt.
Brasfield & Gorrie, a nationally ranked construction firm, is acting as the project’s general contractor. They are working diligently to actively minimize the impact of construction on the campus’ patients and healthcare professionals. HuntonBrady Architects, recognized with 65 American Institute Design Awards, is the project architect.
