In collaboration with Intuitive Health and HonorHealth, Anchor Health Properties has recently commenced a local, long-term development and expansion initiative.
Through the addition of strategically located facilities in and around Phoenix, Anchor, Intuitive, and HonorHealth are focused on improving the health and well-being of the community by providing convenient and easily accessible care in customer service-led environments that are patient- and family-centered.
As a strategic real estate partner for Intuitive’s growing pipeline of build-to-suit hybrid provider-based combined emergency department/urgent care facilities across the United States, Anchor led key leadership from Intuitive and HonorHealth through a site selection and community engagement process resulting in identification and control of centrally positioned retail locations with high visibility featuring close proximity to local hospitals.
Since 2008, Intuitive Health has partnered with established health systems nationwide to build, operate, launch, and retain healthcare facilities that provide urgent care and emergency room services under one roof.
In support of Intuitive’s guiding principles and utilizing the programmatic model designed by e4h Architecture, Anchor has explored various options to enhance flexibility of space allowing use for multiple specialties within the facility while remaining focused on implementing value-engineering strategies and sustainable design elements that will not sacrifice project vision. The new facilities will accommodate walk-ins and offer an ambulance drop off through a 24/7 operating platform that is designed for speed of patient visits and efficient flow of provider care.
This initiative marks Anchor’s development entry into the Phoenix market, which complements the company’s existing investment portfolio and asset and property management presence in the area. Devenney Group and JE Dunn Construction are serving as the architect and general contractor respectively on these projects. (Source)
