Simone Healthcare Development Group has acquired 1436 Broadway in Hewlett, L.I., and announced plans for the construction of a new medical office offering primary, specialty and urgent care services.
Simone Healthcare Development, which has developed over two million square feet of medical space over the past several years, has already arranged a long-term lease of the property to a major hospital. The target opening date is in the spring of 2014.
“The process of delivering quality medical services is evolving rapidly, as most major hospitals in the New York metropolitan area were built half a century ago or more.
“As hospitals and other health care providers look for new and innovative ways of delivering the best care, we are partnering with them to develop and manage the new facilities they need in order to accomplish those goals,” said Joseph Kelleher, president of Simone Healthcare Development.
In addition to the new facility on Long Island, Simone Healthcare Development is actively working with Montefiore Medical Center, Mount Sinai Hospital, and other major health care providers on new outpatient care centers.
In partnership with Montefiore, Simone Healthcare Development is nearing completion of a 280,000 s/f, multidisciplinary ambulatory care center within Simone’s 42-acre Hutchinson Metro Center office park in the Bronx.
The firm also recently acquired the Park Avenue Medical Arts Center on East 88th Street in Manhattan, which the company will renovate in accordance with the needs of medical tenants.
