Last week Bon Secours Virginia announced the beginning of the second phase of the campus development plan for Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center. The health system plans to break ground on a 105,000 square foot, four-story medical office building, which will be located on the medical center campus, just off Granby Street at 150 Kingsley Lane, by late summer or early fall of this year.
According to the plans, building occupancy is expected to be available for occupancy by fall of 2013.
The $25 million new office building will be home to specialists and primary care physician practices. At the core will be a comprehensive cancer center, which will place state-of-the-art technology in the hands of cancer experts, enabling them to address the unique needs of those battling cancer.
“Over the past three years, Bon Secours has continued to demonstrate its commitment to the Norfolk community by making a series of investments in programs and services at Bon Secours DePaul,” said John E. Barrett, CEO, Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center. “With the first phase of investments completed we are looking forward to the development of our new medical office building, which marks the start phase two. Our final phase of development will be the construction of the new Bon Secours DePaul to allow us to better serve our community.”
During phase one developments last year at DePaul, the health system invested in new equipment and expansions, including:
- A neuroscience intensive care unit
- New cardiac catheterization laboratory
- An interventional neurovascular laboratory
- Hampton Roads first low-dose 64-slice computerized tomography scanner
- A state-of-the-art robotic surgical system for the minimally invasive surgery program
- Renovations on the patient care units
- Recruitment of numerous physician experts
- Significant site preparations and extensive planning with the Norfolk Planning office and Duany Plater-Zyberk
Lend Lease Dasco, a national leader in the development, financing, leasing and management of medical office buildings and outpatient facilities will partner with Bon Secours on the project.
