Diagnostic center in the new 87,000-square-foot WakeMed Raleigh Medical Park opened; ambulatory surgery center to open in July and children’s specialty services in the fall
(Raleigh N.C.– June 27, 2012) The new three-story, 87,000-square-foot, Class A WakeMed Raleigh Medical Park, financed, developed, owned, leased and managed by Duke Realty, is open and now offering diagnostic services. The medical park is on the corner of New Bern Ave. and Sunnybrook Rd., adjacent to the flagship WakeMed Raleigh campus.
WakeMed Health & Hospitals’ Diagnostic Center, which includes outpatient imaging, lab services and pre-anesthesia testing, is the first of several healthcare services to be offered in the medical park. Capital City Surgery Center, a 30,000-square-foot ambulatory surgery center (ASC), which is a joint venture between WakeMed and community surgeons, plans to open in July. Duke Children’s Hospital & Health Center and WakeMed Children’s Specialty Services expect to begin serving patients in a 20,000-square-foot space in the medical park in the fall.
The project combined the expertise of Indianapolis-based Duke Realty, a leading commercial real estate developer and owner in Raleigh, N.C. and the surrounding Triangle area, and WakeMed Health & Hospitals, according to Deeni Taylor, Duke Realty Executive Vice President.
“The new Class A medical park represents a significant addition of medical services for Raleigh residents,” Mr. Taylor says. “We have been pleased to join forces with healthcare leader WakeMed and use our real estate experience to expand healthcare options for the community.”
The project architect was the Raleigh office of Chicago-based Perkins+Will Inc., and the general contractor was the Raleigh office of Birmingham, Ala.-based Brasfield & Gorrie LLC.
