Indianapolis medical facility wins TOBY Award

Duke Realty-developed and managed The Care Group MOB awarded Building Owners and Managers Association’s prestigious regional The Outstanding Building of the Year recognition

(INDIANAPOLIS, April 20, 2012) The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) has named The Care Group Medical Office Building (MOB), 10590 N. Meridian St. in Indianapolis, a North Central Region winner in its highly regarded The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) program.

The 45,000-square-foot MOB was developed by Duke Realty (formerly Bremner Healthcare Real Estate) in 2002 on a 13-acre site on the St. Vincent Heart Center Campus, and was subsequently sold to PHT Investors LLC in 2005. Duke Realty has managed the facility since it opened in 2002.

“It’s an honor for Duke Realty to earn a TOBY award for building management excellence,” says Ryan Rothacker, Vice President, Asset Management & Customer Service, Duke Realty. “The TOBY program is one of the most respected in the commercial real estate industry and BOMA’s judging process is rigorous, so it’s especially exciting to be recognized. This award is a testament to our team and their facility management expertise and service to tenants.”

The MOB, which is fully leased, houses clinical space, an outpatient heart catheterization lab and vascular medicine for St.Vincent Medical Group/The Care Group.

The Care Group MOB had won the Indianapolis TOBY earlier in the year, qualifying it to compete in the North Central Region program. All regional winners will now proceed to the final, international level of competition. All regional winners will be honored and international winners announced live at the TOBY banquet on June 26 during the BOMA International Every Building Show and EXPO in Seattle.

Created in 1985, the TOBY Award is regarded as the most noteworthy and comprehensive evaluation program in the commercial real estate industry. The TOBY program recognizes excellence in building management and operations in several categories based on building size and type. The buildings are thoroughly evaluated during the judging process on all facets of a building’s operations, including tenant relations, commitment to environmental sustainability, emergency preparedness, budgeting, work order systems, security standards, staff experience and continuing education.
