Ground Broken on Office Building at Germantown Hospital Campus

August 27, 2014

 

The Hercules Pinkney Life Sciences Park on the campus of Montgomery College in Germantown continues to grow as ground was broken on Wednesday, Aug. 27 on a new medical office building which will serve the new Holy Cross Germantown Hospital slated to open in October.

    “The medical office building on the Holy Cross Germantown Hospital campus is one of three outpatient care centers that NexCore is currently developing for CHE Trinity Health in different parts of the country,” said Jarrod Daddis, executive managing director of development at NexCore Group. “The Germantown medical office building is a unique facility because of its direct connection to the first new hospital in Montgomery County in 35 years, its location within a life sciences park, and its incorporation of LEED Silver building standards.”

   Denver-based NexCore Group, a national healthcare real estate developer with an office in Bethesda, has broken ground on a new 79,491square-foot building. Holy Cross Health selected NexCore Group in a national competition to develop, own, lease and manage the four-storymedical office building on the new hospital campus.

   “NexCore Group is a healthcare-focused real estate developer that understands the strategic objectives of the hospital and the physicians,” said Annice Cody, president of the Holy Cross Health Network. “NexCore’s team appreciates the critical role the medical office building will play in the overall success of our new hospital."

   The building will play an integral role on the Germantown campus as it will be home to a full complement of physician services, both primary care and specialty, according to NexCore. The physician groups and ancillary healthcare providers in the building will provide much needed services to the growing population of Montgomery County in a high quality, patient friendly environment. The office building will also house diagnostic and retail services.

   The new 93-bed hospital will be conected to the new medical office building, as well as, a 696-space parking garage on the ground floor by a climate controlled connector to create ease of access for patients, providers and staff. The connector will pass through a healing garden that will be located between the office building and connector.

   The building, which is being developed to LEED Silver standards, will include features such as high efficiency air handling units, a lighting control system, and a green roof. Green roofs provide several benefits such as filtering pollutants out of the air and rainwater, insulating the building from outside noise, and creating natural habitats.

   As the anchor tenant of the Hercules Pinkney Life Sciences Park at Montgomery College, Holy Cross Germantown Hospital will be the first hospital in the nation on a community college campus with an educational partnership. Through an innovative partnership based on a shared commitment to education and the well-being of the community, Holy Cross and Montgomery College have significantly increased nursing student enrollment to help address a shortage of nurses. Holy Cross Germantown Hospital will provide funding, clinical rotations for nursing and allied health students, instructional space and faculty for the college’s healthcare programs.
