Anchor Health Properties Breaks Ground on Build-to-Suit Specialty ENT Center in Knoxville, Tennessee
Serving as the fee for service developer on behalf of Greater Knoxville Ear Nose & Throat, Anchor recently broke ground on a new 13,267 square foot specialty care center in Powell, Tennessee. The new facility provides additional space for the region's premier otolaryngology physician group to grow its patient base and better serve the surrounding community.
Strategically located adjacent to the North Knoxville Medical Center campus, the new ground up facility features high visibility and will benefit from cross referral opportunities with the neighboring, complementary healthcare services.
In collaboration with Design Innovation Architects, Anchor’s development team, led by Jon Nelson, Senior Vice President and Director of Operations and Joe Hackney, Senior Development Director, held a highly interactive design process with key leadership from the physician group to ensure an efficient workflow for staff and intuitive wayfinding for patients and visitors.
“We’re pleased to be able to grow our relationship with the physicians at Greater Knoxville Ear Nose & Throat and help them bring a world-class specialty ENT care center to the area,” stated Joe Hackney, Senior Development Director with Anchor. “As Anchor continues to grow its “boots on the ground” presence in Tennessee, we are looking forward to working with the full project team on this expansion and being a larger part of the medical hub of activity in Knoxville.”
Featuring a modern exterior façade and multiple specialties under one roof, including Ear Nose & Throat, Audiology, and Allergy services, the project team developed color-coded pods for each specialty to provide noticeable guides throughout the facility.
From project commencement, Anchor has worked closely with the general contractor, Jenkins & Stiles, and civil engineer, Land Development Solutions, to successfully navigate material cost escalations and supply chain concerns through early on structural changes to proactively adjust to market conditions. Through this process, the project team anticipates an on-time completion in Q3 2022.
