Anchor Health Properties Commences Construction on a New Build to Suit Specialty Eye Center in Maryville, Tennessee
Continuing efforts to enhance specialty healthcare in the Knoxville, Tennessee area, Anchor is serving as owner’s representative and project manager on a new 5,000 square foot build-to-suit specialty eye center on behalf of Southeastern Retina Associates (SERA), a state-of-the-art local practice consisting of 17 board certified ophthalmologists specializing in the treatment and surgery for diseases of the retina, macula and vitreous of the eye.
Directly engaged by SERA to manage the project from concept to ribbon cutting, Anchor is working to expand the practice’s presence in the area and increase access to specialty eye care as SERA’s patient base continues to grow within the community. Working closely with physician ownership, Anchor led the site evaluation, selection, and due diligence process. The new specialty care facility is strategically positioned with high visibility on State Highway 411 in the Knoxville submarket of Maryville and will offer a full suite of retina-focused outpatient eye care services.
“Building upon a long-standing relationship with SERA, we are honored to continue to support SERA in their expansion and real estate needs. We have a successful track record with the project team and are excited to deliver another project that will expand quality of and access to care in Maryville, TN,” shared Jon Nelson, Senior Vice President & Partner with Anchor.
Collaborating with Design Innovation Architects (DIA), Anchor led the team to create a functional design that can be replicated in other markets. Additionally, the team has focused on building brand continuity to enhance recognition across the practice’s network of clinics.
Locally based firms with extensive healthcare facility experience are serving on the project team, including Design Innovation Architects as the architect, Jenkins & Stiles as the general contractor, and Land Development Solutions as the civil engineer. This is the fifth SERA project the design and construction team has worked on together. Construction is slated for completion in Q1 2023.
