An expanding local medical group that’s hungry for its own real estate is fueling the latest high-dollar healthcare development in Mechanicsville.

OrthoVirginia is building a $20 million, 63,400-square-foot medical office facility next to Bon Secours’ Memorial Regional Medical Center off Atlee Road.

The orthopedic specialist group will occupy about 25,000 square feet of the three-story building, Chief Operating Officer Rhonda Coor said. Bon Secours Richmond Health System will lease a similar-sized space inside the property. Another roughly 13,000 square feet is still available.

Coor said the orthopedic treatment center has outgrown the space it currently leases in a medical office building at the Bon Secours medical center.

“As we’ve grown, we’ve had to grow across the hall. We aren’t all together,” she said. “It’s very confusing for the patient.”

The new building will also allow OrthoVirginia to expand its growing hand therapy program, and the location will increase visibility for the brand.

The project is on track for a December completion.

Nine OrthoVirginia physicians will see patients in the new facility, but surgeries will continue to be done in the hospital, Coor said. Another 40 to 45 OrthoVirginia employees will work in the new building.

Bon Secours will use part of the space it leases in the new building for its growing primary care practices, said John Turner, vice president of the Bon Secours Orthopaedic Institute. It is still figuring out how to best use the rest of the space.

In the past four years, Bon Secours has tripled its staff of providers – doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants – to 600, the group previously said. Sixty percent of those are primary care providers.

No financial details on the Bon Secours lease were provided.

OrthoVirginia has a presence at several local hospitals, including those run by both Bon Secours and HCA. It also has offices in Farmville and New Kent, among several others, according to its website.

Coor said OrthoVirginia built a large office building about three years ago in the Boulders office park and opened a new office in Prince George in December. It is also getting ready to fully renovate its current space at Johnston-Willis Hospital.

The company wants to own more of its offices and lease less space, Coor said. It’s financing the project through a combination of physician and bank funding.

“To own your own real estate makes a lot of sense,” she said.

Practice-wide, OrthoVirginia employs about 450 people, which includes 45 physicians, Coor said.

OrthoVirginia focuses on bone and muscle-related problems and treats patients with spine injuries, hip and knee replacements, hand surgery and various sports-related injuries, for example.

The healthcare industry is expanding rapidly in Mechanicsville. Hanover Emergency Center, a department of Henrico Doctors’ Hospital, opened in June.

And this spring, KidMed opened an after-hours urgent care facility for children and young adults on Bell Creek Road.

Richmond Pediatrics will move its current Mechanicsville office about three miles away in September to a new space just down the street from KidMed.
