The threat of Hurricane Florence may have quelled plans for a ribbon-cutting ceremony, but it didn’t prevent a local health care giant’s new Short Pump facility from opening for business last week.
Nearly four years in the making, Bon Secours is now up and running in its Short Pump Medical Plaza and Emergency Center at 12320 W. Broad St. in the nearly built-out Broad Hill Centre mixed-use development.
The new two-story, 50,000-square-foot facility is home to a 12-bed emergency department, primary care and a community wellness center. There also are outpatient imaging services, to include MRI, CT scans, ultrasounds, X-rays, and 3-D mammography.
The building was constructed on part of 20 acres Bon Secours purchased from Broad Hill Centre developer Atack Properties in 2014 for $6.92 million.
The project’s architect was Odell & Associates. WM Jordan was the general contractor, with a $14 million construction contract.
Bon Secours did not disclose the full development costs.
As for Bon Secours’ remaining acreage at Broad Hill, Caroline Entzminger, a project manager with Odell, said there’s a possibility for a second, taller facility elsewhere on the plot.
Broad Hill Centre currently houses an Aldi, a CVS Pharmacy and the medical center, along with nearly completed condominiums and townhomes in StyleCraft Homes’ Saunders Station.
“Saunders Station Townes will have a total of 78 three-story and four-story homes,” said Rick Melchior, vice president of development at Atack. “We anticipate completion of all of the townhomes in early 2020.”
