Baptist Health South Florida's Medical Office and ER Center Site In Pembroke Pines 760x320

Baptist Health South Florida intends to construct a free-standing emergency room and medical office next to Pembroke Pines’ Shops at Pembroke Gardens.

On January 25, the city’s Planning & Zoning Board will take a look at changing the Edison Pembroke development plan. It is about the 37-acre area between Pembroke Road and Pines Boulevard on the east side of Interstate 75.

Situated just to the south of the popular outdoor shopping center, Duke Realty first approved the land’s use for four residential complexes back in 2007. Of those office buildings, two have been built, one by Atlanta-based TPA Group following its acquisition of the land. TPA Group was given permission in 2021 to convert one of the 7.6-acre office buildings into 350 apartments.

Pembroke 2 Owners LLC, an affiliate of the TPA Group, now wishes to replace plans for a third office building with a project that will house Baptist Health South Florida, a Miami-based organization. It would have a free-standing emergency department and 70,000 square feet of business space spread across three stories.

The project was designed by Miami-based MSA Architects.

The 350-unit apartment project, which is still in the planning stages, along with 125 hotel rooms and an extra 35,000 square feet of offices, would all be permitted to TPA Group.

This site is situated between Memorial Hospital West and Memorial Hospital Miramar, two facilities run by Memorial Healthcare System. Baptist Health has been rapidly growing its outpatient, urgent care, and free-standing emergency department (ED) services in Broward despite not having a major hospital there.

Memorial Cancer Institute On The Campus Of Memorial Hospital West in Pembroke Pines_Photo Credit SunSentinel 760x320

Memorial Healthcare System on Wednesday unveiled its $125 million free-standing cancer center stocked with the newest technology and designed for collaboration among specialists.

Whether a patient needs chemotherapy, radiation, a wig-fitting or simply just wants to buy products that are chemical-free they can do that all within an expansive four-story building in Pembroke Pines. The building at Flamingo Road and Pines Boulevard is created with big windows to optimize sunlight, and most treatment rooms face a rooftop garden or the nearby CB Smith Park..

The South Broward health system bought the former site of Toys R Us in 2018 to create the new Memorial Cancer Institute, which will bring outpatient cancer services housed in various buildings at Memorial Hospital West into a single location.

Until now, the radiation department at Memorial West had to alternate the days it offered radiotherapy or procedures with the Cyber Knife used to treat prostate cancer and brain tumors. Now, with more space in the new building, both will operate at the same time.

The building will open for its first patients in January. Memorial Cancer Institute will continue to operate satellite offices at Memorial Regional in Hollywood, Hallandale Beach and Miramar.

meso parcel 760x320

Medical technology firm Meso Scale Diagnostics paid $18.9 million for a development site in Palm Beach Gardens that was previously approved for a hospital.

An affiliate of Rockville, Maryland-based Meso Scale acquired the 9.1-acre assemblage at the southwest corner of PGA Boulevard and Ballenisles Boulevard, just east of Florida’s Turnpike, according to records and Vizzda.

The buyer obtained $18.2 million in seller financing.

The seller, an entity managed by John Clark Bills in Palm Beach Gardens, paid $996,300 for the vacant land in 2009, records show.

In 2021, Palm Beach Gardens approved a rezoning of the larger 7.2-acre parcel from residential to commercial. It also approved a site plan for two medical rehabilitation buildings with 80 beds, submitted by Encompass Health, a Birmingham, Alabama-based health care company. At the time, Encompass was under contract for the development site.

It is unclear why Bills and Encompass did not close the deal.

Meso Scale executives did not respond to emails requesting comment about the company’s plans for the vacant property. Led by CEO Jacob Wohlstadter, Meso Scale develops, manufactures, and markets instruments and materials for biological research and life sciences, according to the firm’s website.

Medical building development and sales in South Florida are seeing an uptick. Last month, Memorial Healthcare System paid $49 million for 8.2 acres in Hollywood. Memorial plans to redevelop a two-story grocery store and a 156,000-square-foot retail building on the property into a possible health and wellness center.

In January, Boyd Watterson Asset Management acquired a Veterans Affairs clinic in Sunrise for $38.2 million. The 111,000-square-foot outpatient clinic provides military veterans with primary care, cardiology, dental, mental health, neurology, orthopedics and women’s health services, according to its website.

In December, ABS National Business Parks paid $38 million for a Palm Beach Gardens two-building complex that includes medical offices. The joint venture bought Corporate Center at the Gardens at 4200-4400 Northcorp Parkway.

Memorial Healthcare System paid $49 million for the shuttered Hollywood Fashion Center mall, property records show.

The 8-acre property houses the 155,880-square-foot shopping center, which was constructed in 1971 and closed in 1993. Today, the building is home to Gordon Food Service Store, a food distribution center and grocery store. Located at 101 South State Road 7, the site sits adjacent to Hollywood Boulevard, surrounded by big-box stores such as Aldi and Walmart.

Memorial Healthcare System, a nonprofit hospital system, is looking to redevelop the property into “a wellness hub” but has yet to make a final decision and construction is at least two years away, according to a statement from the hospital.

Brothers ShlomiIzac and Lior Ben-Shmuel, bought the Hollywood property last year for $7 million with each owning a third, according to property records.

Jason Tobin and Louis Granteed of Tobin Real Estate represented Memorial Healthcare System in the transaction.
