Rex Healthcare (a member of UNC Health Care) selected NexCore Group to develop and own an off-campus medical office building (MOB) in Knightdale, NC, a suburb of Raleigh located 10 miles east of the system’s 665-bed hospital. Rex purchased a site in Knightdale as part of their ambulatory network strategy to locate outpatient centers in growing suburban communities. Rex’s competitors include Duke Medicine and WakeMed, two large health systems with their own ambulatory networks.
The Rex Healthcare of Knightdale campus is located at the intersection of I-540 and US Highway 6. This high-traffic retail and residential location ensures excellent visibility for healthcare providers and convenience for patients. This aerial photo was taken in 2009 as Phase I of the campus (the 63,600 SF MOB) was under construction. Phase II of the campus (a 34,000 SF Wellness Center ) was completed in 2012.
The Rex Knightdale campus is located in close proximity to several retail centers and medical facilities — for example, The Shoppes at Midway Plantation, a 500,000 SF regional retail shopping center anchored by Target and Home Depot; Midtown Commons, a 200,000 SF shopping center, anchored by Best Buy, Dick’s Sporting Goods and PetSmart; and The Wellington Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center, a 100-bed facility.
NexCore provided comprehensive real estate services for the Knightdale MOB project including validation of the selected site, site master planning and entitlements, confirmation of the project-specific service area, compilation of project service area demographics, collaboration with Rex to determine service mix and physician complement, service line planning, preliminary estimate of project cost, physician recruitment and leasing, project ownership and financing, and property management.
Upon opening in 2009, the Rex Knightdale MOB offered family practice, pediatric, orthopedic, urgent care, wound care, surgery, sleep lab, on-site lab, imaging, and foot & ankle services. The MOB added wellness services to the mix in 2012.
Rex Urgent Care of Knightdale is open 7 days a week from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm. Since the Phase II Wellness Center opened on the campus in June 2012, Rex Urgent Care has seen 10-15% volume growth, and Rex Family Practice has experienced a significant and sustained growth of new patients.
The Rex Wound Healing Center of Knightdale is dedicated to providing comprehensive, outpatient clinical wound care and hyperbaric medicine. At any given time, nearly six million Americans suffer from chronic, non-healing wounds. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is an adjunctive treatment in which the patient breathes 100% pure oxygen while enclosed in a pressurized chamber at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure. This provides 15 to 20 times the normal amount of oxygen to the body's tissues.
