  • Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL (1888PressRelease) February 25, 2015 - Developed by Optimal Outcomes, the Brandon Medical Pavilion is a 38,400 sq. ft. medical office building on a 3.27-acre parcel of land located at 403 S. Kings Drive in Brandon. The total project cost is estimated at $11,000,000 and slated for completion and occupancy in November 2015.

    The Brandon site affords excellent visibility, and also offers extensive parking, thereby addressing one of the primary challenges related to suitable functional medical space. The anchor tenant, Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute (FCS), is the largest independent medical oncology/hematology practice in the United States.

    There is consensus within the healthcare industry that there will be increased emphasis on outpatient care and delivery of services in ambulatory settings. Economic pressures, regulatory reform and patient demand are calling for higher quality care, greater convenience, improved efficiency and better cost controls. Optimal Outcomes believes that developments like this are key components to these endeavors.

    "The Brandon market has long been in need of additional and better inventory for healthcare providers. Patients and providers are demanding more convenient, functional, and modern space. As the healthcare industry places greater emphasis on a consumer-oriented delivery model, demand for higher quality and better-located facilities will intensify. To us, choosing a retail site for this project made perfect sense," says Andrew Boggini, Principal at Optimal Outcomes. "It was no surprise that FCS, a forward-thinking and proactive organization, recognized the benefits of being located in this facility. We believe this model will set the standard. FCS is the leading provider of cancer treatment in the Brandon area, and the investment they are making in this new facility clearly demonstrates their desire to provide the best and most convenient care for their patients."

    A ground breaking ceremony was held on Friday, December 5, 2014. The ceremony was attended by Stacy White, Hillsborough County Commissioner, Scott Rutz, Senior VP Northern Trust, Jim Graham, President of Graham Design Assoc. PA, Andrew Pavalis, Graham Design Architect, Greg Johnson, President of Precise Construction, Andy Boggini Principal, Optimal Outcomes, Sue Parker, Facilities Manager, FCS, Brad Prechtl, CEO FCS

    Shelly Glen VP Marketing & Sales for FCS, Dr. Magda Melchert, MD, Dr. Julio Lautersztain, MD, Dr. Shalin R. Shah, MD, Dr. Waide Weaver, MD, and Samantha Watkins, Regional Director of Operations for Florida Cancer Specialists.

    "Economic development is a top priority for Hillsborough. The county is pleased to know we will have many jobs to the Brandon area as a result of this project. Not only dozens of construction jobs over the next year, but healthcare jobs upon the completion of the project. Our citizens will have access to state-of-the-art hematology and oncology care, and Brandon will play an integral role in clinical trials. FCS has a history and track record of giving back to the community, and we are proud to have FCS as a partner and welcome them to Brandon", Stacy White, Hillsborough Country Commissioner.

    As the anchor tenant, Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute will occupy 22,377 sq. ft. FCS will utilize the space as a comprehensive cancer center, including medical oncology (chemotherapy) infusion, diagnostics, radiation therapy, doctor's offices, exam rooms, laboratory, and pharmacy. The building has been designed to include two vaults; one will house a linear accelerator and the other will house PET/CT and High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging equipment. This is the 4th cancer center that Optimal has developed for FCS.
