Healthcare Trust of America, Inc. recently began construction on a 90,000-square-foot healthcare center and medical office building in Bakersfield, Calif. The three-story structure will be across the street from Bakersfield Memorial Hospital and will include two floors of physician offices and outpatient services including wellness, preventive, and basic medical care, diagnostics, and same-day treatment options. The facility will also serve as administrative offices for some Memorial Hospital departments.

Construction will be completed by S.C. Anderson, Inc., a full service general contractor specializing in general construction, lease-lease back, design/build, and construction management services. The project is expected to take a year and a half to complete.
