MBRE Healthcare, Newnan, Ga., broke ground last month for a new 113,000-square-foot medical office building (MOB) on the Piedmont Newnan Hospital campus. Slated to open in late 2020, the new, five-level MOB will be part of the full-service health campus.

The MOB will bring a full complement of Piedmont Healthcare and independent physician services to the southwest Atlanta Metro suburbs, including cardiology, cardiopulmonary rehab, general surgery, neurology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, physical therapy and occupational therapy. The MOB will also house administrative, human resources, and classroom space for Piedmont Healthcare.

The hospital and the site of the future MOB are visible from, and offer convenient access to U.S. Interstate 85 and Poplar Road, with parking in close proximity to the building. The project development team includes Earl Swensson Associates Inc. (ESa) architects and Batson-Cook Construction.
