JLL Tapped as Project Manager for Orange Regional Medical Center Expansion

Firm’s Project and Development Services group oversees construction of new Physician’s Office Building; expansion, renovation of cancer center

NEW YORK, July 14, 2015 — JLL was tapped as project manager by Orange Regional Medical Center to oversee the design and construction of its new 152,770-square-foot Physician’s Office Building, located at 707 East Main Street in Middletown, N.Y. The hospital will consolidate most of its outpatient services into the new facility. The project also involves the expansion and renovation of the hospital's cancer center.

The Project and Development Services team overseeing the project is led by Vincent Knoll, project executive and managing director with JLL’s healthcare practice; Samuel Paglianite, vice president; Jack Tenanty, managing director; and Hilary Thomas, senior vice president. The team is working closely with Stephen Sugrue, vice president of compliance, real estate and audit, with Orange Regional Medical Center.

“Orange Regional Medical Center turned to JLL to assist with the creation of a modern, outpatient care facility that would greatly improve the healthcare experience for the surrounding community,” said Knoll. “The center was currently providing outpatient care out of three off-site leased locations. We were also tasked with building a state-of-the-art medical office building for the physicians employed by the hospital. Our team is working closely with hospital executives to ensure all aspects of the project are completed in an efficient and cost-effective manner.”

The commencement of the expansion project was memorialized by a groundbreaking ceremony led by Scott Batulis, CEO of Orange Regional Medical Center, on June 24, 2015. The expansion effort includes a 152,770-square foot, five-story Physician’s Office Building that will house diagnostic imaging technology; an ambulatory surgery facility; a primary care/urgent care facility; tomosynthesis, or 3-D mammography; a women’s center; a multi-discipline specialty care area; classrooms; a retail pharmacy; and laboratory services. JLL will also supervise the construction of a single-story, 26,000-square-foot cancer center with state-of-the-art technology that includes two radiation therapy linear accelerators.

As part of the effort, JLL has managed the project from conceptual design through approvals from authorities having jurisdiction for the campus expansion, and will continue oversight through final occupancy and operations. The project also involved creating an expanded parking and logistics plan, and enlarging the main entrance to the hospital to improve traffic circulation.

JLL has a longstanding relationship with Orange Regional Medical Center, having served as project manager for the construction of a 621,000-square-foot, $271 million hospital that was completed in 2008. The facility was the first new replacement hospital built in the state of New York in the past 20 years and the first hospital constructed in the state using the design-build process, which combines design, permit and construction schedules to reduce costs and completion time as compared to traditional modern construction contract methods. JLL’s PDS executives managed a team of planning, design and construction professionals who worked together to complete their tasks simultaneously.

The 383-bed replacement hospital was designed to be more efficient and to better serve the more than 390,000 people that live in the surrounding communities. The facility was constructed on a vacant 63-acre site on East Main Street near the Route 17 and I-84 interchange. It features a state-of-the-art, patient-centered hospital with approximately 1,700 parking spaces, all private patient rooms, an emergency department with 50 treatment bays for varying levels of emergencies, spacious operating suites, and wireless infrastructure to accommodate the latest digital healthcare technology.

Orange Regional Medical Center was created in 2001 following the merger of Arden Hill Hospital and Horton Medical Center. On August 5, 2011, the organization consolidated both hospital campuses into its new state-of-the-art facility. Orange Regional Medical Center plans to sell its two older facilities to fund a portion of the construction costs of the new hospital.
