The Optum Health Center Building is a true class-A, state-of-the-art medical office building that has a high quality, synergistic mix of tenants, including a primary care clinic, a cardiologist, an imaging practice, a laboratory, and a clinical research firm containing a surgical center.
Being at the intersection of two major freeways, minutes away from a major power center, regional malls, a handful of large master-planned communities and the John C. Lincoln Deer Valley Hospital, has resulted in a near 100% occupancy of the Optum Health Center Building.
Developed in 2008 using steel frame construction system and finished with EIFS, window glazing and gurney accommodating oversized elevators, the Optum Health Center is ideally located at the intersection of two major freeways – Interstate 17 and the Loop 101 – both of which service the Northwest Valley, which is characterized by dense residential and commercial development. A handful of large master-planned communities illustrate the strategic locational advantage of the Optum Health Center.
The Optum Health Center is approximately a quarter mile from Deer Valley Towne Center, a 525,000 square foot class-A power center anchored by AMC Theatres, Target, OfficeMax and Petsmart. Further, two regional malls, Arrowhead Towne Center and Metrocenter Mall, are located along the two different freeways serving the Optum Health Center building and are both 10 minutes away by car.
Two of the Valley’s major sports teams operate in facilities located along the 101 Loop Freeway, to the southwest of Optum Health Center. Jobing.com Arena is home to the Phoenix Coyotes hockey team and is located in Westgate City Center (a 6.5 million square foot mixed-use development). In addition to hockey, several concerts and sporting events are hosted at Jobing.com Arena. The University of Phoenix Stadium, home to the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals, is located adjacent and to the hockey arena. Both of these facilities were recently constructed and are amongst the highest quality in the nation.
Physicians and other health care service practices are particularly seeking synergistic relationships with local hospitals and opting for freeway locations in the immediate vicinity of a hospital or freeway locations proximate to multiple hospitals, which makes the Optum Health Center extremely attractive, and has resulted in a near 100% occupancy.
Just a quarter mile away from the Optum Health Center building is the John C. Lincoln Deer Valley Hospital, the flagship hospital in the John C. Lincoln network. The John C. Lincoln Health Network is an acclaimed health system that includes two hospitals, physician practices, community outreach programs and the John C. Lincoln Health Foundation. John C. Lincoln has served North Phoenix for over 80 years and includes more than 3,500 employees and a medical staff of more than 1,100 physicians.
The John C. Lincoln Deer Valley Hospital is a 204-bed, not-for-profit community hospital that features all private rooms. It was named the only hospital in Arizona to receive a Premier QUEST Award for High Value Healthcare and was presented with the Arizona Pioneer Award for Quality by the Arizona State Quality Alliance in 2009.
Through the implementation and expansion of a physician employed model, the hospital has succeeded in capturing significant market share. Along with practices it has already acquired, several private medical practices have selected John C. Lincoln to sell to in order to position them as an Accountable Care Organization eligible for participation in the federal reimbursement model under the Healthcare Reform Act.
The campus enjoys a tremendous in-fill location at the intersection of two major freeways, Interstate 17 and the 101 Loop Freeway. The hospital serves the dense and well diversified populations that surround it in all directions. Upscale decision-maker housing lies both to the northwest and southeast in Arrowhead Ranch, North Central and other communities. A younger demographic, or starter housing, is prominent to the west and southwest. Vast retirement housing, such as Sun City, is located to the west. Lastly, one of the Valley’s largest labor pools exists in the areas to the southwest and southeast.
