Tenet Healthcare Corp. is seeking the first round of approvals for a surgery center that it plans to build near Good Samaritan Hospital in West Palm Beach.
In January, the hospital company (NYSE: THC) said its ambulatory care services subsidiary, United Surgical Partners International, signed a joint venture with HSS to build an outpatient orthopedic care and surgery center near Good Samaritan. The parties didn’t disclose the size, design or exact location of the new facility at the time.
At an upcoming city meeting, the public can have a look at Tenet’s plans.
On Feb. 14, the city’s Plans and Plats Review Committee will consider the site plan for a four-story, 53,721-square-foot medical office building at 300 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd., directly south of Good Samaritan. 300 PBL Development LLC, an affiliate of United Surgical Partners International, acquired the 0.97-acre site for $5.5 million in July.
The property currently has a 46,310-square-foot apartment building that was constructed in 1970. It would be demolished to make way for the medical office building, which would be attached to a 142-space parking garage.
The project was designed by West Palm Beach-based architect Alfonso Hernandez in collaboration with Environments for Health Architecture. Hernandez couldn’t be reached for comment.
The design shows that HSS would have its signage on the building. HSS operates a hospital in Manhattan and more than a dozen outpatient centers in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. U.S. News & World Report has ranked Its hospital first in orthopedics for eight consecutive years, and third in rheumatology.
HSS physicians would staff the new center, which would provide diagnostic services, ambulatory surgery, rehabilitation and sports performance assistance.
