Bradford Allen Arranges Five Medical Office Leases in Bolingbrook

CHICAGO –  Bradford Allen Realty Services announced today that Adventist Health Partners has leased 10,000 square feet of medical office space at the Bolingbrook Medical Center at 396 Remington in Bolingbrook.

Bradford Allen’s Medical Practice Group Senior Managing Director Joel Berger and Director John Millner represented the building ownership, Partners Health Trust, in lease negotiations.

Since January, the physician group has signed five leases at the Class A medical office building. Built in 2008, the 73,544-square-foot building sits on the Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital campus and provides doctors and patients immediate access to hospital’s full range of health care services.

Adventist Health Partners five leases are made up of:

  • Midwest Bone and Joint – 3,530 square foot renewal and expansion
  • Two (2) physician timeshares – 3,000 square foot new lease
  • Physical Therapists Solutions – 2,141 square foot new lease and expansion
  • Advanced Renal Care – 1,300 square foot new lease

 

“As a result of the changing landscape in healthcare, many of the physician practice groups that were once independent are now employed by Adventist Health Partners.” said Millner. “As Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital becomes more active, we are seeing their physician group bringing more specialists to the on-campus facility, driving more traffic through the hospital.”

 

Millner also noted that the timeshare suites have been extremely important for Adventist, allowing doctors to utilize the hospital without the commitment of a full-time office.
