Dan Miranda, president of HSA Commercial Real Estate, and John Wilson, president of HSA PrimeCare, announced today that HSA PrimeCare has finalized development of the Hawthorn Surgery Center, a 15,200-square-foot state-of-the-art outpatient clinic to be occupied by Hawthorn Surgical Associates (“Hawthorn”), a subsidiary of Surgical Care Affiliates LLC. The newly-completed ambulatory care center located at 240 Center Drive in north suburban Vernon Hills, Ill. features three surgical suites, one procedure room, and 14 recovery stations.
“We are very excited about presenting our new Vernon Hills location to our patients in the coming weeks,” said Julie Bell, administrator at Hawthorn. “The final design and delivery of the building has really exceeded our expectations, especially given how smooth the construction process was for us.”
Hawthorn selected HSA PrimeCare, the national health care real estate division of Chicago-based HSA Commercial Real Estate, in 2012 as its development partner to plan, develop, and own the property. HSA PrimeCare also consulted with Hawthorn to estimate and allocate costs for the requisite Certificate of Need application and to coordinate with the village of Vernon Hills and neighboring land owners on an extensive re-platting process. HSA PrimeCare executed the project on a tight 7-month construction schedule in order to ensure a smooth transition from Hawthorn’s current facility in Libertyville, Ill.
“By every measure possible, the new Hawthorn Surgery Center in Vernon Hills will help the practice deliver on its goal of offering the highest-quality surgery experience in a neighborhood location that patients will find very comfortable and easily accessible,” said John Wilson. “We anticipate the practice and its patients to be very pleased with their new facility.”
