NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Montecito Medical, a premier owner of medical office properties throughout the U.S., has acquired a Class-A medical office building in Lynchburg, Virginia, from OrthoVirginia, the state’s largest provider of orthopedic and therapy care.
Constructed in 2008, the facility was built-to-suit for OrthoVirginia, which occupies 100 percent of the nearly 88,000 square feet of space. OrthoVirginia is Lynchburg’s largest multidisciplinary musculoskeletal practice, with 20 physicians on staff. Through this location the practice provides a range of services, including general orthopedics, physical therapy, sports medicine and care for joint replacement patients. The building offers a prime location at 2405 Atherholt Road, less than a mile from Lynchburg General Hospital.
The Lynchburg acquisition builds on a relationship that Montecito has established with OrthoVirginia, which offers the services of more than 100 physicians spread across 22 locations in the state including 7 Ortho On Call locations.
“The team at OrthoVirginia have been great partner of ours, and we are excited to continue our relationship by adding another of their high-quality assets to our portfolio,” said Chip Conk, Chief Executive Officer of Montecito Medical Real Estate. “We acquired three of their buildings representing 152,000-square-feet late last year.
