Healthcare Partners Investments LLC is building a $20-million, 80,000 square-foot medical building and has plans to build an inpatient hospital just northeast of Broadway Extension and Britton Road — an area rapidly developing into the metro's newest medical corridor.
The two-story building will house an ambulatory surgery center and imaging center for HPI, just north of McBride Orthopedic Hospital on Broadway Extension. The second floor of the building will be leased medical offices, including the Oklahoma Sports Science & Orthopedics group.
A second, $10-million phase of the project includes plans for HPI to build a new 60,000 square-foot inpatient hospital on the site with 20 to 25 hospital beds in a move that would consolidate its other hospital beds in the city, including Northwest Surgical Hospital at N May and Britton Road.
Developer Randy Hogan, whose company Stonegate Hogan is developing the HPI building, said he believes the area has the potential to become a “regional hub” for orthopedics and other health care needs.
“Overall, Broadway and Britton Road has so much growth potential,” Hogan said. “We already have some solid medical concentration in the area and HPI will only add to that.”
The HPI development is part of a master plan for the Broadway Mediplex. The roughly seven acres that HPI eventually will inhabit is in addition to another 10 acres on the site just to the east that Hogan believes could host other medical-related uses.
The new HPI building will combine some of its services offered elsewhere across the city, said Ed Gray, president and CEO of HPI, a physician-owned health care company that operates several surgical hospitals, imaging centers and physician practices in the metro area, including Community Hospital.
“Our goal in doing all of this is to have a positive experience for our patients,” Gray said.
Although HPI is not partnering with neighboring McBride, Gray said he hopes the two facilities will create a “collaborative” relationship.
“If you need orthopedic care, this is the area where you will come,” he said.
McBride Orthopedic Hospital built its 80-bed facility at Broadway Extension and Britton Road in 2005, and added a $2 million operating room in 2010.
Diagnostic Lab of Oklahoma also opened a 70,000 square-foot, $20-million clinical lab and corporate headquarters behind McBride in 2011 at 325 NE 97.
Saints Medical Group opened its 9,000 square-foot Dermatology Center of Excellence on the northeast side of Britton Road and North Broadway Extension in late 2012. That business focuses on skin cancer, cosmetic and other dermatologic treatments.
