MedStar Health at Lafayette Centre rendering

WASHINGTON, DC — MedStar Health has signed a long-term lease agreement with Beacon Capital Part- ners, LLC , to develop a 112,000 s/f ambulatory care campus at Lafayette Centre, between 20th and 21st streets in northwest Washington, DC. Bob Gilbert, president of Med- Star Ambulatory Services, said, “Organizing care around patients’ needs, with respect for their busy work and life schedules, makes it easy and convenient to get care—and a lot less likely that someone will put off seeing a doctor or ignore symptoms altogether. Building facilities around the patient is a proven model for efficient, effective care, and MedStar is excited to be bring- ing this to Washington.” MedStar will occupy 92,000 s/f of the Lafayette Centre’s Building 2, which will be re- named the MedStar Health building. MedStar will have clinical treatment areas and offices on six floors and a dedicated lobby off 21st St. In addition, MedStar will lease 20,000 s/f of Building 1 on 20th St. This space will be redeveloped as a sports medi- cine center that will serve all levels of athletes and weekend warriors in the District and surrounding communities. The MedStar Surgery Cen- ter, which has served the community for more than 35 years at its 19th St. location, will also be relocated to the MedStar Health building, with state-of-the-art surgical capabilities. Primary care and specialty physicians currently

practicing nearby will relocate their offices to the center. “Our physicians look for- ward to working in a setting that brings together primary and specialty care, and a range of other clinical and diagnostic services,” said Andrew Lee, MD, regional primary care medical director for MedStar Medical Group. “This center will make clinical collabora- tion as seamless as possible, benefiting both the patients and the clinical team. It is a significant development in improving the way health care is being delivered today.” Services at MedStar Health at LafayetteCentrewill include: • Men’s health • Women’s health • Primary and preventive care • Heart and vascular care • Orthopaedics and sports medicine • Rehabilitation • Same-day surgery • Full-service medical imaging • Laboratory services • Other specialty services The new facility will have dedicated patient parking spaces in the Lafayette Centre garage. “One of the attrac- tive features of this location was its convenient access and parking, with a 533-car garage and two entrances off 20th and 21st streets,” said Gilbert. The location is also close to Metro’s Orange, Blue and Red lines. The center is expected to be operational in mid-2016. DTZ (formerly Cassidy Turley ), a commercial real estate ser- vices firm, has been selected to manage the renovation for Beacon Capital. n
