Project Description

The NMTC project involves the construction of a 30,000-square foot, stand-alone medical office building and ambulatory care center on the southeast corner of the Blue Ridge Regional Hospital (“BRRH” or “Hospital”) campus located in Spruce Pine, North Carolina. The new facility allows BRRH to lower wait times, better serve the acute needs of the community, provide a lower cost alternative for ambulatory and routine primary care, and serve as a recruiting tool for primary care physicians and specialists. The Hospital is a major employer in the area with 380 employees, and the new project adds 46 new jobs. The facility is owned by a joint venture between The Keith Corporation, the developer and Blue Ridge Regional Hospital. This joint-venture relationship enables a master-lease structure that is anticipated to support the growth of the regional healthcare provider and the extension of services to over 14,250 low-income persons annually.
