Florida Cancer Specialists (“FCS”) was seeking a solution to the challenges associated with managing three smaller and aging offices in the Tampa market. After completing a facility review and functional needs analysis, it was evident that in keeping with industry best practices, FCS needed to centralize operations and bring the entire continuum of cancer care under a single roof.
Optimal Outcomes acquired a site that was central to the existing FCS offices, near St. Joseph’s Hospital. The site provides excellent visibility and access for patients and staff. Optimal designed the space as a Class-A, two-story, 36,000 square foot cancer treatment center which includes medical oncology, molecular diagnostic laboratory, hematological pathology, imaging, radiation therapy and research facilities. In addition to the wide array of clinical services, the facility offers patients a relaxing decor and environment with amenities such as wireless access, computers, LCD televisions, educational areas, classes and counseling.
Through a unique ownership model Optimal Outcomes provided FCS an option to participate in the ownership of the real estate upon completion of construction. The model appropriately places the risk and responsibility for acquisition, development, construction and long-term operation of the property with Optimal, while providing FCS with the benefits of real estate ownership.
