HSA PrimeCare Again Recognized as a Healthcare Influencer by Real Estate Forum Magazine

In the November/December 2019 edition of Real Estate Forum Magazine (RE Forum), the publication recognized HSA PrimeCare in its national list of influencers in Health Care Real Estate. The article acknowledged the firm for growing into one of the largest developers and managers of healthcare facilities in the Midwest with a 2-million-square-foot portfolio throughout eight states. It also highlighted HSA PrimeCare’s recent development, the 40,000-square-foot medical office building on-campus at Silver Cross Hospital, which is scheduled for completion first quarter 2020. The facility will be located on Silver Cross Boulevard just west of the hospital, and it will house the hospital’s urgent care, primary care, and occupational health clinics.

In addition to the team’s Healthcare Influencer recognition, HSA PrimeCare SVP Jon Boley was featured in another article in the publication, entitled Healthcare Real Estate Developers Get Creative. In the feature, Boley addressed the growing investor interest in healthcare properties driven by a rapidly aging population with increased healthcare utilization as well as the overall stability of the sector.

“Healthcare has withstood recessions better than other asset classes,” says Boley. “In the 2008 recession, we found that our portfolio continued to perform. Even in a downturn, healthcare services are required and needed, and doctors will continue to see patients. It is an asset class that has withstood recessions. As a result, this late in the cycle, we see an increase in capital in the space.”

Boley also discussed how HSA PrimeCare has shifted its development strategy to accommodate changing patient and healthcare provider needs. The new Silver Cross Urgent Care Center that the firm is currently developing is a prime example of a project that lessens patient wait times while lowering provider costs by redirecting patients to an outpatient setting.

“The big opportunity now is health system, physician-driven build-to-suit properties,” says Boley. “The Silver Cross property is in an outpatient area of the hospital campus. While there is an emergency room on the campus, there was also a need for a place to appropriately direct patients coming into the emergency rooms but have lower acuity problems, like a fever.”

HSA PrimeCare Breaks Ground on 40,000 SF Medical Office Building on Silver Cross Hospital Campus in New Lenox, Ill.


HSA PrimeCare broke ground on a 40,000-square-foot medical office pavilion on Silver Cross Hospital’s campus in New Lenox, Ill., immediately west of the I-355/I-80 interchange. Scheduled for completion in December 2019, the state-of-the-art facility will house the hospital’s urgent care, occupational health and primary care clinics, among other medical tenants, and will be situated on the west side of campus on Silver Cross Boulevard, just south of the new Silver Oaks Behavioral Health Hospital.

“Silver Cross is very excited to offer urgent-care services on the hospital campus as a faster, easier alternative to the emergency room for the treatment of minor injuries and illnesses,” said Molly Brusca, administrative director of physician relations at Silver Cross Hospital.

Silver Cross Urgent Care will offer patients prompt care and treat myriad conditions — from the common cold and flu to infections, minor burns and allergic reactions. Patients will be treated by a licensed clinical practitioner and will enjoy convenient hours and easy access to other on-campus medical services. Housed in the same building, Silver Cross’ occupational health and primary care clinics will provide additional healthcare services.

“We are pleased to once again assist Silver Cross Hospital with the continued expansion of its hospital campus,” said John Wilson, president of HSA PrimeCare. “With the existing buildings approaching full capacity, it’s the ideal time to develop yet another cutting-edge facility that will give additional healthcare providers the opportunity to establish a presence on campus.”

HSA PrimeCare has a longstanding partnership with Silver Cross Hospital dating back to 2008, when the hospital first chose the firm to develop and manage the two-story, 53,000-square-foot medical office building primarily occupied by Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago physician offices, Silver Cross Center for Women’s Health, and Hinsdale Orthopedics. The hospital again selected HSA PrimeCare to develop the state-of-the-art University of Chicago Cancer Center at Silver Cross Hospital operated by Silver Cross Hospital and University of Chicago Medicine in 2011 and to expand the facility to 21,000 square feet in 2014. That year, the firm also developed Silver Cross’ 30,000-square-foot business center to house offices, hospital support departments, EMS training and IT for the hospital.

Strategically located at the confluence of I-355 and I-80 in growing New Lenox, Silver Cross Hospital is the premier location for healthcare delivery to Chicago’s southwest suburbs. Eppstein Uhen Architects is the architect for the new project, while PREMIER Design + Build is serving as general contractor.

HSA PrimeCare Recognized as a Healthcare Influencer by Real Estate Forum Magazine

In the December 2018 edition of Real Estate Forum Magazine (RE Forum), the publication recognized HSA PrimeCare in its national list of Influencers in Health Care Real Estate. The article acknowledged the firm for working with leading healthcare providers across the country to provide strategic real estate solutions in a sector that faces continuous change.

HSA PrimeCare president, John Wilson was highlighted for assembling a team of healthcare real estate experts and joining forces with HSA Commercial Real Estate to create the HSA PrimeCare division in 1995. More than two decades later, HSA PrimeCare continues to positively impact the sector by focusing on patient needs in the development and management of the firm’s growing portfolio totaling more than one million square feet. “It’s important to approach the brick-and-mortar as if you were a patient,” Wilson says. This patient-centered approach has contributed to HSA PrimeCare’s continued success in the healthcare real estate industry.

RE Forum also featured HSA PrimeCare’s recent development, the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Drexel Town Square Health Center in Oak Creek, Wisc., which opened to the public early this year. The 109,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility sits adjacent to walking paths at Emerald Preserve Park and offers a wide spectrum of services to provide an urban feel with elements of nature that encourage wellness.
