Catalyst HRE Breaks Ground on New Medical Office Building in Hammond, Louisiana

January 10, 2019

Catalyst Healthcare Real Estate, one of the nation’s fastest-growing healthcare real estate firms, starts off the new year by breaking ground on what will be a two story, state-of-the-art, medical office and outpatient building for Cypress Pointe Hospital in Hammond, Louisiana.

 “Catalyst is excited to be working alongside the leadership of Cypress Pointe Hospital as we work together to create a wonderful new addition to their campus” said Chad Henderson, CEO of Catalyst. The 35,000 square foot MOB is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2019.

The new addition will be located immediately adjacent to Cypress Pointe Hospital which will provide connectivity between both buildings so that physicians can easily commute back and forth. Patients will be thrilled to find that the new building will be located directly off the interstate; conveniently accessible from I-12. Patients can also expect ample parking and covered patient drop-off / pick-up.

“As the Tangipahoa Parish area continues to grow and evolve, this new MOB will allow for additional access to the quality of care that Cypress Pointe is known for providing” noted Brandon McFarren, Catalyst’s Vice President of Development & Leasing. The area near the hospital is experiencing tremendous growth due to major construction; 100 new homes and 340 new apartment units are expected to be finished this year.

The mission of this project is to increase the functionality of the hospital. “Currently, doctors who work at our Surgical Hospital have offices throughout our community and market area.  The medical office building will give them a place on our campus where they can treat their patients in one central location” said Glenda Dobson, CEO of Cypress Pointe Hospital. “It will strategically benefit the hospital by providing physicians and patients a convenient all-encompassing medical complex with an Urgent Care and retail Pharmacy located on the first floor”.

Other specialty practices that will be offered in this location include Pain Management, Primary Care, and a rotating Timeshare. The limited opportunity to be affiliated with a hospital that is recognized as a top-performing healthcare organization and named 2018 Guardian of Excellence Award winner will be available to physicians seeking to lease part of the remaining space within the new MOB.

Catalyst is working directly with physicians to determine their specific needs and offering custom designed space provided by an architect proficient in medical design. “The customization of the space will allow physicians to take advantage of their medical office and focus their attention on the quality of their healthcare services” said Chad Henderson.
