TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Arizona Blood and Cancer Specialists have signed a new 12-year lease for a large new clinical space at Green Valley Village south of Tucson.
The new facility expands the company’s presence in the Green Valley market by providing them a significantly larger space with greater functionality. Green Valley Village, owned by Holualoa Companies, is one of the most prominent retail and medical centers in the area with a high-profile interchange location on I-19 and Esperanza Boulevard.
Arizona Blood and Cancer Specialists accesses the latest cancer research and treatment options to provide the best care for patients closer to their home. The practice employs a physician-led, data-driven, technology-powered, and patient-centric model designed to improve the lives of those living with cancer.
The 9,571-square-foot space was previously leased by a general merchandise retailer, and is an example of a larger trend of medical uses working into retail centers or more traditionally retail locations to improve patient access to care.
The practice had previously been located on Whitehouse Canyon Road to establish a presence in the Green Valley market prior to moving to Green Valley Village. The new, larger location includes a radiation vault, allowing radiological treatment.
“Every cancer patient deserves to have a highly skilled and experienced care team; one that can provide the most advanced technologies and treatments for cancer, close to home. They also deserve a care team that understands the personal side of cancer” said Bruce W. Porterfield, MD, PhD. “I’m extremely proud of our team and of our dedication to continually improving our patient’s experience and outcomes. It’s what sets us apart.”
Holualoa Companies specializes in the purchase and renovation of unique commercial and residential properties in locations across the country. It is a driving force behind a number of award-winning redevelopment projects in the region. The Tucson-based company is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year.
