On January 22, Councilwoman Thelda Williams, The Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, City and community leaders, will join Phoenix-based orthopedic group The CORE Institute for its ribbon cutting and grand opening reception of its new national headquarters and its new North Phoenix Clinic at 5:30pm.
The new facility serves as The CORE Institute’s national headquarters as it continues to expand both locally and nationally, and includes a clinic with nearly 60 exam rooms and research center. CBRE completed the 69,251-square-foot 15-year lease of the Union Hills Corporate Center office building located at 18444 N. 25th Ave. in Phoenix last March. Construction of the facility upgrades were completed in December. The company hopes to add as many as 750 new employees across the country within the next 24 months and the new location will help facilitate that growth.
“We’re very pleased that The CORE Institute has committed to stay within our City and grow its national presence with Phoenix proudly listed as its national headquarters,” said Greg Stanton, Mayor of the City of Phoenix. “The CORE Institute is yet another example of the excellent business climate that Phoenix provides to companies as they grow both inside, and outside of Arizona.”
“We outgrew our existing 50,000-square-foot facilities but we knew that we wanted to keep our headquarters in Phoenix as we took the next steps to grow our company outside of Arizona,” said The CORE Institute Chairman and CEO David Jacofsky, MD. “The Union Hills Corporate Center facility allows us the flexibility to add staff as necessary as we expand and implement our Excellence through Evidence® platform across the nation.”
“The CORE Institute is excited we have reached this milestone of expansion,” said Arizona Market President, Dr. John Brown. “Combining the clinical expertise will allow us to create a Center of Excellence, helping us achieve our future vision of continued growth and better serving those in need of our orthopedic services.”
188 Employees working at The CORE Institute facilities in North Phoenix, Central Phoenix, Administration, Physical Therapy, and Research Lab have all moved into one Center of Excellence. A key factor in the building selection was that it allowed The CORE Institute room for expansion by taking additional square footage to add employees as it continues to grow.
Since The CORE Institute’s inception in 2005, it has expanded in Arizona from four providers to over 100 and cared for over 43,000 new patients in its Arizona clinics. Its growth has been built on a platform of evidence-based medicine and meticulous outcomes tracking managed by a proprietary IT platform. The CORE Institute has cared for hundreds of thousands of patients, from all 50 states and eight countries. The CORE Institute currently has locations Arizona and Michigan.
Union Hills Corporate Center is located at a full diamond interchange on the southeast corner of Interstate 17 and Union Hills Drive and one mile south of the Loop 101 freeway interchange. Its proximity to Interstate 17 and the Loop 101 offer tenants access to the Northwest Valley labor market and an abundant supply of amenities in the neighboring residential areas. Ashworth Construction, Inc., was selected by The CORE Institute to perform tenancy construction for the newly renovated facility with interior design work performed by Archicon.
