Patti Gentry Appointed to St. Joe's Community Board

Patti Gentry, principal and designated broker of Arizona Commercial Advisors, has been appointed to the St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center Community Board.

According to Gentry, it is a passion for quality healthcare that drives her to volunteer her time for St. Joseph’s.

“I have two sisters who both required high-quality healthcare, so I have two very personal reasons to be involved,” Gentry said. “In addition, I want to support the operations of a hospital that is focused on meeting the needs of our community, particularly in today’s difficult healthcare environment.”

St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center is a nationally recognized center for quality tertiary care, medical education and research. Located downtown, in the heart of Phoenix, the 607-bed, not-for-profit hospital provides a wide range of health, social and support services, with special advocacy for the poor and underserved.

Arizona Commercial Advisors is the only woman-owned, full-service commercial real estate firm in the Valley. Based in Scottsdale,  the unique boutique firm was created in 2009 by Gentry, who specializes in the office market, offering services that include tenant lease representation, office building acquisition, lease or disposition, and build-to-suit opportunities.

CBRE, Az Commercial Advisors Help Scottsdale Healthcare Secure New HQ


McCormick Place, a vacant, 74,474 SF, 3-story office building at 8125 N. Hayden Road in Scottsdale, sold for $14.95M in a deal handled by CBRE.

Scottsdale Healthcare Corporation, a nonprofit health system, has acquired the building, which will become its new corporate headquarters.

Luke Walker and David Carder of CBRE’s Phoenix office, along with Patti Gentry of Arizona Commercial Advisors of Scottsdale, represented the buyer in the acquisition. The seller, a real estate investment company based in northern California, was represented by Jerry Noble, Pat Devine and Greg Mayer, also in CBRE’s Phoenix office.

“Scottsdale Healthcare was seeking a centralized location for its corporate office in order to maximize resources and better support each of its hospital campuses,” Walker said. “McCormick Place will provide it with the necessary space to relocate its corporate and other business office functions, while creating flexibility for future enhanced patient services on its Osborn campus.”

Gentry added: “From a business perspective this location will strengthen Scottsdale Healthcare’s footprint in the City of Scottsdale by establishing a major corporate headquarters in the center of the city, and the timing of this transaction will allow the company to benefit from a cost perspective as well.”

Until 2008, the building served as the corporate headquarters for Medicis Pharmaceutical Corporation. It is located on the NEC of Hayden Rd. and Via de Ventura, central to all three Scottsdale Healthcare hospital campuses. The property is also less than one mile from the Loop 101 and in proximity to numerous upscale retail amenities, including the Villages on Hayden and The Shops at Gainey Village.

Also included in the sale was an adjacent, free-standing, covered parking garage.

Scottsdale Healthcare plans to move into its new corporate headquarters in 2013.
