Margulies Perruzzi Architects (MPA), of Boston, celebrated the groundbreaking of a new three-story, 36,000-square-foot medical office building in Holden, Massachusetts, for Oriol Health Care, a family-owned and operated healthcare organization in the Worcester, Massachusetts area, and its primary tenant Reliant Medical Group, a multi-specialty medical group formerly known as Fallon Clinic.
MPA designed the new base building for Oriol, and provided interior architecture and healthcare design services for Reliant’s 17,000-square-foot tenant fit-out.
Reliant Medical Group is an independent group of physicians with more than 250 doctors and 1,700 employees at over 20 practices throughout Central Massachusetts. Reliant is relocating its current facilities in Holden to a newly constructed patient care building on Oriol’s healthcare campus, located on the site of the former Holden District Hospital.
Built by Cutler Associates, an integrated design and construction management firm, the project is expected to be completed by early spring 2013.
The building, which will house Reliant as well as other healthcare providers, will complement Oriol’s other medical arts buildings and skilled nursing facility on the site.
An affiliate of Atrius Health, Reliant Medical Group will occupy 17,000 square feet of the new facility, offering a family medical practice, laboratory, pharmacy, radiology, OB/GYN services, and an optical center. The new Holden location will offer more space, services, and upgraded technology for patients, and provides additional space for growth.
Reliant established a Patient Advisory Council to involve patients in the design of the clinical setting.
