Construction is underway on a nearly 72,000 square foot medical office building (MOB) in Florence, Ala.

Developed by RCCH Healthcare Partners and Rendina Healthcare Real Estate, the medical facility will be attached to the new North Alabama Medical Center (NAMC) Hospital and will house complementary services.

North Alabama Bone & Joint Clinic's orthopaedic surgeons, rehabilitation specialists and physical therapists will offer services including adult reconstructive surgery, sports medicine, hand and foot surgery, pediatrics, and fracture care.

NAMC lab and imaging functions will also be in the MOB, along with obstetrics, gynecology, and cardiology physician offices.

Rendina anticipates that the MOB opening will coincide with completion of the new hospital in late 2018.
