Integrating wellness services and increasing foot traffic on Rex ambulatory campus in Knightdale, NC.
In 2010, Rex Healthcare reengaged NexCore Group to build a fully integrated Wellness Center on its existing Knightdale ambulatory campus, which NexCore developed in 2009. The project called for creative financial solutions in the face of an economic recession. NexCore considered the needs of both Rex and its orthopedic partner, collaborating across the board to deliver a Wellness Center that grew the business, increased exposure, and delivered a positive experience for tenants and patients. Completed in 2012, the 34,000 SF Wellness Center is averaging 10,000 visits per month, and the business volumes of other outpatient services on campus have increased since the Wellness Center opened.
“Without NexCore sitting at the table with us ... without their creativity, lease rates, and TI dollars, the project never would have happened."
