SANTA ROSA -- Sutter Medical Center of Santa Rosa  has secured two anchor tenants for its forthcoming 80,000 square foot medical office building, which will be adjacent to the new $284 million hospital being constructed in northern Santa Rosa.

The hospital's  real estate partner, Hammes Company, signed Santa Rosa Surgery Center and Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation as the main tenants, who will account for 58 percent of the building upon completion in 2014.

Some 50 or so staff and physicians from Santa Rosa Surgery Center will move from their existing location at 111 Sonoma Ave. in Santa Rosa, according to Lisa Amador, a spokeswoman for Sutter. Physicians with the Surgery Center have a joint-venture agreement with Sutter but are not part of the Medical Foundation.

The office building is located at Mark West Springs Road and U.S. Highway 101.

 "We expect to lease the remaining space fairly quickly, given its state-of-the-art, environmentally sustainable design which will qualify the facility for LEED  silver certification,” said Jim Kobayash, Hammes Company development manager.

Hammes Company, which is leading all development, leasing and financing initiatives for the medical office building, said it has received additional interest from both large users and several smaller potential tenants.

“When the new campus opens, it will provide quality and excellence in the provision of care through all private patient rooms, advanced imaging technology, electronic medical records and accessible outpatient services,” said Mike Purvis, chief administration officer for Sutter Santa Rosa.
