Today's evolving health care system has presented a unique challenge in health care development. This challenge is to develop a strategic plan which focuses on a transition from the rapidly growing philosophy of "quantity" or "volume" based health care to a return to the philosophy of "quality" or "value" based health care.
The cause and effect of the increasing presence of a multiple hospital based care system in the Central Florida area has been undeniable and has resulted in a notable absence in the quantity of independent physicians. This absence has subsequently limited access within and independent health care network to a widespread patient population. From this need, the platform for Medical Villages was developed and launched in 2013 by Majors Investments, a Central Florida based company.
Medical Villages was developed as a way to increase access to health care for a rapidly growing patient base who carry a variety of health care needs. As this quickly evolving health care market continues to change, the level of access to health care changes. This change has dramatically affected the families who live within the Central Florida communities which, in turn, has created a demand to fulfill a need within the industry where independent practices are made more readily available. As a result, Medical Villages has created an all-inclusive approach to allowing patients who are seeking more variety and access to the health care that they require or prefer.
As Medical Villages worked diligently to address the needs of the patient base in Central Florida, it also began to recognize an obvious need that existed for Independent physicians as well as National Health Care organizations who were looking for ways to expand their practices and operate as entities who exist outside of the hospital based care that is so prevalent in the Central Florida area. The Medical Villages concept had now become a win-win philosophy that could meet the needs of both the patient and the independent physician.
Medical Villages has a strategic leasing philosophy where each of the Medical Villages is anchored by an independently owned and operated Family Practice. The surrounding tenants consist of a variety of specialists including but not limited to Pain Management, Pharmaceutical Services, Mental Health Counseling, Podiatry, Ophthalmology, Nephrology and Dialysis, Radiology, Weight Loss Clinics, Women's Health, and more! Together, the specialists and the Family Practice create a "one stop shop" experience for the patient as well as a built in referral network for each physician.
Medical Villages has a fully staffed and highly trained leasing team who work closely with each tenant from the beginning of the leasing process through the certificate of occupancy and move in day. Medical Villages understands that each specialist has different needs and strive to meet those needs in every possible way. The measure of success for the Medical Villages is directly reflective of each tenant's success.
There are many reasons an independent physician may choose to lease space with Medical Villages. The first is that this opportunity allows each tenant to become a part of a professional network which provides the independent physician with the support needed to grow and develop their business.
Another benefit to becoming a Medical Villages tenant is that each tenant receives an instant savings of up to $65.00 per square foot in tenant improvements. This benefit allows each suite to be customized and built to meet the provider's specific needs. Each tenant engages in multiple hands- on meetings with the Medical Villages in -house architect and actively participates in the design process. This provides each tenant with a sense of ownership in their designated suite.
Medical Villages also offers competitive prevention within the Medical Villages network. Each of the suites are strategically leased to prevent unfair conflicting services within the same network of independent practices. Knowing that each tenant's specialty is unique within the network allows each practice to flourish within the Medical Villages. Each tenant will enjoy a state of the art facility with cutting edge technology in a suite built to the highest of standards in quality. Medical Villages tenants may also enjoy a partnership advantage by taking advantage of preferred pricing for medical supplies, management services, billing assistance, recruiting assistance, and more!
Medical Villages aims to help independent physicians not only own and operate their own business, but also to expand their business to other areas. Currently, Medical Villages is operating and leasing in over ten locations throughout Central Florida including Palm Coast, Lake Nona, Maitland, Orlando, Kissimmee, Winter Haven, DeBary, Mount Dora, Leesburg, and Longwood. Each location is carefully hand selected and placed within growing communities consisting of large family populations and a diverse demographic area.
