SAN RAMON, CALIF. — Meridian Property Company, a full service real estate developer and owner of medical real estate, is pleased to welcome its newest tenant, Petaluma Health Center, to the medical office building in Rohnert Park, Calif., located at 5900 State Farm Drive.

Petaluma Health Center will occupy the entire second floor of the medical building, joining existing tenant Kaiser Permanente and bringing the medical office space to 100% capacity. With the addition of Petaluma Health Center to the medical office building in Rohnert Park, Meridian COO John Pollock’s vision to attract future healthcare providers in the area and fulfill the “need for more medical service providers in the Rohnert Park market” is underway.

Large plate medical office buildings are a prime example of the kind of value-add properties that Meridian targets as part of the shifting demand in healthcare real estate market. Meridian has additional plans to upgrade the lobby and make an investment in further tenant improvements.

Petaluma Health Center’s Rohnert Park facility is expected to serve 5,000 patients in the first year with the potential of 15,000 in subsequent years. Services will include medical, dental, mental health, substance abuse, integrative medicine, pharmacy, optometry, and enrollment workers to assist uninsured individuals enroll in health insurance.

Over 5,000 existing patients of Petaluma Health Center currently live in Rohnert Park or Cotati and commute south to the center’s main campus on North McDowell. “Making services more accessible will lead to better health outcomes for our patients and the community,” says Petaluma Health Center’s CEO, Kathie Powell. Rohnert Park has one of the highest rates of individuals in Sonoma County who are eligible for publically subsidized health insurance but are not enrolled.

Scott Peterson of INDE Architecture will be designing the building. A General Contractor has not yet been announced. Petaluma Health Center has a target opening date of Spring 2015.
