Nashville, TN, December 23, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics board selected Balfour Resource Group to assist in coordinating the move and transition of more than 15 clinical departments from their current location on the main campus to the new Iowa River Landing Ambulatory Care Clinic Facility.
“We are pleased to continue to serve the University of Iowa in their mission to make a difference in quality of life and health for Iowans and others,” said Edward Hernandez, Senior Vice President of Balfour Resource Group.
Currently, BRG is providing medical equipment planning at the Iowa River Landing location and with this new contract will continue to assist the staff and administrators in their goal to open and receive patients in August 2012. The new ambulatory care clinic will be approximately 167,000 square feet in Coralville, Iowa, and the design of the building is flexible, allowing for adaptation as needs of healthcare services change and grow.
The new Iowa River Landing facility will help mitigate congestion and parking at the main hospital. The University of Iowa’s plan is to move multiple programs and administrative functions to this off campus location making room for on-campus growth and facility upgrades.
