Colliers International Pittsburgh brokers Edward Lawrence and Paul Horan assisted US Out Patient Surgery Facilities LLC (“USOSF”) in selecting the site of their new Washington, PA center.  USOSF is a company that develops and manages Ambulatory surgery and Office Based Surgery Facilities in partnership with its Surgeon owners.

The key objective was to locate a site within Washington for the expansion of the Jefferson Cardiology practice and the Greater Pittsburgh Surgery Center Surgery Center.  The location required it to be easily accessible, convenient for patients while providing highly visible signage and abundant amenities.

After analyzing the market, USOSF selected Park Place, located on Park Place Drive in Washington, PA.

“Park Place is a new, mixed-use development that includes retail, office and a residential component,” stated Lawrence, “It is easily accessible from Route 19 to provide convenience for patients coming from Washington, the Meadowlands or North Strabane.”

The 6,061 SF outpatient surgery center will open in July of 2020.

“Thanks to Colliers assistance, we are pleased to bring the first hybrid office / ASF to the market and most importantly bring Michael Brown MD back to the Washington community.  Dr. Brown joined the long established Cardiovascular practice of Jefferson Cardiology in 2019 and will bring advanced Endo Vascular and Cardiac skills to the community.” Keith Greenberg, General Manger.
