Opening satellite medical office is not just for the large providers, it can benefit even smaller clinics or physicians’ offices. For starters, finding a second medical office for rent will introduce a new set of patients to your brand. Next, you may be able to use the second location as a jumping off point for an even more financially rewarding third office. How do you find the ideal second medical office that you can rent?
Choose a location in the heart of the area.
Avoid out-of-the-way places that do not allow for foot traffic or a clear line of sight from the street. Many professionals have had success with medical office space in strip malls and office buildings where there is not a lot of competition around.
Negotiate a build-out allowance.
You know from opening your first medical office what you will likely need to adjust to make the space suit your needs. Leverage this understanding as a negotiating tool with the new property owner or management company. Ideally, your build-out allowance should cover the majority – if not all – of your planned renovations.
Present your brand.
The color scheme, sign placement, and logo presentation at your satellite office should be identical to the one you already operate. Doing so ensures that patients build brand awareness. In the majority of cases, the signage does not create a problem. If you are unsure, work with a tenant representative who can help you verify zoning rules concerning sign placement.
Of course, the most important aspect is to find a medical office for rent that lets you do what you do best: taking care of patients. Because you do not have the time to devote to a search that might bring you across town multiple times a day, enlist the assistance of a representative who does the legwork.
