Capital Digestive Care Partners with Colliers & Facility Logix to Expand its Clinical Laboratory Footprint to 21,000 Square Feet
New location will double Capital Digestive Care’s laboratory space in Silver Spring, Maryland
Silver Spring, MD, July 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Capital Digestive Care, the largest private gastroenterology practice in the Mid-Atlantic, has partnered with Colliers International and Facility Logix to relocate and expand its laboratory in Silver Spring, Maryland. The new, 21,000-square-foot space at 11921 Bournefield Way will be home to Capital Digestive Care’s state-of-the-art laboratory encompassing anatomic, clinical, and molecular diagnostic testing, serving the needs of patients throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
By expanding its in-house capabilities and scaling its facilities, Capital Digestive Care is able to enhance the continuum of care for patients, including faster delivery of results for more timely diagnoses for patients. The organization will also be better able to attract strategic partnerships focused on developing innovative and novel diagnostic tests customized for gastrointestinal (GI) care.
Capital Digestive Care worked with Colliers– a leading real estate services and investment management company–relying on the firm’s comprehensive market research capabilities and extensive market knowledge to find a location that would double its existing laboratory space, meet increased patient need, and accommodate future growth.
“The new laboratory located at WestTech Business Park is ideally situated near Capital Digestive Care’s corporate office, providing immediate accessibility to major interstates. The new location and upgraded facilities will enable Capital Digestive Care to attract and retain top talent and provide the best level of care for its patients,” said Colliers International Executive Vice President Adam Schindler.
Once the location was finalized, Facility Logix– a consulting firm that provides facility lifecycle solutions to the life sciences industry– stepped in to coordinate with management of the design, construction, and turnover team.
“We worked closely with the teams from Colliers, Capital Digestive Care, and building management to understand the technical complexities and compliance needs for this project to ensure all building systems would meet the necessary requirements for use as a state-of-the-art laboratory,” said Pat Larrabee, President of Facility Logix.
The project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2022. In addition, Capital Digestive Care will become a Roche Diagnostics Center of Excellence and will be expanding its clinical diagnostics testing.
Dr. Michael Weinstein, Capital Digestive Care’s President and CEO, noted, “We’re excited about this move and the expanded pathology and clinical laboratory services we’ll be able to offer in this new location. Both Colliers and Facility Logix have been instrumental in the success of this project, helping us find and develop the perfect space to fulfill our needs and enhance services to our patients and the community.”
