Atkins Cos. has completed its renovation of a 120,000-square-foot medical office building in West Orange that it built nearly four decades ago.
Located at 101 Old Short Hills Road, directly across the street from Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center, the structure now has updated lighting, flooring, fixtures and decor across its common areas and restrooms on the second, fourth and fifth floors, according to a news release. The real estate firm said it aimed to enhance patients’ and practitioners’ experience at the building, which is also adjacent to RWJBarnabas Health’s corporate offices.
The upgrades, which Atkins announced in January, have helped augment other features such as stretcher-accessible elevators, ample patient parking with an abundance of handicapped spaces, automatic doors, canopied entries for patient drop-off and a two-story lobby with granite flooring.
“Today’s health care practitioners and their patients expect and deserve an experience that moves beyond just providing four walls and a roof,” said Bob Atkins, principal of Atkins Cos. “Across our portfolio, we’ve emphasized ensuring our spaces and management continually exceed their expectations. These latest capital improvements at Atkins Kent 101 speak to that commitment and we are proud to deliver this space to all of those who enter the building.”
