A growing health care provider has tapped R.J. Brunelli & Co. as its real estate representative in New Jersey, seeking to add locations around its base of Middlesex and Monmouth counties.
The seven-year-old practice, NJ Spine and Wellness, has a team of 45 medical professionals specializing in orthopedic surgery, sports medicine, pain management, chiropractic care, physical therapy, acupuncture and occupational therapy, according to a news release. With existing offices in East Brunswick, Freehold, Matawan and Old Bridge, the operator is now focused on continued growth in central New Jersey, according to the brokerage firm.
R.J. Brunelli Principal and CEO Ron DeLuca is managing the account. The practice will buy or lease 8,000- to 12,000-square-foot buildings in locations with high visibility and strong traffic, he said.
“Freestanding buildings are preferred, but we will also consider endcap locations in shopping centers,” DeLuca said. “In all cases, the sites must offer in excess of 50 parking spaces and be in close proximity to other medical facilities or physicians’ offices.”
In a news release, R.J. Brunelli noted that NJ Spine and Wellness provides care for conditions such as back pain, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, sciatica and spinal stenosis. The provider also diagnoses and treats knee injuries, shoulder injuries, sprains and strains, while performing epidural injections and steroid injections.
The practice’s surgeons specialize in minimally invasive spine surgery.
“Our vision is to offer patients a comprehensive care team that can provide exceptional care, along with effective communication, under one roof,” NJ Spine and Wellness CEO Nick Bufano said. “This is all designed to deliver on our underlying objective for our patients to ‘Get Better Faster.’”
