Joseph Simone of Simone Development Companies says medical real estate developers should choose locations that are accessible to a wide range of income levels to promote healthcare inclusion.
“The site location process should consider accessibility for low-income people, as well as people with disabilities who rely on public transport. Proximity to transit stations and bus routes is key to creating an inclusive healthcare industry,” said Joe Simone, president of Simone Development Companies.
Transit-dependent consumers will increasingly benefit from health care options as the Metro-North Railroad opens new stations in the Bronx. Simone Development Companies’ Hutchinson Metro Center sits next to a future Metro-North station at Morris Park which will provide easy access from the Hell Gate and New Haven train lines.
Some of the neighborhoods near future train stations have large populations of medically underserved communities. According to a New York City community health profile, the neighborhood surrounding the future Hunts Point Metro-North station ranks first in New York for adults forgoing necessary medical care.
The Hutchinson Metro Center’s 42-acre campus is anchored by the 11-story, 280,000-square-foot Montefiore Hospital Ambulatory Care Center. The patient-focused and highly streamlined facility offers more than two dozen adult and pediatric medical specialties, including cardiology, urology, and diabetes.
“The Hutchinson Metro Center helps ensure equity in health care in the Bronx and surrounding communities. Simone Development Companies will continue to develop this campus to optimally meet the healthcare needs of all Bronx residents,” said Patricia Simone, director and president of Simone Management Group.
