Some of the awards under Rendina’s belt are:
- Best Renovated or Repurposed Healthcare Facility award -2016
- Best New Medical Office Building or Other Outpatient Facilities of Less than 25,000 Square Feet-2015
You might wonder, what exactly does Rendina do to clinch such awards? One example is the exemplary work that scooped them the 2016 award. Rendina took 3 MOBs (Medical Office Buildings) located on the campus of Clara Maass Medical Center (CMMC), New Jersey. CMMC asked Rendina for a solution to avail capital for the hospital, improve overall physician and patient satisfaction, and enhance the community and campus.
After buying the MOBs from CMMC, Rendina went ahead to transform the old facilities to modern healing centers by renovating the common areas including the ceiling tiles, flooring, lighting, and paint, along with new entry systems and signage. Additional interior improvements comprised directories for improved wayfinding, furniture, and artwork all aimed at improving the patients’ experience. Rendina also replaced the roof, modernized the elevator cab, installed new HVAC, and put up new ramps.
Since taking ownership of the medical office buildings, occupancy has increased in leaps and bounds. In a 2015 Kingsley Associates survey, there was a 7% increase in tenants who gave an “overall satisfaction” rating.
