Willow Valley Business & Medical Center to add the Lancaster VA Community Clinic

Willow Valley Associates announced that the Lebanon Veterans Administration Medical Center leased 15,000-square-feet at 212 Willow Lakes Drive, Willow Street, PA.  This location will allow the VA to double the size of their Lancaster Community-Based Outpatient Clinic.

“The Willow Valley location will provide veterans with easy access to a variety of specialty medical services which the VA said was an important criteria in selecting a new location,” said Rick Poillon of Willow Valley, “we believe it will be a great location as Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health, UPMC Pinnacle, Orthopedic Associates of Lancaster and numerous other medical providers are already located at the Willow Valley Lakes Business & Medical Center.”

ROCK Commercial Real Estate represented Willow Valley in the transaction. “ROCK’s research team provided analytics that indicated the VA’s relocation to Willow Valley would reduce the cannibalization of their other two locations and further expand their reach into southern Lancaster”, said ROCK Brokerage Advisor Kevin Hodge.

The new clinic located on Route 222 (Beaver Valley Pike) in Willow Street will also be accessible by Lancaster’s Red Rose Transit which makes stops to the Center multiple times daily.  The VA said that it will be offering primary care and telehealth services, including mental and behavioral health, laboratory, physical therapy, women’s health and optometry.

The Lancaster Community-Based Outpatient Clinic’s opening is anticipated for the fall of 2018.
