Baptist Health Care Partners with Catalyst for Development of Medical Office Building on New Campus


Baptist Health Care (BHC) is pleased to announce that Catalyst Healthcare Real Estate (Catalyst), a full-service health care real estate investment firm, is developing an 80,000-square-foot medical office building (MOB) on the new Baptist Hospital campus under construction at the intersection of Brent Lane and I-110 in Pensacola.

The MOB is adjacent to the new 10-story, 264-bed Baptist Hospital and the six-story Bear Family Foundation Health Center. The location was strategically chosen to provide patients with connectivity and convenient access to all the services on the 57-acre campus. Construction is expected to be completed in fall of 2023.

“As we continue to transform health care delivery in our community, we are very pleased with this development,” said Brett Aldridge, senior vice president of strategy and business development, Baptist Health Care, and administrator, Baptist Hospital. “The second medical office building will complement our robust presence at the Brent Lane location to further support our efforts to improve access to care and improve the health of our community.”

The MOB is aligned with Baptist’s goal to advance health care access, patient experience and outcomes for the community. Catalyst leaders say they are excited to expand its reach in the Pensacola area and build on its relationship with Baptist Health Care.

"Catalyst significantly values our long-standing relationship with Baptist. We are proud to be part of such a transformational project and are excited about the positive impact it will have on our community," said Chad Henderson, founder and CEO of Catalyst. "We look forward to expanding on our partnership with Baptist Health Care and the opportunities that lay ahead."

The MOB will offer health care professionals the opportunity to lease and custom design medical offices and clinical spaces. Physicians who lease space within the MOB will benefit from the location’s excellent visibility and convenient access, free parking with covered drop-off and pickup areas, and much more. Those interested in leasing opportunities should contact Brandon McFarren at Catalyst at or 850.607.6069, ext.106.
