Lexington Medical Park – Otarre Pointe is the latest neighbor in the area, a growing corridor of economic potential and business development that includes SCANA, Amazon.com, Nephron Pharmaceuticals and the Saxe Gotha Industrial Park.

The two-story, 70,000 square foot facility will offer services for company and employee needs. There will be a Lexington Family Practice office, where patients can see a doctor, then return to work. As needed, there will be X-Ray and lab capabilities as well as other programs including physical and occupational therapy, and meeting space for wellness initiatives and trainings. Importantly, employees of the companies surrounding the new facility will be able to go there for their company-specific needs, including DOT physicals, pre-employment and annual OSHA physicals, work related injuries, drug screens and audio testing.

These architectural renderings show what Lexington Medical Park – Otarre Pointe will look like when complete this fall.

Lexington Medical Park – Otarre Pointe is expected to employ more than 60 full-time employees. The project also plans to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, employing advanced technology to conserve resources.
