BRISTOL, Conn., and JUPITER, Fla., July 12, 2017 – The intersection of Main Street and Riverside Avenue in downtown Bristol will be the future home of Bristol Hospital’s 60,000-gross-square-foot Ambulatory Care Center (ACC).

After receiving proposals from developers around the country, Jupiter, Fla.-based Rendina Healthcare Real Estate was selected to be the hospital’s partner to develop and manage the facility.  The three-story ACC will be occupied by Bristol Hospital’s Multi-Specialty Group, offering a range of services including endocrinology, rheumatology, urology, cardiology, and a diabetic center.

The project will be part of an overall revitalization of downtown Bristol, a process Rendina has successfully navigated for other clients. Intended to fit seamlessly into the city’s vision for the new downtown, the ACC’s design marries retail and medical with an inviting brick and glass façade – leveraging natural light and creating a welcoming atmosphere that includes a café located in the two-story atrium.  Rendina expects to break ground in late 2017.

“Rendina has been outstanding to work with,” said Bristol Mayor Ken Cockayne while speaking at a news conference in Bristol. “This has been nothing but a positive experience.”

Richard Rendina, Chairman and CEO of Rendina Healthcare Real Estate, sees the project as a chance to build a lasting relationship with Bristol Hospital. “We are honored to have the opportunity to partner with Bristol Hospital and provide the community a modern healing facility,” said Rendina.  “The hospital collaborated with our design team to come up with something that’s not only patient-centered and efficient, but is true to the city’s vision for a new downtown Bristol.
