State-of-the art MOB delivered in eight months.

Meridian acquired a vacant +/- 1.05-acre parcel of land in the San Dorado shopping center of Oro Valley, Arizona, to construct a single-story, 6,880 SF urgent care and primary care clinic for its client, Northwest Medical Center, a subsidiary of Community Health Systems. The facility aimed to serve the community of Oro Valley with convenient and affordable access to care.


Meridian was able to de-risk supply chain issues by taking appropriate risks on ordering long lead materials during design and permitting. Meridian also worked in concert with our partner and end user to program and design the facility to be in line with the other contemporary structures within San Dorado. The building elevations offer multi-dimensional planes, a variety of massings and canopy structures, and are articulated through the use of different colors, textures and materials. Variations in roof lines add visual interest, while keeping rooftop mechanical units fully concealed. A recessed main entry offers an inviting, covered environment, with landscaped features for plaza pedestrians and patients alike. Fenestration is incorporated judiciously to bath interior open areas in light while allowing privacy where needed for optimal patient care.


Built in 2023, the first-class medical office building was design, permitted, and constructed on budget and in record time, despite several supply chain issues and rising construction pricing. The building was delivered “turn-key” to our client with construction taking under eight months. This final result combines desert-hued stucco planes, mortar washed adobe slump block columns and pre-cast concrete details to create an energy efficient envelope. The main entry façade provides a curved parapet return and enriched paving at pedestrian nodes and around the building, expressing the San Dorado vernacular. Care has been taken to preserve as much existing vegetation as possible and new native Sonoran Desert species enhance the visual character and accentuate building entrances and amenities. The rent was fixed for our end user partner, and Meridian provided a construction completion guarantee on cost and schedule.
