CareMore Medical Enterprises will open a huge medical facility at 4881 N. Stone Avenue by the end of the year in space vacated by Cost Plus, a “big box” style retailer.

The 18,229 square-foot facility at Northmall Center, on the southwest corner of River Road and Stone Avenue, will be Caremore’s fourth location in Tucson. The site is in a large retail center directly across the street from the Carondelet Heart & Vascular Institute, 4888 N. Stone Ave.   

CareMore Medical is a Cerritos, California-based chain specializes in senior health care and also offers personalized health planning and medical supervision.

In addition to Arizona, the medical group operates facilities in California, Nevada, New York and Virginia.

Nancy McClure, first vice president with CBRE who represented the landlord in the transaction, said that retail health clinics and urgent care facilities “are active tenants in the local market and across the country.”

“With the onset of the Affordable Care Act and more doctors moving from private to group practice, these facilities are opening in easy-to-find locations in order to provide consumers with convenient, accessible medical service. Plus, utilizing full-service clinics, like CareMore, will lessen the burden on hospital emergency rooms,” she said.

The building’s landlord is Brixmor Property Group of New York City. Caremore Medical was represented by Omar Dauod of Cresa in Newport Beach, Cal., in the transaction.
