WICHITA — For the second time in less than a year, Medical Development Management is moving. It'll be a much shorter trip this time around, though.
In July, the company moved from Kellogg and Rock Road to about 2,500 square feet at the O.W. Garvey Building at 200 W. Douglas.
MDM had an option to take some extra space for a total of 4,500 square feet. Instead, though, it's now going to move next door into the 6,500 square feet that Cases, Moses & Zimmerman currently occupies.
"It made more sense to do that," says MDM president Joe Hlavacek.
"We were willing to work with them in allowing them to continue to grow," says attorney David Moses. "It also affords us an opportunity to look at all of our alternatives."
Hlavacek says there are several ways the company is growing.
"Right now ... the project that's causing us to need more space is we ... are in the process of developing a general acute care hospital in Kearney, Nebraska," he says.
About Carrie Rengers
Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle's Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? blog is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math.
A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
