Surgery practice set to open at west-side Wesley office

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates will open a new office in early May in Wesley Medical Center's office building at 13th Street and Tyler Road.

The practice will lease about 5,100 square feet of space in the Westside Medical Office Building, said Kris Hall, senior real estate manager for Wesley Medical Center's commercial properties.

The office building has 27,020 square feet of space. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates is the third tenant, joining Associates in Women's Health and Heartland Cardiology.

The building is almost 50 percent occupied, Hall said, with the three tenants taking 13,356 square feet.

The building at 8710 W. 13th St. used to house an Albertsons supermarket. It's next to Wesley West Emergency and Diagnostic Center.

Icon Structures is the general contractor for the remodeling, which is nearly complete, Hall said.

Angie Hayes, business manager of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates, said patients will begin being seen at the new office around May 6. Kenneth Nelson, Roy Cole, Remy Blanchaert and Amit Dhameja will see patients there as well as at their east-side office, at 1919 N. Webb Road.

The practice has been leasing space at 982 N. Tyler Road, Hayes said. The new space is larger and will have state-of-the-art equipment. The practice also has an office in Great Bend.

Heartland Cardiology opened its 13th and Tyler office in September. Associates in Women's Health opened its office there in March 2008.

Hall is with CB Richard Ellis, which manages the property for Wesley Medical Center.
