You’re a doctor who is searching through various properties, considering where you should plant your wonderful new medical practice in Naples. If yours is an independent practice just starting, keep in mind that shared medical office space can help you grow your practice at a more affordable cost.
Locating your medical practice in a dedicated medical building will not only help you to naturally and effortlessly network with other medical professionals in the area, but it will also help you develop a mutual referral group. Plus, your patients will be impressed at the professional atmosphere.
There are a few things you should know before you sit down and sign the lease. Let’s talk about some key questions to ask yourself when making your decision about renting medical office space, and where you can go in North Naples to start your search.
What Do I Need to Find Out When Leasing Medical Office Space?
Is this a good location for my practice?
Location – of course. Patients do factor inconvenience when it comes to choosing a new doctor. Consider: Is the location easily accessible from the major local roads? A well-located medical office space is more likely to attract new patients to your practice.
For how long is the lease agreement?
You need to know beforehand how long the lease term is going to be, and whether you can lock in low rates for future renewals of the lease. This is also a good opportunity to negotiate lease terms.
How much is it going to cost?
Get the lease rates in writing. The benefits of renting shared medical office space include saving on overhead, maintenance, and staffing costs.
What expenses do I need to cover?
You have to be clear on the terms, so you know what exactly your responsibilities are. Utilities, maintenance, and other property costs are usually divided among tenants, thereby lowering overall cost.
What about insurance?
You may already be paying for medical insurance and liability insurance, but now there are other types of insurance you will need to pay for – business insurance, such as property insurance. Discuss with the property owner who pays for insurance and how much it will cost.
What are the payment terms?
Be sure that you have a full understanding about not only what the monthly lease payments are, but also what you may be liable for in various scenarios.
Is the office space the right size for my needs?
Different types of medical practices have different space needs. Make sure you are getting the amount of square footage you need to run your practice efficiently and to keep your patients comfortable during their visit.
Who are the other tenants and medical services in the building?
Find out who the other tenants are, and what special medical services are offered in the building. Is there an imaging facility? How about an outpatient surgery center?
What kind of tenants can move into the building?
You may not want to be in a building with non-medical tenants. While you’re researching different properties, consider how your patients would feel when going to that building to see you. Most people feel most comfortable seeing a doctor who is located in an elegant, dedicated medical building, not in a generic (and possibly cheap-looking) strip mall.
When can I move in?
You have to be in agreement about the move-in date, so you can adequately plan for it. Be sure that the building facility can accommodate the medical technologies and procedures you will provide.
