The two-story medical office building, which is located on a 5.5-acre site, replaces Marquette General’s smaller Doctors Park building near Seventh Avenue and enables the system to expand healthcare services for Delta County residents.

The new building, developed, financed, owned and managed by Duke Realty, is 100 percent leased by Marquette General. The building houses a laboratory, home infusion, oncology, primary care, specialty care, imaging, physical therapy and occupational medicine services, as well as a blood donor center and administrative offices. Duke Realty has a long-term ground lease for the site, which is owned by Marquette General.

“The new Doctors Park in Escanaba is a significant expansion of our services and demonstrates Marquette General’s long-standing commitment to provide the highest quality healthcare to area residents,” says A. Gary Muller, Marquette General president and chief executive officer.

“The development team faced a number of challenges with this project, including the need to develop the facility during the cold winter months and meet Marquette General’s tight timetable,” says Keith Konkoli, Senior vice president, healthcare with Duke Realty. “We worked in close partnership with Marquette General to meet their needs and are proud to help them open their beautiful new Doctors Park, which will be a great community asset.”
