As the US continues to face the coronavirus pandemic, Eden Health says it’s launching a health amenity for the commercial real estate market that includes a primary care doctor and testing for the deadly virus.
Included in the amenity is an exam room for “routine primary care” and a wellness room, the company reported. It also includes a physical therapist and behavioral health specialist, along with a “diagnostic testing lab for convenient routine screening, including testing for COVID-19.”
“Landlords and their tenants are now in the business of delivering healthcare, whether they want to be or not. Access to telemedicine, or virtual primary care, is no longer seen as an employee benefit, but a new necessity.”
The company said they are offering a “quick and easy” way for commercial real estate landlords to give tenants of class A properties a healthcare amenity.
“Before COVID-19, leading employers were concerned with flourishes like keeping kombucha and cold brew taps flowing, whereas now the priority is following mandates on temperature checks and proper sanitization,” the company said.
David Abrams, managing director at commercial real estate advisory firm Newmark Knight Frank, notes that the coronavirus has drawn attention to safety and healthcare, even if wellness was an existing prominent amenity.
“Regardless of the coronavirus, forward-thinking CRE landlords are distinguishing themselves by partnering with cutting edge amenity service providers, offering everything from yoga to climbing walls and creative outdoor spaces,” he said.
