The new healthcare facility was developed in conjunction with, and is located conveniently on, the new campus of Seton Medical Center. Developing the state-of-the-art medical office building was a collabortive effort between Rendina, LHP Hospital Group, and the new Seton Medical Center Harker Heights – the first new hospital in Bell County for more than 35 years. The medical office building was developed concurrently with the new hospital, and was considered integral in galvanizing interest from area physicians to take part in the new campus. Numerous specialties occupy the new medical pavilion including family practice, cardiology, OB/GYN, orthopedics, ophthalmology, ear, nose and throat, podiatry and emergency medicine.

Bruce A. Rendina
Lifetime Achievement Award
Throughout the past two decades, Bruce A. Rendina, as Chairman, CEO and President of Rendina, helped shape the national landscape of healthcare real estate by partnering with hospitals and physicians to develop medical facilities. He structured, developed and negotiated more than five million square feet of transactions in 30 states, valued in excess of $4 billion.
Rendina developed a concept that solved the needs of the medical community, and translated this idea into a career that helped change the way real estate is developed in the healthcare industry. Rendina founded the unique Equity Participation Program more than 20 years ago, that allowed hospitals to develop medical office buildings on their campus without having to put up any capital or take on any of the risks associated with the development or the mortgage debt. He also founded Paramount Real Estate Services, a property management company responsible for managing more than five million square feet of medical office space nationwide. Rendina was also responsible for two large-scale development projects in Palm Beach County, Florida; the Waterfront Clematis buildings in downtown West Palm Beach, which contributed to the revitalization of the downtown corridor; and the Abacoa Planned Community Development in Jupiter, a 2,055-acre, master planned mixed use community.
