Caregivers Health Network, Inc. has signed a five-year lease with Neyer Properties at its Keystone Parke building in Cincinnati.
Caregivers provides skilled home health care and private-duty nursing and rehabilitation services to patients in greater Cincinnati.
“We chose Keystone Parke for its easy access to local hospitals,” said Becky Miars, R.N. and director of clinical services at Caregivers. “We receive referrals not only from doctors’ offices, but also from community agencies, hospitals, and patients themselves, and Keystone Parke is centrally-located.”
The fact that Keystone Parke is a “green” building also swayed them.
Caregivers” 4,000 square foot space contains several green features including: recycled wallcovering, carpet tile, and ceiling tile; low VOC paints; use of regionally- produced materials; fluorescent lighting; fixtures to increase delighting; and an energy management and digital control system to control lighting and mechanical systems based on occupancy and natural daylight in the space.
“We were able to work with Neyer to decide how to arrange the best plan for us to maximize and efficiently use the space,” said Miars.
Keystone Parke has achieved LEED Silver for its exterior core and shell. Space is still available in the 68,000 square foot building.
The Neyer Properties office interior was awarded LEED Gold earlier this year, and is the first commercial interior in the state of Ohio to attain that distinction from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Dan Neyer, president of Neyer Properties, made a pledge when Keystone Parke opened in 2008 to go green for all new future office and medical facilities. “Green building is the right thing to do, and all future Neyer Properties office projects will be built to LEED Standards,” he said. “Studies show that employees are healthier, happier and more productive in green workplaces.”
Neyer Properties is a leading real estate investment, land development and commercial development company in the greater Cincinnati and northern Kentucky region.
