A new option in preventative health care for seniors is coming to Virginia. Divaris Real Estate Inc. in Virginia Beach announced Monday the signing of three leases and the purchase of two buildings by JenCare Neighborhood Medical Centers. Three of the offices will be located in Hampton Roads and the other two will open in the Richmond area.
JenCare has leased a 10,000-square-foot office in Newmarket Shopping Center on West Mercury Boulevard in Newport News. Another lease for 5,700 square feet was signed for a location on Turnpike Road in Portsmouth. The company bought a 16,000-square foot building in downtown Norfolk on East Brambleton Ave, which already has opened.
In the Richmond area, the first location that will open is a 7,144-square-foot office in the Glen Lea Shopping Center on Mechanicsville Turnpike. JenCare bought the former Harper’s Hardware Store, an 11,867-square-foot building on East Broad Street.
According to the company’s Web site, the offices are scheduled to open this month, with the exception of the Richmond office, which will open in September. According to a press release from Divaris, JenCare specializes in primary and multi-specialty care for Medicare-eligible beneficiaries. It offers courtesy transportation to patients as well as on-site prescriptions, dental care and acupuncture services. The company started in Miami under the name of ChenMed, named after its founder, Dr. James Chen. It operates nine offices in that market. Divaris represented JenCare in leasing and sale negotiations.
