First Choice ER
First Choice Emergency Room is the oldest and largest freestanding emergency room system in the United States. In 2012 we initiated our program for rapid expansion of our format. I knew that in order to be successful, I needed to engage developers experienced in transaction management, entitlement and permitting, and construction project management as part of a multi-unit rollout. Based upon my prior experiences with the team members at Hummel Investments, I knew that they were right for the job. Hummel Investments understands our site selection criteria and shares our sense of urgency. Each member of the Hummel Investments team has the same can-do attitude when it comes to helping us achieve our development objectives. Hummel Investments' attention to detail allows us to maximize the talent and reach of our internal team.
