Client Objectives

OneBlood is a not-for-profit healthcare organization that has served the community for more than 65 years. Their life saving mission of collecting, processing and distributing blood to those in need has a direct and immediate impact on our community's health and welfare.

To fulfill that mission, OneBlood employs 1,000 professionals in 21 counties serving more than 70 hospitals and medical facilities throughout the state. They also support advanced scientific study into the prevention and treatment of disease, such as through their partnership with the Burnham Institute for Medical Research.

Results

OneBlood retained Cresa Orlando to oversee the analysis and review of approximately 40 locations across Florida. Their real estate locations varied from owned land to supplemental space with the majority being direct lease space. Cresa Orlando helped streamline the lease relocation and in some cases, renewal process to achieve significant cost savings per location by evaluating the market and aggressively negotiating on OneBlood's behalf.

Under-producing sites were relocated to more densely populated submarkets and excess/supplemental space was either subleased or a lease termination was negotiated. The client benefited from significant improvement dollars from landlords and an overall evaluation of each location's deficits, so that OneBlood could then secure more beneficial terms during the negotiation process.

Additional Assignments

Cresa Orlando continues to work closely with OneBlood and all their Florida locations.
