Medical clinic to fill Five Points anchor space

April 16—HIGH POINT — A vacant flagship space in a Five Points mall will soon take on new life when a national chain of primary care physician practices open an office there.

ChenMed has leased 131 Greensboro Road, with plans to open one of its subsidiaries, Dedicated Senior Medical Center, there, according to High Point Economic Development Corp.

This 17,000 square foot space within the Eastgate Mall has been empty since a Sav-A-Lot grocery store closed in 2018.

Based in Miami, ChenMed operates nearly 100 primary care medical practices in 12 states, according to its website.

The company will invest $1.7 million in building amenities at the High Point site and create 30 jobs with an average annual salary of $90,339 in its first two years of operation, according to EDC.

On Monday, city council will be asked to approve a resolution for a $300,000 state building reuse grant to the company to help with improvements.

The practice will serve seniors with Medicare Advantage insurance.

The resolution states that ChenMed “is the largest physician-led, family-owned provider of primary care, serving the most needy and underserved populations in the United States.”

It will open its High Point office in June, according to Brown Investment Properties of Greensboro, which manages the mall.

Other tenants include Family Dollar, BestWay and Metro by T-Mobile. — 336-888-3531 — 336-888-3531
