The newer building just in front of Walmart in Fort Scott has been empty since 2019.
The building which housed a kidney dialysis center is still under lease, according to Mike Panek, President of Phoenix Realty Management, owner.
“We would be happy to find a new tenant so the building had some life,” Panek said. “The economics of property and the state of commercial real estate have made it challenging to find a suitable tenant with interest. Since it went dark, we have local and national brokers working on it.”
Phoenix Realty Management offices located are at 464 Heritage Rd, Southbury, CT 06488, can be reached at (203) 262-1922 or (203) 736-4813.
Fresenius Medical Care was the renter of the building at the time of closing and was the only kidney dialysis center in Fort Scott. The doors closed on September 30, 2019.
Patients had to make arrangements to either drive to Pittsburg, 30 miles away, or Chanute, 50 miles away, to get this specialized, life saving treatment, or do home dialysis.
The building was built in 2014 and is over 7,000 square feet.
At the time of the closure, Panek said they would be working with Fresenius to see what their plans are for the site as there was a lease in place for that location.
Fresenius spokespeople did not give a reason for closing the kidney health care facility.
