DALLAS-Transwestern Commercial Services is adding a healthcare group in Dallas, hiring a six-year professional to steer the initiative. The practice’s first project will be ready to air in 30 to 60 days.

Jeff Smith, who left Dallas-based Cawley Wilcox Cos. in recent weeks, was named senior vice president of the group, which is patterned after Transwestern’s healthcare divisions in the Mid-Atlantic and its headquarters city of Houston. Smith tells GlobeSt.com that he’s continuing to phase out his work with Cawley, specifically the upcoming groundbreaking of a 90,000-sf medical office building at 1111 Hall St. near the Baylor Health Systems’ main facility in Dallas.

In a prepared statement about the amicable split, William Cawley, president of the Cawley Wilcox Cos., says he wishes the best for Smith and “enjoyed working with him.” Smith, a FultsOncor alumnus, spent the last 3.5 years with Cawley.

Smith says he’s brought his black book of healthcare clients, predominately surgical, imaging and dialysis center operators, to the Transwestern job. He won’t say what or where, but did say he’s working on a deal for a major announcement in 30 to 60 days from the Transwestern camp.

Smith, who’s looking to add up to five members to the team, says the focus is build-to-suits, spec medical office development and tenant representation. “I foresee the market’s going to be good for the next several years in medical services,” he says, citing the rapidly rising statistics from Baby Boomers’ projected retirements.
