Hardoons Host Suntree Viera Professional Park Groundbreaking
By Space Coast Daily // July 3, 2014
Complex Will Feature Medical Offices, Diagnostic Center and 90-Bed Assisted Living Facility
BREVARD COUNTY • SUNTREE, FLORIDA – Officials conducted a groundbreaking and ribbon-cutting ceremony recently for Suntree Internal Medicine at the site of the future Suntree Viera Professional Park, located at Wickham Road and Pineda Court.
Site development is underway for the complex, an all-in-one “medical city” planned on nearly 24 undeveloped acres at Wickham Road and Pineda Court.
As dozens of contractors, construction workers and guests looked on, project developer Eric Hardoon, his father, Dr. Abe Hardoon, brother Dr. Scott Hardoon and Deb Gosnay, manager of Suntree Internal Medicine, symbolically dug gold-painted shovels into the ground.
The group then used oversized scissors to cut a ribbon to mark the start of construction of the 31,000-square-foot, two-story building that will become Suntree Internal Medicine’s new home.
When completed in late 2015, the complex will also feature a 90-bed HUD-financed assisted living facility, a large diagnostic center and offices, Eric Hardoon said.
Aesthetically pleasing amenities include a brick-paved entrance, a 6 ½-acre pond, fountains, oaks, benches and a lighted, public jogging trail.
“The community is realizing that this is definitely not a typical doctor’s office,” Eric Hardoon said during a champagne toast.
“This is reshaping Wickham Road and the Suntree area. We’re making Suntree a better place. This is going to be high-end. This is not going to be like anything that’s been seen here before. We have a true one-stop shop with everything for everybody here. And we’re trying to give back to the community with a nice public jogging trail. We’re going to have benches. It’s going to be beautiful. It’s like a park.”
The new Suntree Internal Medicine building should be completed by spring 2015, Eric Hardoon said. Work on the assisted living facility and diagnostic center should be finished by late 2015, he said.
Suntree Viera Professional Park is the brainchild of Hardoon’s father, Dr. Abe Hardoon, who purchased the property for development.
He opened Suntree Internal Medicine in 2002, then moved his practice to a larger location on Jordan Blass Drive in 2004. His other son, Scott, joined the practice several years ago.
Now Dr. Hardoon’s practice, which offers guaranteed wait times of 30 minutes or less, weekend hours and free onsite antibiotics to all patients regardless of health insurance, has outgrown itself once again.
Work on the assisted living facility and diagnostic center should be finished by late 2015, he said.
“Instead of coming for your doctor’s appointment, you can make a whole day out of your visit and take care of everything in one convenient location,” Dr. Hardoon said.
Suntree Internal Medicine is currently located at 903 Jordan Blass Drive in Suntree.
The facility is open seven days a week and offers a variety of medical services under one roof, including preventive care, physical exams, ultrasound, on-site blood tests, nuclear stress testing, glaucoma screening, immunizations and 72-hour glucose testing.
Hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
