Ambulatory Surgery Center to Open in the Fall
Pain Management Clinic Will Relocate From Rockledge
BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – Physician Partners of America will open the initial phase of a 30,000-square-foot Merritt Island Medical Pavilion at 450 E. Merritt Island Causeway on Monday, July 23.
Physician Partners of America’s Space Coast interventional pain management practice will move from its Rockledge location to the new state of the art facility, which is housed in the former Circuit City store.
The company’s Rockledge facility at 211 Coral Sands Drive will permanently close its doors at the end of the business day on Friday, July 20. Its resident pain management physicians, Drs. Jorge Fernandez-Silva and Sheldon Cho, will begin seeing patients on July 23 at the medical pavilion.
Their practice will be renamed Physician Partners of America Pain Relief Group – Merritt Island.
There will be no disruption of service to current patients of Drs. Cho and Fernandez-Silva. Medical records will immediately move to the pavilion. Service hours will continue to be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.
Patients can continue to make appointments with Drs. Cho and Fernandez-Silva by calling 321-735-6220. The fax will remain 321-507-4638.
“This move will serve two purposes. It will allow us to serve more patients in the Space Coast market and make it more convenient for patients to get multiple services in one place,” said Physician Partners of America Chief Operating Officer Josh Helms.
The facility is intended to house multiple specialties in 6,872 square feet. Future expansion will add another 7,318 square feet of medical office space, in addition to a 9,824-square-foot, state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center with two operating rooms and one procedure suite.
The final phase of the construction will include a catheterization lab, pharmacy, laboratory and imaging services.
Physician Partners of America is a national healthcare company headquartered in Tampa. Founder Dr. Rodolfo Gari said the company is in the middle of a high-growth phase.
In less than four years, Physician Partners of America has opened 22 interventional pain management practices, including five in the Tampa Bay area; five AAAHC-accredited ambulatory surgery centers; COLA-certified qualitative and DNA testing laboratories; a primary care practice; and practices in orthopedics, personal injury, psychology and Workers’ Compensation.
The next phase of the development will be a multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center expected to open in mid-November. The center intends to partner with orthopedics, ophthalmology, spine, and other specialties in the Merritt Island market.
