Parrish Healthcare has opened a new healthcare facility at Port Canaveral that will provide a primary care/walk-in clinic as well as occupational medicine services, workers’ compensation care, diagnostics, physical therapy, industrial rehabilitation, and sleep disorder services. The center is open from 7 am to 7 pm on weekdays, and 7 am to 4 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
“We are proud to welcome aboard Parrish Healthcare to the Port community and congratulate them on the opening of their new facility. The availability of healthcare services from this on-port location is important for the seafaring community here. Cruise guests, crew members, and shore-side support staff in close proximity to the cruise and cargo operations will have easy access to healthcare that was not before available in our immediate area,” says Port CEO Capt. John Murray in a release.
Parrish Healthcare Center at Port Canaveral, located at 390 Challenger Road, opposite Cruise Terminal #1, was completed on July 17, 2017. The project’s general contractor was RUSH Construction Inc.
The single-story facility is approximately 10,000 square feet and includes examination rooms, imaging and lab services, a rehabilitation center, conference space, and doctors’ offices, among other services. Nitin M. Haté, MD, board-certified in Occupational Medicine and Environmental Medicine, will serve as the center’s medical director.
“In response to repeated requests from area businesses and communities, the Parrish Healthcare Center at Port Canaveral is one more way we are growing to provide more Brevard residents and visitors convenient access to superior health services,” says George Mikitarian, Parrish Healthcare president and CEO.
