New healthcare options for local residents


Published:

Viera/Suntree residents have a new option for general practice healthcare and pediatric health.

Kenneth McElynn, M.D., is a board-certified physician with Parrish Healthcare and recently opened a new office at 7925 N. Wickham Road, Suite B. Dr. McElynn has been practicing medicine since 1999 and is fluent in both English and Spanish. Before heading to the Suntree area, McElynn worked in a veterans disability clinic in Jacksonville, North Carolina.

McElynn’s office is part of a recent expansion of the offerings from Parrish Healthcare that include Parrish Medical Group, a nonprofit public medical center located in Titusville. The 210-bed location is a recipient of Integrated Care Certification by The Joint Commission and is Central Florida’s only Mayo Clinic Care Network member.

“We’re proud to extend the reach of our mission — Healing Experiences for Everyone All the Time — to the Viera community,” said Natalie Sellers, vice president of Parrish Communications, Community & Corporate Services.

Also located at McElynn’s office is the Florida Health Network, a group of healthcare providers, insurers and others working together to improve quality and safety and lower healthcare costs on behalf of individuals, families and businesses. Florida Health Network is also under the Parrish Healthcare umbrella of services. 

Residents looking for a pediatric option can visit Dr. Eliana Vasconcelos McKee, another Melbourne-based Parrish Healthcare physician who specializes in pediatric health. McKee’s background includes medical training at the Federal University of Ceará in Fortaleza, Brazil. She has served as the chief resident and pediatric resident at Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi, Texas. Her office is located at 6300 N. Wickham Road, Suite 132B.
