SUNTREE, Fla. (June 30, 2014) – Officials conducted a groundbreaking and ribbon-cutting ceremony for Suntree Internal Medicine June 30 at the site of the future Suntree Viera Professional Park 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, dug gold-painted shovels into the ground, then used oversized scissors to cut a ribbon to mark the start of construction of a 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.
Dr. Abe Hardoon, who purchased the nearly 24 acres of undeveloped property for development, first opened Suntree Internal Medicine in a 700-square-foot office 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.
