The Orlando VA Healthcare System has announced the award of a lease to 5200 Professional Center LLC to house its new Palm Bay Clinic.

The Palm Bay Clinic will be located at 5200 Babcock Street in Palm Bay.

The new clinic will provide approximately 8,500 square feet of space, which will open in phases. The first phase will provide primary care services to veterans already enrolled in care at the Viera Health Care Center. Basic laboratory services also will be available at the initial phase.

 The need for future services will be evaluated as the clinic develops and will be determined and based on the care demands of veterans utilizing the clinic.

Congressman Bill Posey helped to obtain approval for the Palm Bay facility.

"After almost eight years of working toward this important goal, I’m pleased that Palm Bay area veterans will now soon be able to get the VA medical services they need closer to home in Palm Bay. With almost 35,000 veterans enrolled at the Viera Clinic, this new primary care VA facility will help the VA keep up with the growing demand for services."

Activation of the Palm Bay Clinic is expected to be completed by June 1, with patients being seen during the first week of June.
