The Orlando VA Healthcare System has awarded a lease to 5200 Professional Center LLC to house its new Palm Bay Clinic. Congressman Bill Posey, who was instrumental in obtaining approval, said: “After almost eight years of working towards 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.”
Congressman Posey’s vision has come into existence.
The Palm Bay Clinic is located at 5200 Babcock Street N.E. in Palm Bay.
The new clinic provides approximately 8,500 net square feet of space which will open in phases, with the first phase providing primary care services to Veterans already enrolled in care at the Viera Health Care Center.
“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.”
Dr. Adkins, who is the front runner in the race for State House 53 says she is excited and thankful for this development.
“I come from generations of Veterans in my family to include my husband Theo. Living in South Brevard has made it difficult at times getting to appointments for my husband all the way up in Viera. It is a blessing that Congressman Posey had the foresight to see this need, and took the actions to get it done.”
Adkins said she looks forward to repairing the relationship between Congressman Posey and the State Representative for District 53.
“One of my primary focuses in this campaign has been collaboration. We have to work together with all levels of government in order to serve our community the best we can. They deserve better.”
Marcie Adkins is running against incumbent Randy Fine in the republican primary race which is held on August 18th. Adkins has become the heavy favorite in the race.
The winner will face Democrat Phill Moore in the general election in November.
