Miller Completes EliteHealth’s Innovative Medical Practice Facility in North Bay Village
NORTH BAY VILLAGE, Fla. – Miller Construction Company has completed the build-out of a state-of-the-art primary care and diagnostic center for fast-growing, regional medical practice EliteHealth, on the ground floor of the five-story 1700 79th Street Causeway building in North Bay Village.
Partnering on its fourth Florida location with Humana, EliteHealth has created the 8,979-square-foot medical center and adjacent EliteHealth Eye Care Center. Focused on boosting wellness while raising healthcare’s standards for comfort and convenience, the innovative facility replaces the typical waiting room with an inviting area where patients can enjoy coffee and go online. In addition to exam rooms, a medical procedure room, ultrasound, X-ray and allergy testing areas, the new facility includes an activity room where patients can proactively improve their health with EliteHealth programs such as exercise classes, meetings and workshops by healthcare experts. The facility serves a wide range of patients.
“As our approach to improving the patient experience propels our practice’s steady growth, we appreciate the Miller team’s specialized expertise in healthcare construction, plus their efficiency and top-tier craftsmanship,” said Dr. Perry Krichmar, EliteHealth co-founder and chief operating officer.
In addition to ensuring safety and convenience of the North Bay Village location’s other office tenants throughout construction, challenges to Miller’s crews included cutting approximately 50 linear feet of structural slab, much of it by hand, to ensure rebar could be reconnected using couplers before repouring concrete. It was the latest healthcare project for Miller Construction, which has completed hospital and healthcare construction valued at more than $100 million throughout South Florida.
Miller had completed the prototype primary care center for EliteHealth in Davie, Fla. in 2017, and the design/build firm previously built the medical practice’s 10,347-square-foot diagnostic and patient care facility in Pembroke Pines.
With headquarters in Miami Beach, EliteHealth focuses on preventive medicine and primary medicine as well as executive healthcare, concierge medicine and corporate wellness. Using advanced medical technologies, EliteHealth offers patients comprehensive assessments of their health and action plans for maintaining consistent wellness.
