A specialty hospital and a medical office building – South Florida Spine & Orthopedic Institute – have been proposed west of Delray Beach on the 11.25-acre site at 14930 Smith Sundy Road, which is on the north side of Atlantic Avenue, a few blocks west of Lyons Road.
Medical Facilities LLC, a partnership of Irving, Texas-based Legent Health and 29 local physicians, has the agricultural site under contract from Delray Growers, owned by Melissa McKeown of Lighthouse Point and Christopher McKeown of Reston, Virginia.
The applicants want to rezone the site to allow for a 60,000-square-foot hospital building and a 60,000-square-foot medical office building. The hospital would have 24 beds. There would be 10 physician offices, outpatient treatment areas and 363 parking spaces.
According to the South Florida Spine & Orthopedic Institute, it would not be a traditional hospital with an emergency room. It would provide only spine and orthopedic surgeries, which are in high demand by Palm Beach County’s older population.
