UHealth – University of Miami Health System continues to expand its footprint throughout Miami-Dade County with the opening of UHealth at Palmetto Bay. The opening of this location expands UHealth’s presence, particularly in Southern Miami-Dade County.

The office, located at 15155 SW 97 Ave, Suite 100, which celebrated its grand opening on Mar. 20, will offer the communities of Palmetto Bay, Pinecrest, Cutler Bay, and the surrounding areas access to academic medicine focused on healing, wellness, and prevention, delivered by some of the brightest minds in medicine.

The office will provide dually boarded providers in medicine and pediatrics who care for both adult and pediatric patients, in addition to a Family Medicine APRN for both in-person and virtual care appointments. As well, the office will offer OB/GYN services. If specialty care is recommended, patients can take comfort knowing that they have seamless access to the preeminent care UHealth is known for, coordinated by an on-site referral manager.

UHealth offers cancer care from Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, the only cancer center in South Florida to earn designation from the National Cancer Institute; advanced vision care from the No. 1 ranked eye hospital in the country, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute; urological treatments from the Desai Sethi Urology Institute; top-notch care from nationally ranked neurology and neurosurgery programs; and specialties such as cardiology, endocrinology, otolaryngology, gastroenterology, dermatology, physical rehabilitation, and others.

“UHealth’s presence in Palmetto Bay brings top-flight healthcare to the rapidly growing South Dade community,” said Dipen J. Parekh, MD, chief operating officer of UHealth, founding director of the Desai Sethi Urology Institute, and executive director of clinical affairs at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
