Even more exciting news for business development in Winter Haven. Through a partnership between Six/Ten, LLC and Bond Clinic a brand new 36,000 square-foot medical building will be erected on the corner of Ave C NW and First Street (325 North First Street, N.W.) This will be the largest new office construction project in downtown Winter Haven for more than 40 years. The new facility will house urgent care and primary care medial services. A groundbreaking ceremony was held this morning at the site and the project's team includes numerous Chamber members such as Six/Ten, LLC, E. Whitehead & Son, General Contractors, WMB Architecture, Bond Clinic, and Envisors, a division of Pennoni, as engineers.
“Bond Clinic has been invested in the healthcare of our community for over 68 years, purposing to meet the ever growing needs of our thriving community,” said Panagiotis Iakovidis, MD, Bond Clinic’s CEO/President of the Board. “We are honored to partner with Six/Ten to bring to reality another structure that will further enhance our ability to provide the health care of today’s world but install the foundations of the future health care requirements. We are working conscientiously with our patients, insurance carriers and local businesses to provide the care while reducing the costs and time constrains.” Dr. Iakovidis continued by saying, “this new campus will accommodate the Urgent Clinic and Pediatric practice as well as twelve additional providers.”
Once completed, the project is expected to bring more than 70 employees to the downtown area, with approximately 300 patient visits daily. Founded in 1948 by Dr. Benjamin Bond, originally in downtown on Ave A, the clinic has grown throughout the years from four doctors to more than 68 providers, encompassing 25 specialties. With a main campus at 500 E. Central Avenue, it was one of the first businesses in Downtown Winter Haven.
“Bond Clinic has long been a tenant of ours, and we are excited to partner with them on this latest project,” said Bud Strang, CEO of Six/Ten. “The added foot traffic generated from this new clinic will further support Winter Haven’s vision of becoming a preeminent downtown destination where people can live, work, learn and play.”
“The city’s Planning and Building departments have also been very helpful in this process, and we want to thank them for their prompt comments and insight during the permitting process,” said Joseph Bogdahn, Vice President of Six/Ten.
