The Health Care District of Palm Beach County, an independent taxing district, is a safety-net health care system formed in 1988 when residents voted to create a healthier community. The Health Care District of Palm Beach County provides an array of health care services, such as a nationally-recognized Trauma System, a School Health program with registered nurses in nearly 170 public schools, health coverage programs for eligible, uninsured residents, an acute care hospital, a skilled nursing facility, and the C.L. Brumback Primary Care Clinics. Currently located in Palm Springs, the Health Care District of Palm Beach County retained NAI Merin Hunter Codman Chairman Neil E. Merin, SIOR, CCIM and his team to represent them in identifying and securing a new headquarters space. The Health Care District of Palm Beach County will be moving their headquarters to Flagler Waterview in the summer of 2017.
“Flagler Waterview was a perfect fit for the Heath Care District of Palm Beach County. The organization was seeking a downtown West Palm Beach location with full medical zoning and a parking garage to accommodate visitors. Flagler Waterview, which neighbors Good Samaritan Medical Center, met those requirements with the added bonuses of complimentary valet parking, an on-site Walgreens Pharmacy and strong institutional ownership,” stated Neil E. Merin, SIOR, CCIM. Mr. Merin added, “Flagler Waterview offers professional and medical users stunning space at the most affordable rates on Flagler Drive.”
