A group of six physicians contracted with Stevens Construction to build a 9,290-square-foot ambulatory surgery center with three operating rooms, five post-operating beds and six step-down recovery beds, as well as administrative office space.

Stevens Construction built the surgery center to withstand hurricane winds of 130 miles per hour and comply with the ASCE7-98 wind code. The windows and doors meet the Florida large-missile impact building code requirements.

Moreover, the center was designed to provide an attractive, comfortable atmosphere for patients and employees. A multi-colored brick exterior, large windows and an arched roof, give the building a contemporary feel. Covered entryways protect patients from inclement weather. Inside, natural light, decorative stone flooring and a vaulted wood-plank ceiling make the lobby more closely resemble a relaxing ski resort than a medical facility.

In 2013, Stevens Construction added a 4th operating room while the facility remained in operations, classifying it as a Type C, Class 2 (High Risk) ICRA project.
