~The company plans to add to new jobs with the expansion~
Central Shared Services, LLC d/b/a Parallon East Florida Supply Chain Services, recently expanded to 96,238 sq. ft. of space at 10094 Premier Parkway in the Miramar Park of Commerce, the largest locally owned and managed business park in South Florida. Parallon East Florida Supply Chain Services is a provider of medical and surgical supplies for HCA East Florida, a network of more than 30 healthcare facilities across South Florida and an affiliate of Hospital Corporation of America (HCA).
From the Park, Parallon East Florida Supply Chain Services distributes medical supplies to HCA East Florida’s fourteen affiliated hospitals, twelve surgery centers, four free-standing emergency care complexes, two open imaging centers and one integrated regional laboratory. The company expanded its space by approximately 20,000 sq. ft. to begin the distribution of consolidated pharmacy supplies to these facilities.
“The Miramar Park of Commerce is ideal due to its close proximity to the facilities we serve,” said Chief Operating Officer Tim Piper of Parallon East Florida Supply Chain Services. “We have convenient access to major roads and highways, which easily connects us with our clients from the Treasure Coast to South Miami-Dade County.”
Parallon East Florida Supply Chain Services currently employs 65 at its location in the Miramar Park of Commerce. With the expansion, the company plans to hire an additional 10 employees.
“In addition to a strategic location, Parallon benefits from the Park’s flexibility – there aren’t many commercial real estate providers that can expand and contract space to meet the needs of tenants as they change over time,” said Maridee Bell, vice president of Sunbeam Properties & Development, developer of the Miramar Park of Commerce. “This is Parallon’s second expansion in the Park. The company has grown to such an extent that they’re approaching 100,000 sq. ft. Not only do we have the capacity to house such large-scale tenants, but we have the means to accommodate this growth without moving the tenant to a new location.”
In the transaction, Parallon East Florida Supply Chain Services was represented by Tony Martin of TMG Realty Advisors and the Park was represented by Bell and Lauren Pace of Sunbeam Properties & Development.
Coinciding with Parallon East Florida Supply Chain Services’ expansion at the Miramar Park of Commerce is HCA East Florida’s planned capital investment initiative, which will invest approximately $650 million in healthcare facilities in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and St. Lucie counties. The initiative includes building new facilities and expanding and improving existing healthcare facilities within the East Florida market over the next three years.
The largest health system from the Treasure Coast to Miami-Dade County, HCA East Florida employs more than 16,500 individuals with more than 6,000 physicians on staff, creating an economic impact of more than $2 billion. HCA East Florida has the largest emergency room network and the most trauma centers in the area. HCA East Florida hospitals provide $290 million in healthcare services to those unable to pay for their care.
