Florida Community Health Centers’ (FCHC - http://www.fchcinc.org ) Okeechobee project shell is approximately 70% complete. This project is the first phase of the Fred D. Brown Children’s Health Center. FCHC will provide pediatric medical and dental services in the 20,000-square-foot facility, which is located across the street from Raulerson Hospital. The project is slated for completion this summer.
FCHC selected The Greenfield Group to develop the new facility. FCHC and Greenfield worked together previously at Greenfield’s St. Lucie Medical Park, which completed construction in 2008.
The new center is named in honor of Dr. Fred Brown, who has been a pediatrician for nearly 49 years, with almost 29 of those years caring for generations of children in Okeechobee County. “My whole life and education have been directed toward children,” Dr. Brown said in a 2007 interview.
