Palm Medical Centers Strengthens Presence in Orlando With Opening of New Clinic, Builds Upon Current Success Throughout Florida

Coral Gables, FL — Palm Medical Centers (“Palm”), an MBF Healthcare Partners II, L.P. (“MBF”) portfolio company and one of the largest and fastest growing independent primary care medical groups in Florida, has opened a new clinic in Orlando. This clinic follows the recent addition of four facilities from Valley Medical Centers in April 2023 and deepens Palm’s commitment to serving the greater Orlando market.

Orlando, which has one of the most concentrated populations of Medicare beneficiaries in the United States, is a key focus of Palm’s continued expansion throughout Florida. The new practice, on Goldenrod Road, is led by Marilyn Llavona-Suarez, MD, a primary care physician with more than fifteen years of experience in the Orlando area. The center is Palm’s 34th primary care clinic.

Patel, Chief Medical Officer of Palm Medical Centers. “Each of our clinics and team of physicians in Orlando and throughout Florida specializes in delivering an elevated, streamlined patient experience that is personalized to their specific needs.”
