PUNTA GORDA — Florida Skin Center has closed on a fourth site for the growing medical practice, this one in Punta Gorda, Charlotte County.
The new office is in a 7,000-square-foot, two-story building, according to a statement. The practice plans to open the new office, at 329 East Olympia Ave., in the first quarter of 2018.
Officials with the practice plan to make several renovations and improvements to the building. That includes adding spacious lounge areas and examination rooms; ongoing movies in the children's waiting room; Wi-Fi; coffee and juice bar; and diffused air throughout the facility. Those features are also in the practice's other three locations, in Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Lehigh Acres.
Florida Skin Center was founded in 2001. It had $4.8 million in sales last year and has 24 employees.
“For 16 years, we have fulfilled a need in the dermatological market of Lee County, and now it is time to provide that same five-star service to Charlotte County residents,” says Florida Skin Center founder Dr. Anais Aurora Badia in the release. “Our patients will drive through a prime business district to enter a luxury medical care establishment that fits the needs of children and adults alike.”
