Boca Raton, FL, United States (NewsBahn) – By Michael Barnes
Kaufman Lynn Construction just completed construction of the New Port Richey Surgery Center at Trinity.
The new facility is 17,000 square feet, double the size of the center’s original space. It will hold four operating rooms, two treatment rooms and pre-op and recovery areas.
The new surgery center occupies much of the first floor of the medical arts building adjacent to the Medical Center of Trinity.
The Healthcare Division of the Boca Raton-based Kaufman Lynn Construction completed preconstruction and eight months of construction on the new surgery center operated by Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), the nation’s leading provider of healthcare services.
HCA officials lauded Kaufman Lynn for a job well done.
“The Kaufman Lynn Construction – Healthcare Division team did a superb job in managing all aspects of the construction project,” said Mark Worsham, Director of Design and Construction for the HCA Ambulatory Surgery Division. “Everyone on the construction team was helpful, knowledgeable and always professional.”
Kaufman Lynn Construction was founded in 1989 and is a full-service commercial construction company that provides an array of “construction services including pre-construction estimating, value engineering, at-risk construction management, design-build, program management and general contracting services,” according to the firm’s website.
The Healthcare Division operates in the heavily regulated medical sector and has completed additional projects at the Boca Raton Regional Hospital and expansion of the Jupiter Medical Center.
Kaufman Lynn Construction is also active in other markets such as universities, colleges and schools. The firm has completed several projects at Florida Atlantic University including its Forkas Alumni Center and Recreation & Fitness Center.
The construction company is consistently ranked as one of the Top 25 largest general contractors in South Florida by the South Florida Business Journal. It has received numerous awards, particularly for its restoration work on Miami’s Freedom Tower. That project was recognized this month by the Engineering
News-Record publication as the best renovation/restoration project in the country.
Michael Kaufman is the founder, President and CEO of the firm. He built it up from three initial employees including himself to a powerhouse in the South Florida construction market.
