The Parrish Healthcare Center at Port Canaveral provides a primary care/walk-in clinic, as well as occupational medicine services, workers’ compensation care, diagnostics, physical therapy, industrial rehabilitation and sleep disorder services. The healthcare center is located at 390 Challenger Road, opposite Cruise Terminal No. 1.

The opening of the healthcare center in the summer of 2017 was the answer to repeated requests from area businesses and community members. The center provides Brevard residents and visitors convenient access to superior health services.

The availability of health care services from this on-port location is important for the seafaring community, too. Cruise ship guests, crew members and shore-side support staff, who are in close proximity to cruise and cargo operations, now have easy access to health care that was not before available in the immediate area.

The occupational health programs are led by board-certified physicians and offer comprehensive, tailored programs designed to help organizations foster a healing work environment that results in multiple benefits to employers, including:

  • Reducing health care costs
  • Minimizing workers’ compensation expenses
  • Increasing workplace safety
  • Lowering risks for workplace injury
  • Returning employees to work sooner
  • Compliance with state and federal health and safety regulations

In addition to the Port Canaveral location, Parrish Healthcare centers have a growing network with locations in Titusville and Port St. John. These healthcare centers bring together physicians and other providers with diagnostic services, immediate/urgent care services, occupational health services and other outpatient services to provide a one-stop solution for the people who live, work and play in these communities.

Parrish has a 60-year history serving Brevard. Through the ebbs and flows of both the county’s evolution, as well as the national health care system’s evolution and transformation, Parrish has proven its resolve to its mission, vision and values.

In 2016, with the announcement of Parrish Medical Center becoming the first nationally integrated care-certified health care organization by The Joint Commission, Parrish Healthcare was introduced. Parrish Healthcare includes Parrish Medical Center, a Mayo Clinic Care Network member; Parrish Medical Group, which includes primary care practices, all certified as Patient-Medical Homes by the National Committee for Quality Assurance; and Parrish Health Network, a regional network of collaborative health service providers.

Parrish Healthcare is the culmination of a vision that collaborative partnerships, over costly competition, are the way to improve quality, safety and service, as well as reduce costs. Parrish Healthcare’s collaborative network of hospitals, providers, insurers and other allied health, social and community-based service partners, are effectively removing duplication of services and applying shared, evidence-based best practices to achieve real integrated healing care for patients, families and communities.

The physicians at Parrish Healthcare Center located at Port Canaveral include Dixitkumar N. Modi, MD, Family Medicine; Homi Cooper, MD, Occupational Health; Nintin Hate, MD, Occupational Health and Environmental Medicine.
