The town of Viera has long been in the works according to a master plan, and now that plan is paying off big time in the medical field. The three sons of Andrew Duda purchased the cattle ranch in the 1940s as much for family R&R than as for
commerce. In the 1960s when it was decided that an interstate highway would slice
through the A. Duda & Sons property, a plan was hatched to one day develop the
land on either side of I-95 into what is now called Viera. (Heres your fun trivia fact for
the day: While DUDA is known nationwide for growing produce [flip over that package
of Dandy brand celery and youll find that uppercase four-letter word], no edibles
have ever grown in Brevard soil, and sod production didnt start until the 1970s.)
The placement of Health First Viera Hospital in what is now the developing area
of west Viera created the anchor needed to draw a new medical community to
the area. It will be the center of a growing medical arts community similar to Holmes
Regional Medical Center, another Health First hospital that was once the place to
go for residents in the Suntree and now Viera communities. Increasingly, to the
delight of local residents, the 30-minute drive for healthcare is no longer required.
Not far away, and even more conveniently tucked into a residential area, is what we
at Viera MD have coined the Viera Medical Mile. Spyglass Hill Road, from Murrell
Road to Baytree Drive, is packed with every type of medical practice or diagnostic
service imaginable, from pre-infancy to end-of-life care, and many a specialty condition
in between. Everything is new and state of the art, typically with upscale design inside
and out. Viera residents love it for the convenience, and it could not be more handy
for Suntree residents, because zoning from Baytree Drive east to Pinehurst Avenue is
all residential. Doctors love spending their workdays in a place that would be great to
live, and many of them do, making it convenient for them as well.
As a Suntree resident with children, I concur with everything Viera resident Kristen
Cook says in the article on Medical Mile on page 20. It could not be better placed.
