Press Release (ePRNews.com) - DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Mar 16, 2017 - Stewart-Marchman-Act Behavioral Healthcare (SMA) announces the planned move of their Administrative Headquarters to 150 Magnolia Avenue in Daytona Beach as part of their initiative to further integrate and centralize clinical services at the Willis Avenue campus. The recent opening of a primary care clinic at the Willis Avenue location, combined with the consolidation of SMA’s East Volusia outpatient service sites, represents a giant step toward the delivery of integrated healthcare for the residents of the area.
CEO Ivan Cosimi states that the property located at 1220 Willis Avenue, and squarely within the healthcare corridor of Daytona Beach, is a prime location for the expansion effort. “We strive to deliver exceptional and comprehensive care to our clients. Ease of access to our services is core to that goal.” He cites public transportation, proximity to hospitals, and recognition that the location is the original and established site for behavioral health services as factors in making this decision. He expressed, “It is the ideal place to locate our services.”
SMA’s Chairman of the Board, Howard Stange, remarked that the Magnolia Avenue property, located within the Downtown Daytona Beach redevelopment area, gives SMA an opportunity to become a part of the revitalization of Daytona Beach. “We are fortunate to have located attractive and affordable business space,” said Stange, “We are excited that our business offices will be located within the historic Beach Street business district.” Since the merger of Stewart Marchman Center and ACT Corporation in 2008, SMA’s workforce has grown to almost 900 employees, with behavioral health services provided in Volusia, Flagler, St. Johns, Putnam and Columbia Counties.
SMA is a large, diverse organization, with a centralized management structure that includes finance, human resources, information technology, and development departments. Approximately 60 employees will be located at the new office space, joining the more than 8700 business professionals already downtown.
