Coastal Orthopedics Plans to Expand with Lakewood Ranch Headquarters 
December 9, 2020

After 16 years of doing business in East County, Coastal Orthopedics has decided to build its corporate headquarters in the community with an 88,000-square-foot facility on a 17-acre parcel on State Road 64, just east of Interstate 75.

The move is largely a response to rapid population growth in East County and the I-75 corridor.

"We've made a huge commitment to East County by putting our largest location, to include all of our administrative offices, out there," Coastal Orthopedics President Dr. Arthur Valadie said. "We think that's going to allow us to provide care for that whole corridor, all the way from Parrish and Ellenton, all the way down to that huge amount of growth in Lakewood Ranch and south down to Sarasota County. And the fact that we're about a half-mile off the interstate really makes all of our services accessible."

Construction is expected to begin in January. Read more
