New Retreat At Palm Beach To Create 200-Plus Jobs

The Retreat at Palm Beach County will construct a $12 million, state-of-the-art addiction treatment center in Palm Springs, with a groundbreaking set for Sept. 17.

The project will include two buildings totaling approximately 53,800 square feet. The facility will offer amenities such as a dining room, a commercial kitchen, therapy rooms and recreational facilities. The main building will include 107 luxury beds, with the second used for medical offices, administration and other support functions.

“The Retreat at Palm Beach is projected to create more than 200 jobs for operations, plus many more during the construction phase of this project,” noted Wayne Burns, CEO of the Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce. “We are excited that the Retreat selected central Palm Beach County for its newest location, and we welcome them to the Central Palm Beach County Chamber family.”

The new location in Palm Springs will combine a traditional treatment model with primarily in-network services.

“With more than 50 years of cumulative experience operating similar facilities, our team has a proven track record of delivering results,” said Retreat at Palm Beach owner and CEO Peter Schorr. “We are thrilled to become part of the economic vitality of Palm Beach County, while also improving the lives of individuals and families.”

The builder for the project is D. Stephenson Construction. It is scheduled for completion sometime in the fall of 2015. The groundbreaking will take place at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 17 at 4020 Lake Worth Road. Company executives, including Schorr, as well as local dignitaries will be in attendance.
