On Thursday, November 2, SFC Enterprises, Inc. hosted an open house and ribbon cutting of the new Marlboro Medical Arts Building, located at 479 Route 520 in Marlboro. The new medical pavilion is home to an array of health service providers including Immediate Care Medical Walk-In of Marlboro, CentraState Physical Therapy and Primary Care, Dr. Gostovich, Marlboro Medical Arts Pharmacy, and Dr. Sadek of Advanced Surgical and Bariatrics.
“This medical facility has been a dream of mine since 2005. I wanted to create a medical complex where patients could go for emergency services, x-rays, lab work, and primary care,” said Sal Cannizzaro. “With the Marlboro Medical Arts Building now complete, residents have local, high-quality and high-end physicians to come to. We look forward to breaking ground on the second building that we plan to construct next door.”
The multi-purpose facility has been a vision for Sal Cannizzaro, CEO of SFC Enterprises, Inc. and Immediate Care Walk-In Management LLC, for many years, with construction of the building starting in August 2016. Plans for an additional 24,000 square foot, double-story building consisting of a surgery center and medical offices for pain management and sports medicine have already begun.
“I can’t think of a better addition to the town of Marlboro than a state-of-the-art medical pavilion to service our residents and their quality of life. This facility satisfies all the needs for a person’s health and development,” said Mayor Jonathan Hornik. “We know that you could have chosen many other locations to open this business and I appreciate you choosing Marlboro.”
A welcoming addresswas given by Sal Cannizzaro followed by the Vice President of Physician Practice Management for CentraState Healthcare System, James Richvalsky. A resolution on behalf of Marlboro Township was then presented by Mayor Jonathan Hornik with remarks then given by Freeholder Serena DiMaso, Freeholder John Curley, and Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon. Also in attendance were Marlboro Council President Jeffrey Cantor, Marlboro Council Vice President Carol Mazzola, and Matawan Council President Nicholas Reeve.
Frank Cannizzaro, son of Sal Cannizzaro and Vice President of Construction of SFC Enterprises Inc., presented his father with the same shovel used for the groundbreaking held in August 2016. The shovel had been chrome plated and engraved as a special gift to commemorate the ribbon cutting.
The official ribbon cutting ceremony included SFC Enterprises Inc., the attending dignitaries, Marlboro Medical Arts Building tenants, CentraState Healthcare representatives, and the Cannizzaro family. Tours of the facility, giveaways and a reception concluded the event.
