Baptist Health will break ground in Spring 2023 on Baptist Nassau Crossing Medical Campus, a new freestanding Baptist & Wolfson Nassau Crossing Emergency Room & Imaging Center and medical office building, to provide additional health care services to the fast-growing areas of central and western Nassau County, Florida.
The new property is located just east of I-95 on State Road 200.
“Baptist Health has always been committed to making high-quality health care accessible to the community members we serve,” said Catherine Graham, MSH, senior vice president of clinical service lines and ambulatory business development. “Baptist Nassau Crossing Medical Campus will be a convenient hub with a wide range of medical services for all ages.”
Emergency and imaging services
The 23,879-square-foot emergency center features two emergency centers under one roof –Baptist Emergency Center for adults and Wolfson Children’s Emergency Center designed specifically for patients ages 0 to 17. More than 5,500 children in Nassau County sought emergency care between October 2021 - September 2022, according to Florida Agency for Health Care Administration’s Office of Data Collection and Quality Assurance. With the opening of this campus, families in Nassau County will have easier access to the specialized pediatric care of Wolfson Children’s, the only full-service children’s hospital in the region and the only state-designated Pediatric Trauma Center in Northeast Florida.
The emergency facility will have an adjoining Imaging Center for outpatient imaging, equipped with the latest technology to provide X-rays, ultrasounds, CT scans, mammography and bone density screenings.
The building is designed with the opportunity for future expansion as the community’s need for emergency services increases.
Primary care and specialty physician services
A 32,094-square-foot medical office building will be located behind the emergency center. Initially, the medical office building will house Baptist Primary Care and Baptist Behavioral Health, with the potential to add other specialty services.
The Emergency & Imaging Center and medical office building, a $38 million investment for the health system, is scheduled to open in early 2024.
“For nearly 30 years, Baptist Health has been serving the Nassau community,” said Ed Hubel, FACHE, hospital president of Baptist Medical Center Nassau. “It’s been incredible to see the growth, and we appreciate residents’ trust in us to help make the community an even healthier place to live!”
