Baptist Health is excited to announce the acquisition of 12 acres of land in Nocatee, a master-planned community in Ponte Vedra, Florida, recently named the No. 2 fastest growing suburb in the U.S. Groundbreaking for the comprehensive health campus will take place in early 2019.
“The new health campus will provide Nocatee residents and adjacent communities access to expanded clinical services, tailored programming and state-of-the-art facilities,” said Keith Tickell, vice president of strategic assets/real estate at Baptist Health. “Our goal is to design and plan based on the active, high-quality lifestyle already embodied by local residents.”
Committed to bringing health care to this community from the beginning, Baptist Health opened a Baptist Primary Care location in Nocatee Town Center in early 2015. Offering newly extended service hours and an expanded team of caregivers, this primary care office will relocate to the new building when it opens. A variety of services will be incorporated in the single location.
“Our vision is to create a highly convenient, innovative center for health care and wellness services for the whole family,” said Matt Zuino, president of physician integration at Baptist Health.
The facility, located just west of Nocatee Town Center and the Lakeside neighborhood facing Nocatee Parkway, will utilize the space to its fullest potential. The building will face a beautiful lake and be accessible via walking paths and golf cart paths in the community.
Health care providers and educators on this expansive new campus will focus on delivering interactive experiences and events designed for residents of all ages, including health and safety programming provided by THE PLAYERS Center for Child Health at Wolfson Children’s Hospital.
“Convenience is key,” said John Wilbanks, FACHE, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Baptist Health. “So we’re bringing together comprehensive services tailored to the needs of this vibrant community.”
