July 3, 2013 | Jacksonville, FL
Construction is underway on the $8 million project that will reshape the look of the Baptist Medical Center Nassau campus and add a three-story medical office building.
Physicians and other offices are planned for the new building that is scheduled to open in the summer of 2014. Tenants will be finalized in coming months.
“This is another example of Baptist Health’s commitment to Changing Health Care for Good in Nassau County,” said Baptist Nassau Hospital President Stephen Lee. “We’ve listened to the community and added more physicians and services. This new building will allow us to continue to expand our capabilities and help Nassau County residents stay close to home for more of their health care needs.”
The project includes:
- Constructing a new parking lot and courtyard, along with repaving and landscaping 18th
Street to create a smoother entrance into the hospital.
- Relocating physician offices now in the brick building beside the hospital into the new medical office building.
- Adding a covered walkway connecting the new office building to the hospital.
All hospital and physicians services will remain open during construction.
