Orange Park Clinical Centre ideas to break ground up coming spring on a freestanding crisis middle in Middleburg.
The $14.4 million undertaking, predicted to open up in late 2022, will be at 2554 Blanding Blvd. at Everett Avenue. An aged strip mall is at the moment on the 4.6-acre web site, which was purchased in March for $3.8 million.
The new centre, which is about 11 miles from Orange Park’s key healthcare facility, will be “conveniently positioned” to provide emergency treatment not only to residents of Middleburg, but Lake Asbury, Eco-friendly Cove Springs and Penney Farms, hospital officials reported.
“When men and women practical experience an emergency, they’re hunting for speedy, effective, excellent and convenient treatment,” said emergency place medical professional Steven Goodfriend, emergency services medical director. “By bringing this new ER to the Middleburg area, we’ll be ready to meet the community’s developing want with the similar higher amount of treatment that we offer at our key hospital.”
The new location will have 10,820 sq. feet, 11 individual rooms and on-internet site imaging and lab expert services. The entire-company emergency division will work 24 hours a working day, seven times a week with board-qualified doctors, nurses and staff members experienced to take care of older people and children.
People also will have brief accessibility to the Orange Park hospital and its maternity, stroke, superior cardiovascular, neurology and surgical treatment experts.
“Essentially we are bringing Orange Park Medical Center, together with our specialty care, nearer to people,” Goodfriend said.
The Middleburg center will be the hospital’s third freestanding emergency home. The initially two are in Jacksonville: Park West ER opened in 2016 on 103rd Street and expanded the next yr and Normandy Park ER opened in 2019 on Normandy Boulevard. Combined, the two centers treated about 60,000 people in 2020.
“Promptly right after we opened our Park West ER, it was apparent that obtaining an emergency space near to people’s properties was in fantastic demand,” Goodfriend said. “We quickly expanded the house by 3,100 sq. ft
The new unexpected emergency center is the most up-to-date task in the hospital’s ongoing enlargement strategy.
In June it introduced a $34 million multiphase job that will increase 68 more rooms to its not too long ago opened higher-tech patient tower and make the medical center the fifth most significant in the Jacksonville region. That project is predicted to be accomplished in the fall of 2023, supplying the hospital 408 total beds, including a new “condition-of-the-artwork” 20-mattress intense care device.
The 5-story client tower opened in March and was part of a $126 million enlargement on the most important Kingsley Avenue campus.
The healthcare facility also recently declared the opening of Orange Park Women’s Health, an obstetrics and gynecology observe serving individuals in Clay County. The four-doctor follow is at 1893 Kingsley Ave., Suite C on the healthcare facility campus.
