Baptist Health South Florida has broken ground on a new wellness and medical center in Plantation that officials say will create 230 new jobs.
The 100,000-square-foot center, at 1228 S. Pine Island Road, north of Interstate 595, will offer primary care, diagnostic imaging, urgent care, multi-specialty surgery, medical oncology, physical therapy and a spine care clinic.
Broward County property records show that Baptist Health paid $4.2 million for the 258,251-square-foot property in October 2017.
“The new facility is part of Baptist Health’s mission to bring high-quality compassionate care to our South Florida community,” company spokeswoman Georgi M. Pipkin said in an emailed statement.
Pipkin declined to reveal a budget for the project, saying the information is “proprietary.” Completion is estimated in November 2020, she said.
Baptist Health South Florida is a not-for-profit, faith-based network with hospitals and medical centers throughout South Florida, including in Miami-Dade, Monroe, Palm Beach and Broward counties.
The company runs urgent care centers in Weston and Sunrise, medical plazas in Davie and Pembroke Pines, an orthopedics and sports clinic in Davie and a sleep center in Pembroke Pines, according to its website.
