construction site with crane and building_canstockphoto7783211 760x320

Site work has begun on a new 87-acre medical complex in Panama City Beach, Fla., that will include an ASC, facilities for orthopedic surgery and cardiology, a hospital, urgent care and primary care, according to an Aug. 29 report from the Panama City News Herald.

The center is being built through a partnership between Tallahassee (Fla.) Memorial Healthcare, Tallahassee-based Florida State University and St. Joe Company, a developer.

The hospital building was originally slated to open with 30 to 40 inpatient beds, before expanding to 100 down the line, but due to demand, the facility may need all 100 beds now, according to the report.

The medical office building on the currently-unnamed campus is expected to open sometime in 2024, with the hospital set to open in 2027.

“There’s a lot of great hospitals in this area, but [they] are a distance away,” Andrew Starr, chief health operations officer at Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare, told the Herald. “That [creates] a real opportunity [for this campus], and also a situation that needs to be bridged as you have more and more citizens moving into this immediate area and the surrounding areas. Having a healthcare infrastructure to further support the growth and population is not a want, it’s a need.”

Moffitt Cancer Center is acquiring 9 acres in south Hillsborough County to make cancer care accessible to thousands more patients.

Moffitt plans to build a new outpatient facility at the southeast intersection of East College Avenue and 27th Street South in Ruskin, less than a mile from Interstate 75.

By November, Moffitt expects to complete the purchase of land and have it rezoned, with final approval expected by the end of the year.

Moffitt plans to build a 75,000-square-foot facility with construction starting in early 2023 and completion by late 2024. Services offered will include screening and diagnostics, advanced imaging, clinical lab services, blood draw, biopsies, medical oncology, radiation oncology, infusion, pharmacy and clinical trials.

Moffitt expects to serve nearly 9,000 patients within four years and create 150 jobs its fifth year in operation.

“Moffitt is building incredible momentum to expand our footprint and bring cancer care closer to where our patients live,” said Dr. Patrick Hwu, president and CEO of Moffitt. “We are laser-focused on future expansions that will allow us to create a Moffitt health system to address the growing cancer burden in the state of Florida.”

Moffitt is also developing 775 acres in Pasco County, the largest expansion in the cancer center’s history. The new life sciences innovation district will serve as a hub for research, digital innovation, education and patient care. The multiyear, multiphase project will include about 16 million square feet of research lab, light industrial and manufacturing, general office and clinical building space.

The city issued a permit Aug. 11 for the Village Medical build-out at Walgreens at 3505 University Blvd. W. in the Lakewood area.

It is one of 10 Village Medical at Walgreens clinics opened or planned in Duval County.

As with the others, the project will add the clinic with eight exam rooms.

Walgreens and VillageMD opened the first Village Medical at Walgreens primary care practice in the Jacksonville area Feb. 15 at 105 Julington Plaza Drive in St. Johns County.

The planned and improved renovation costs so far top $6.3 million in Duval.

In addition to the Lakewood area, they are in:

Village Medical at Walgreens offers primary care along with pharmacy services.

The Jacksonville clinics are part of Walgreens’ effort to open 600 or more Village Medical centers by 2025 and another 400 by 2027.

Walgreens said the clinics are ideal for patients with chronic conditions who need multiple daily prescriptions. It said the clinics accept a wide range of health insurance options and offer in-person and virtual appointments.
