Baptist Health South Florida is set to buy city-owned land in Sunrise for its first hospital in Broward County, beating out a rival bid for the 25-acre site.

The Sunrise City Commission voted 4-1 Tuesday to sell the hospital development site at 12401 West Oakland Park Boulevard to Coral Gables-based nonprofit Baptist Health for $14.3 million.

The price matched a joint bid for the site by two tax-supported hospital systems, Memorial Healthcare and Broward Health.

City commissioners who favored the bid by Baptist Health cited unkept promises by Broward Health to build a hospital in Sunrise at Pine Island Road and Oakland Park Boulevard, where the hospital system acquired property 20 years ago.

City commissioners in August declared the 25-acre site a “surplus” municipal property. It is on the northwest corner of Oakland Park Boulevard and the Sawgrass Expressway.
