The Florida Orthopaedic Institute, one of the largest orthopedic providers in the state of Florida, plans to open its first St. Pete medical center.

The medical group will redevelop a 3.73-acre property at 10051 5th Street North near the corner of Gandy Boulevard and 4th Street North.

A site plan and application showing a future three-story, 60,880-square-foot medical office building was recently submitted to the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) by the property owner and Pensacola-based planning firm Planeng Inc.

Florida Orthopedic Institute currently has 15 locations across the state, including several with urgent care services, and specializes in outpatient surgery and occupational and physical therapy.

The existing 50,931-square-foot building, which formerly served as a medical office for Optum Primary Care, will be demolished to make way for the new building.

St. Pete-based real estate firm Optimal Outcomes LLC, which purchased the two-story building last year for $8.75 million, partners with medical professionals to effectively and efficiently source the tools needed to build and maintain high-end medical facilities.

The construction timeline was not available.
