HCA Healthcare Acquires 55-Acre Land Parcel In Jacksonville For $16M

HCA Healthcare, the parent company of Memorial Hospital, has acquired a 55-acre land parcel in the Wildlight community of Jacksonville for $15.8 million. The property is located at northeast Interstate 95 and Florida A1A.

“This purchase will allow us to establish a future presence in Nassau County and to align with the planned growth in the region,” said Bradley Talbert, CEO of Memorial Hospital, in a statement.

Nearby the land parcel, Baptist Health acquired 26 acres at Florida A1A and Harper Chapel Road in May, and plans to build a 50,000-square-foot medical office building. Also nearby, UF Health Wildlight, a 23,331-square-foot medical office building, is currently under construction.

State Signs Off On Jacksonville Trauma Center

The Florida Department of Health on Friday issued a final order rejecting a challenge to a new trauma center at Memorial Hospital in Jacksonville.

The department adopted recommendations by Administrative Law Judge Robert Cohen, who ruled against UF Health Jacksonville, which has long operated a trauma center and filed the challenge.

The Department of Health last year gave what is known as “provisional” approval for Memorial to open a trauma center.

UF Health Jacksonville challenged the approval on a series of grounds, including whether a “slot” was available in the state trauma system to open another trauma facility in Northeast Florida.

But Cohen, in issuing his recommended order June 13, concluded that “Memorial met its burden of establishing that its trauma center application met the applicable standards” and rejected UF Health Jacksonville’s argument that the department improperly gave approval to the Memorial trauma center without an available slot.

Under administrative law, Cohen’s ruling had to go back to the Department of Health for final action.

The department’s order Friday did not expound on the details of Cohen’s recommendation.

The case was one of numerous legal battles in the hospital industry in recent years about whether trauma centers should be allowed to open.

Lawmakers passed a measure this year aimed at resolving most of the disputes, but the Memorial case continued.
