Brooks Rehabilitation announced its purchase of 14 acres near the State Road 207-Interstate 95 interchange for a future facility.
According to a release from Brooks, the property was selected based on its strategic location and the significant growth occurring in St. Johns County.
Many health care organizations are expanding into St. Johns County or increasing operations there. The county has seen startling population growth in recent years, going from about 191,000 residents in 2010 to about 264,000 by 2019, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
Baptist Health also owns land at that intersection but has not announced its specific plans for the property.
“Brooks has been a recognized leader in physical rehabilitation for more than 50 years. Purchasing this land is an investment in the long-term future expansion of our system of care,” said Doug Baer, president and CEO of Brooks Rehabilitation, in the release. “While we do not have immediate plans for its specific use, we want to position Brooks to meet the rehabilitation needs of this rapidly growing region.”
Brooks currently operates seven outpatient therapy clinics in St. Johns County with more than 40 throughout Florida.
