City issues permits for Brooks Rehabilitation in Bartram Park

The medical facility expects to open the 60-bed hospital addition in 2022.

The city issued three permits March 9 for construction of an additional 60-bed hospital for Brooks Rehabilitation at its 115-acre Bartram Park campus in South Jacksonville.

Jacksonville-based Brooks is building the hospital at 6400 Brooks Bartram Drive.

Brooks announced Jan. 25 that it broke ground on the addition.

The city issued permits March 9 for Perry-McCall Construction Inc. to build the three-story, 76,056-square-foot hospital as well as chiller and trash enclosures.

According to the three permits, the job costs are $2.05 million, although those do not reflect the entire project.

In December 2019, Brooks Rehabilitation announced the $43 million, 60-bed rehabilitation hospital next to its Bartram Park campus in South Jacksonville.

Total construction costs are expected to be about $37 million.

The city issued a permit Dec. 22, 2020, for the $343,000 foundation project.

England-Thims & Miller Inc. is the civil engineer. Gresham Smith is the designer. 

Brooks expects to open the hospital in the first quarter of 2022. 

Brooks built its original 160-bed rehabilitation hospital at 3599 University Blvd. S. It also manages a 40-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in partnership with Halifax Health in Daytona Beach.

Like at the original hospital, the new Bartram Park facility will provide treatment for patients after a brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury or other disabling illness or injury. 

“After a careful needs assessment, we determined a second hospital in Jacksonville will allow us to treat more patients with our specialized services to achieve the best possible outcomes,” said Doug Baer, Brooks Rehabilitation president and CEO, in a previous news release.

“We will expand to add additional inpatient beds in the future, as necessary.”
