The $23 million, 20-bed facility is expected to open in early 2020.
The city issued construction permits Wednesday for Baptist Health Properties Inc. to expand into Southwest Jacksonville with a free-standing 20-bed emergency center.
The $23 million facility is scheduled to open in early 2020 at 9868 Family Place.
It will offer adult and pediatric emergency care at the Oakleaf Town Center at Argyle Forest Boulevard and Merchants Way next to the First Coast Expressway.
It will include a LifeFlight helipad.
Perry-McCall Construction Inc. is the contractor for the project – a 19,826-square-foot building and a trash enclosure on 2 acres – at a construction job cost of $10 million, permits show.
Gresham Smith is the architect and England-Thims & Miller Inc. is the civil engineer.
The center will feature a dedicated Wolfson Children’s Emergency Center on one side designed for patients up to age 17.
The Baptist/Wolfson Children's Emergency Center at Oakleaf will be the health system’s ninth emergency center in Northeast Florida, Baptist Health said.
Baptist Health Properties Inc. bought the property for almost $6.1 million from AFI Associates Inc.
The emergency center is the first phase of a medical campus on the 8.6-acre site. Baptist will add a medical office building.
