Two medical projects are moving forward in northern St. Johns County and southern Duval County. 

Flagler Hospital applied to the St. Johns River Water Management District for a permit to clear and grade the 47.28-acre site where its Flagler Health+ Village will be built in Durbin Park in northern St. Johns County.

The project description said it also is seeking to construct a  surface water management system to serve a 29.26-acre roadway project.

The village, which will include a hospital, will be located along what will eventually become Flagler Health Way off of Peyton Parkway. 

The St. Johns County Board of County Commissioners approved the proposed 375,000-square-foot Flagler Health+ campus in May. The first phase will include family practice, women’s care, urgent care, pediatrics, imaging and laboratory services.

The second and third phases will bring a 150-bed hospital, outpatient surgery and cancer care.

The city of Jacksonville issued its conditional capacity availability statement July 20 to Brooks Rehabilitation for the construction of a proposed rehab hospital in Bartram Park in southern Duval County.

The hospital will provide rehabilitation services similar to the 160-bed facility Brooks operates on University Boulevard in Jacksonville. 

The $43 million project will house 60 beds.

It will be part of the existing 115-acre campus on Brooks Bartram Drive off of Bartram Park Drive. 

Construction is expected to begin by the end of the year.
