The medical center will create 14 more ER rooms and 10 care rooms.
Mayo Clinic is expanding its emergency department at its 4500 San Pablo Road campus in Jacksonville.
The city is reviewing a permit application for The Robins & Morton Group of Orlando to build-out 11,630 square feet of shell space for the expansion at a project cost of $7.98 million.
Mayo spokesman Kevin Punsky said by email July 6 that the space was created on the first floor of the North addition to the Mayo Building.
The project will create 14 new emergency department patient rooms and 10 new short stay/hybrid care rooms, said Punksy, communications manager.
He said it will have the support locations such as clean supply, soiled holding, medication supply and allied health staff space.
Construction is scheduled to start this summer for completion by April 2022.
He said the existing emergency department is about 17,000 square feet with 24 rooms for treatment.
“The expansion is in an adjacent shell space connected by the Lobby,” Punsky said.
It will be east of the existing emergency department lobby.
