St. Vincent’s HealthCare, which plans to open 10 Health Centers in the area, has identified a Regency area site for one of its new offices.
The Jacksonville-based health system submitted engineering plans to the city for a health center of 11,519 square feet on almost 1.6 acres at 9769 Hutchinson Park Drive.
That site is at Monument Road and Lantern Street, opposite the Gate station and near a Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Supercenter.
St. Vincent’s HealthCare Media Relations Coordinator Kyle Sieg said Tuesday the center is in the permitting phase and the opening date is summer 2018.
It is the fifth identified site for a Health Center in addition to Mandarin, West Jacksonville, Gate Parkway and St. Johns County.
St. Vincent’s also recently applied to build a Health Center in West Jacksonville at 6488 103rd St.
Batson-Cook Co. is the contractor to build the almost 15,200-square-foot Westside center at a cost of $3.2 million.
St. Vincent’s intends to develop 10 locations over 30 months at an estimated cost of $75 million.
David Meyer, chief strategy and marketing officer, said previously St. Vincent’s is buying the land in the majority of the locations.
The first Health Center opened in March in Mandarin and the second will open Nov. 1 in St. Johns County.
The health system intends to open a 16,000-square-foot Health Center along Gate Parkway in August 2018. Plans show it will occupy 1.34 acres near the FBI Building.
The first St. Vincent’s Health Center opened at 10503 San Jose Blvd. in Mandarin. It is a 20,000-square-foot renovated and expanded former Walgreens that St. Vincent’s leases. The second newly constructed 20,000-square-foot center will open at 2001 County Road 210 west of Interstate 95 in St. Johns County.
Jacksonville-based St. Vincent’s said the new-concept health centers are designed to provide essential services such as urgent care, primary care, imaging, lab services and specialty care in one location.
