The city approved a permit Oct. 9 for Mayo Clinic in Florida to build-out its five-story patient tower addition at its Jacksonville campus at an estimated cost of $130.7 million.
The Robins & Morton Group of Orlando is the contractor for the 250,000-square-foot project at 4500 San Pablo Road S.
The city issued a permit March 13 for The Robins & Morton Group to build the shell construction at a cost of almost $60.3 million.
The shell and build-out total about $191 million.
The project will increase the building from eight floors to 13.
When completed, the 1.4 million-square-foot hospital will have 428 patient beds.
Construction documents say the five levels will comprise three for patient care units, one “shelled” story for future build-out and a floor for mechanical equipment.
Perkins & Will of Atlanta is the architect. Prosser Inc. of Jacksonville is the civil engineer.
Mayo announced Feb. 22, 2022, that it was starting a $432 million expansion at the San Pablo Road campus.
The expansion includes hospital support services and a central energy plant with completion planned at the end of 2026.
“The expansion of our hospital will enable Mayo Clinic to offer outstanding, high-quality care to more patients with serious and complex illnesses,” said Dr. Kent Thielen, CEO of Mayo Clinic in Florida, in the February 2022 news release.
Increasing patient demand for complex care is driving the expansion, Mayo said.
