Completion of the project is expected in 2021.
Mayo Clinic announced it will invest $144 million in two projects to be built on its 400-acre Florida campus in Jacksonville.
They are the Mayo North Addition and a patient parking garage.
The addition will be a five-floor, 120,000-square-foot addition with a two-story building link between the Mayo and Cannaday buildings. It will have space for up to eight operating rooms, procedural space for cardiology, gastroenterology and hepatology, and other departments. Completion is expected in 2021.
The 1,000-space parking garage will be next to the Cannaday Building. A two-story connector building will be built to include about 25,000 square feet of space for retail and other uses. Completion is expected in 2020.
Over the past three years, Mayo said it invested nearly $500 million in construction projects that more than double its space with 520,000 square feet of facilities for patient care, biomedical research, education and technology.
Mayo said it has added more than 1,000 staff members, including 130 physicians and scientists. Its Florida campus has more than 6,400 employees and contributes $2 billion to the state economy.
