A $25 million multispecialty surgery center and medical office building now under construction on Jacksonville’s Southside will be a collaborative operation between Jax Spine & Pain Centers and UF Health Jacksonville.
They billed the project at 5191 First Coast Technical Parkways as the “largest multispecialty freestanding ambulatory surgery center on the First Coast.”
A recent groundbreaking was “really a celebration to show the excitement both sides have for this project,” said Steven Boron, CEO of Jax Spine & Pain Centers. “There is a great need for it in the community.”
The three-story, 54,000-square-foot facility, which is expected to open in spring 2022, will house the Centurion Surgery Center on the first floor, UF medical practices on the second floor and Jax Spine and Pain Centers on the third floor.
The facility will “drive down the cost of health care by safely performing appropriately complex surgeries in an outpatient setting,” increasing efficiency and decreasing wait times, according to Spine and Pain Centers.
