Later in the month, we attended a topping-off ceremony in Nassau County for the UF Health Wildlight medical office building. Several of us signed the last beam, which marks a significant milestone in the construction process.
The building has 40,000 square feet of office and medical space for primary care, using a patient-centered model focused on prevention and early diagnosis. It will include urgent care staffed by emergency medicine faculty, imaging services, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, mental health services, dentistry and a laboratory.
This facility plays a key role in our long-term strategy in Northeast Florida. We remain on schedule to start patient care there in early December 2019.
