At UF Health Wildight in Nassau County, a private ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for Nov. 22 to mark the opening of the medical office building there. A public open house, complete with tours, will be held the following day.
The practice, which opens for service Dec. 6, features 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.
In related news, we will be closing our family medicine and women’s specialists practice in Yulee and moving those operations over to Wildlight. The shift makes logistical sense, as we’re positioning Wildlight as the epicenter of health care for residents in that part of Nassau County and surrounding communities.
The next UFJP article in Academic Matters will feature information on the practice plan’s finances and performance for fiscal year 2019 and the budget for fiscal year 2020. It will also include insight into our Financial Affordability and Sustainability Plan.
