Openings, expansion and a relocation highlight recent activities across the practice plan.
Much has transpired over the past few months across the practice plan, University of Florida Jacksonville Physicians. Following are some of the highlights:
UF HEALTH FAMILY MEDICINE – CRYSTAL SPRINGS
In early February, we held an open house for UF Health Family Medicine – Crystal Springs, a new practice on Jacksonville’s Westside off Crystal Springs Road.
The practice is led by Medical Director Sofia Muenyi, M.D., who is board-certified in family medicine and treats patients of all ages, from infants to senior citizens. In addition to general health care services, she provides women’s health services and management of chronic medical conditions, such as arthritis, asthma, depression, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Same-day acute care appointments are available in addition to scheduled appointments.
UF HEALTH PSYCHIATRY – SAN JOSE
Also in February, UF Health Psychiatry – Dupont Station changed its name and moved to become UF Health Psychiatry – San Jose. The new location on San Jose Boulevard offers nearly 5,000 square feet of practice space, serving primarily child and adolescent patients.
The practice, led by Elise M. Fallucco, M.D., offers individual and family psychotherapy sessions. The larger space creates room to grow and increases the capacity for providing psychiatric and psychological evaluations for conditions such as ADHD, anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder.
Plans are to increase the number of providers, which, as of February, stood at three psychiatrists, one psychologist, three therapists, an advanced practice registered nurse and a physician assistant.
UF HEALTH IMAGING CENTER – BAYMEADOWS
At the end of February, we held a ribbon-cutting for UF Health Imaging Center – Baymeadows, located on Jacksonville’s Southside. The new 4,000-square-foot facility, which officially opened in early March, offers bone densitometry, or DEXA, 3D screening, mammography, ultrasound and X-ray.
The practice provides the highest level of imaging services using leading-edge technology with a goal of providing a stress-free, comfortable experience for patients of all ages.
UF HEALTH WILDLIGHT
At UF Health Wildlight, more than 2,000 appointments were completed at the ambulatory facility in the first five weeks after it opened in December. Services offered are urgent care, dentistry, family medicine, imaging, laboratory, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics and psychiatry.
Meanwhile, UF Health continues construction on the second facility at Wildlight, a rehabilitation services building that will feature a YMCA. UF Health providers and staff will offer musculoskeletal physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy and rehabilitation services for children.
This is an exciting time for our practice plan, which is expanding its reach across Northeast Florida and even Southeast Georgia. As we grow, though, let’s always remember to keep the patients first in all we do. Patient-centered care is essential to actualizing our vision to be the region’s most valued health care asset.
