UF Health East, under construction at J. Turner Butler Boulevard and Kernan Boulevard, is a multispecialty center on the second floor of a three-story facility in collaboration with Jax Spine & Pain Centers. UF Health East will serve the city’s Southeast quadrant, including the Beaches. The building also features a 24,000-square-foot free-standing ambulatory surgery center, which will be Jacksonville’s largest.
The surgery center will feature four operating rooms, four procedure rooms and two endoscopy suites. The ambulatory surgery center will be home to six subspecialties, including neurosurgery, general surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, gastrointestinal, orthopedics, and obstetrics and gynecology. The surgery center will be located on the first floor and will also feature a free-standing MRI.
The medical office space on the second floor includes 15,000 square feet with 41 exam rooms. This practice is built for improved efficiency and experience not only for patients but also for our physicians and staff. Most of the practices opening at UF Health East are moving from Building One at UF Health Emerson Medical Plaza, and in addition to pre- and post-op consultations, office appointments will be available for gastroenterology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics and podiatry, obstetrics and gynecology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, and vascular surgery.
