Save the date: South campus groundbreaking

Mark your calendars to celebrate as we break ground on the site of the UF Health Heart & Vascular Hospital and UF Health Neuromedicine Hospital.

When: Friday, Jan. 23 at 1:30 p.m.
Where: UF Health — Archer Road south campus (east of UF Health Shands Cancer Hospital)

The new heart and vascular and neuromedicine hospitals will be located east of the UF Health Shands Cancer Hospital. They will offer 216 beds, including 120 ICU beds and 20 state-of-the-art ORs; and the site will include a new 600-space parking garage for patients and visitors. Construction will cost approximately $415 million and the hospitals will open in 2018.

The UF Health Shands Board of Directors approved funding in September for the new hospitals and expansion of the south campus. Our dedicated faculty and staff have managed increasingly high patient volumes on our main campus, and these new facilities will enable us to meet steadily growing demands for complex specialty care and to provide an excellent patient experience.

Please join us to celebrate this exciting milestone and our commitment to caring for Florida’s hearts and minds.
