Gresham Smith Selected to Design Flagler Health+ Medical Campus in Durbin Park
Gresham Smith is proud to announce that the firm has been selected by Flagler Health+ and UF Health to design a comprehensive health and wellness campus in Durbin Park, Florida. As part of a design-build team, the firm will partner with Stellar on the five-year, $150-million project, which aims to expand access to high-quality, patient-centric care for the northeast Florida community.
The first project in Flagler Heath+’s collaboration with UF Health, the 42-acre medical campus is strategically located between Interstate 95 and State Road 9B. The site may eventually include hospital facilities, medical residency programs and other educational opportunities for medical professionals. Discussions also are planned regarding ambulatory medical services that would expand the accessibility of care.
“Stellar is excited to be the design-builder for this innovative new concept in health and wellness,” said Richard Lovelace, Senior Vice President, Commercial at Stellar. “After building two Health Villages for Flagler Health+ at Murabella and Nocatee, we are proud to continue our partnership [with the organization] and help bring comprehensive medical care to northern St. Johns County.”
“Gresham Smith is honored to partner with Stellar on this transformative project for the northeast Florida community,” said Rick Bouchereau, AIA, LEED AP, Vice President at Gresham Smith. “Our design for the Durbin Park campus will create a strong sense of place and embody Flagler Health+’s goals for a healthy community. Using human-centered design principles, we’ll focus on the needs of the growing community, while also designing a space that utilizes the latest technology to enhance quality of care and has flexibility for the future. When complete, the new full-service health and wellness campus will meet the healthcare needs of the Durbin Park community for generations to come.”
Groundbreaking is planned for fall 2020. The project will be completed in three phases and is anticipated to complete by 2025.
