Construction progresses on new hospitals

UF Health’s new heart and vascular and neuromedicine hospitals are taking shape on Archer Road just east of the UF Health Shands Cancer Hospital. Site work began in January 2015 and the hospitals are expected to open in 2018.

The UF Health Heart & Vascular Hospital will focus solely on patients with heart and vascular needs while the UF Health Neuromedicine Hospital will focus on patients with neurologic needs. Housed in one contiguous building, each hospital’s focus will give patients concentrated care for some of the most complex health conditions. Consolidating cardiac and neurologic experts in one location will help to provide shorter procedure times for patients, provide a variety of treatment options and promote shorter hospital stays and faster recovery.
