Minor drilling activity is scheduled for tomorrow near the rear of the MRI building on the UF Health north campus at Southwest Archer Road, located across from the UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital and the Pediatric E.R.

The drilling is part of a standard repair process for the soil disturbance experienced in the area earlier this month.

  • Patient services and entrance to the facilities will remain unaffected. MRI services in that facility will proceed as scheduled. There are no expected delays in access to the children’s hospital and Pediatric E.R. as a result of the project.
  • Drilling will begin around 8 a.m.Please expect minor noise throughout the day.

Service Access

In an abundance of caution, the area will be fenced off. Please follow any rerouting signs near the MRI building. 

  • One outbound vehicle traffic lane between UF Health Shands Hospital and UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital will be temporarily closed.
