Mayo Clinic to begin $100M expansion project at Jacksonville campus this summer

Rochester, Md.-based Mayo Clinic will inject $100 million into its Jacksonville, Fla., campus through the construction of a center designed to address complex cancer, neurologic and neurosurgical care, according to the Jacksonville Business Journal.

Construction on the 150,000-square-foot facility will begin this summer. While the center will be four stories high to start, it will have the potential to become up to 11 stories, according to the report.

Two floors will be dedicated to hematology and oncology, which will effectively double the size of the departments. One floor will be used for neurology and neurosurgery and another area will be used for chemotherapy. Mayo Clinic will also begin to work on a positron emission tomography radiochemistry facility, as well as increase the number of its clinical trials.

Mayo Clinic expects about 126,000 people to visit the new center in its first year of operation, according to the report. 

Additionally, Mayo Clinic will hire 40 physicians and scientists, as well as 250 allied health employees, over the next five years to support the new facility. The health system already employs 5,351 people in Florida, according to the report.
