Baptist Health Care Building $6 Million Medical Park
Baptist Health Care (BHC) is constructing a new $6 million medical park to better serve the Greater Pensacola area. Baptist Medical Park – Airport will be Baptist’s third medical park and will be located near the entrance of the Pensacola International Airport at 5100 North 12th Avenue in Pensacola, Fla.
Baptist Medical Park - Airport will be a two-story complex featuring more than 24,000 square feet of services including Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, Baptist Heart & Vascular Institute, as well as Baptist Medical Group primary and specialty physicians. The facility will also offer clinical laboratory and imaging services.
Urgent Care for minor illnesses and injuries will be a key service offering on the campus. With connectivity to the Andrews Institute, patients with orthopaedic injuries will have on-site access for a more seamless transition to specialty care when necessary.
“We are very excited about improving access to Baptist's services in our community. This facility will be convenient to neighborhoods and businesses on the east side of town, as well as visitors traveling to our area utilizing our airport and surrounding hotels,” said Mark Faulkner, President and CEO, Baptist Health Care. “Baptist continues to grow to better serve the needs of Northwest Florida."
Several local companies are working with BHC on the project, including George Koper Associates, architect; Catalyst CRE, developer; and Williams Brown, contractor. The medical park is projected to be open in early 2017. Currently, BHC operates three hospitals, two medical parks, Andrews Institute for Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine, Lakeview Center, Baptist Medical Group and Baptist Heart & Vascular Institute.
