Florida Hospital Flagler Breaks Ground on Construction of New Facility
Florida Hospital Flagler hosted a ceremonial groundbreaking on Wednesday, September 28, at the future site of Florida Hospital Flagler Medical Plaza in Palm Coast.
Florida Hospital Flagler purchased 3 acres in the Cobblestone Village in July 2011 and construction on this $15 million investment is scheduled to be complete by the summer of 2012. When complete, the Florida Hospital Flagler Medical Plaza will be a 34,000 square-foot facility, complete with physician suites and outpatient hospital services, such as rehabilitation, imaging, laboratory, and a women’s center.
“Several uses were proposed for this property, but none of them seemed quite right,” said Palm Coast Mayor John Netts. “This is better than we could have imagined. This will make it easier for our people to access the special kind of care available at Florida Hospital Flagler.”
A brief presentation and blessing of the site marked the beginning of this project to bring the latest in health care technology and compassionate care to Palm Coast.
“Over the last several years, Florida Hospital Flagler has continued to grow, adding new services such as minimally invasive robotic surgery and PCI (Percutaneous Coronary Intervention, also known as interventional cardiac care),” said David Ottati, Florida Hospital Flagler CEO. “We had run out of space at our main campus and this will be a good location for us. We appreciate the outpouring of support from the community and we plan to bring even more new services to the area.”
