CPPI Begins Construction on UF Health Neighborhood Hospital in Ocala

December 20, 2022

Ocala, Fla. – Charles Perry Partners, Inc. (CPPI) recently began construction on a new neighborhood hospital in Ocala for the University of Florida Health. 

This brand-new 150,000-square-foot facility will be located at NW Blichton Road and NW 35th Avenue Road, enhancing access to a variety of healthcare services and specialized clinic services within the community.

Situated prominently just off Interstate 75 on 28 acres, the three-story medical campus will feature an emergency room, an inpatient unit, an imaging center, surgery services, outpatient clinics, rehabilitation services, a pharmacy, food services, and medical offices. The site will also be master planned to allow for future growth.

“The new hospital is a natural addition that brings UF Health’s highly skilled physicians and sought-after health care to the heart of Marion County,” said David R. Nelson, M.D., senior vice president for health affairs at UF and president of UF Health, in a news release from UF Health.

CPPI has partnered with Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA) and Covider Health on the project. The two firms have collaborated to offer a functional and efficient facility design, which will allow staff to flow between the emergency department and inpatient departments with ease and use inpatient beds as overflow. 

“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to assist UF Health in the construction of yet another cutting-edge medical facility, further enhancing health care services in the North Central Florida community. We look forward to building another chapter in our relationship with UF Health,” said CPPI Vice President/Regional Manager Matt Pinkoson.

The facility is expected to be completed in spring 2024.
