The expansion, which is expected to take 18 months to complete, will add 30 new patient rooms, eight intensive care beds and an additional cardiac procedure room. The project is currently in the initial planning stages and does not have an exact start date yet. The expansion also includes a catheterization lab for specific heart procedures. “This additional space will enable us to provide our community with an even greater level of compassionate, personalized care close to home,” said James Machado, president of St. Vincent’s Clay County. “In the nearly five years we’ve been open, Clay County has continued to grow, and we are committed to growing along with it, in turn providing additional job opportunities for the area, as well.” St. Vincent’s Clay County opened in 2013 and an expansion project that doubled the hospital’s size was completed in 2016. “We are committed to increasing access to care for everyone in the communities we are blessed to serve, and the time is right to ensure we’re keeping pace with the tremendous growth we’re experiencing in service to our friends and neighbors in Clay County,” said Tom VanOsdol, president and CEO of Ascension Florida, which owns the hospital. “By expanding the hospital’s capacity by nearly 30 percent and adding an additional procedure room for our cardiologists, we will be even better equipped to provide our patients with the best care possible without having to leave their home community.” Click here to read more about healthcare in Clay.
