Virtual Tour – UF Health North

Welcome to UF Health North. Our state-of-the-art outpatient medical complex is located off I-95 near River City Marketplace in North Jacksonville. Bringing convenient, high-quality medical care to residents in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. This six-story facility features a 24/7 full-service emergency room, outpatient surgery center and birth center, as well as advanced imaging and other diagnostic services. The building also includes
offices for physicians who offer more than 20 specialty services. We take great pride in the building’s contemporary, calming design which is influenced by the region’s wetlands. Here’s a behind-the-scenes tour of the first two floors of our spectacular facility. Let’s start with registration. The registration area features soundproof bays with overhead white noise. This technology helps ensure privacy and confidentiality during the registration process. The emergency room visitor lounge offers a comfortable, aesthetically appealing environment that’s even accommodating to pediatric
patients and visitors. The 24/7 full-service ER features 28 private rooms and much advanced technology. And thanks in large part to lightwells throughout the department, 93 percent of the ER has access to natural light. The imaging reception area provides much comfort as well, with separate lounges for women and men. The women also have access to a special dressing area. Digital x-rays are available instantly, and
can be shared with radiology specialists anywhere. Women’s diagnostic technology includes screening and digital mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and digital breast tomosynthesis. Our state-of-the art imaging equipment also includes a 64-slice CT scanner and a PET/CT scanner, as well as one of the region’s first open high-field MRIs. This device is designed to be less intimidating for children, and more accommodating for all body sizes. All of our advanced imaging equipment generates superior image quality and provides maximum patient comfort. The on-site full-service laboratory operates 24/7, helping ensure quick turnaround of test results. The lab offers a comprehensive range of pathology and laboratory services, including blood tests. Visitors and staff can grab freshly prepared foods, snacks and beverages at the Bistro Cafe. And just down the hall, employees can work out at our fitness center, which features showers and lockers. The Family Learning Center has computers available for patients, visitors and staff, allowing users to check email and surf the Internet. Outpatient surgery is located on the second floor. There’s a rooftop terrace near the surgical waiting area where visitors can get fresh air and enjoy the view. On the day of surgery, patients are escorted to pre-op rooms to prepare for their procedures. All 16 rooms are private and some of them even offer a view the facility’s rooftop gardens. The surgical and procedure areas include two endoscopy procedure rooms, five operating rooms, an interventional radiology suite and a cardiac catheterization laboratory. Following surgery, patients are taken to the post-anesthesia care area. In this 16-bay recovery area, nurses and other providers monitor patients as they awake from anesthesia. Phase II recovery rooms are available for patients requiring extended recoveries. Twelve private rooms each have their own bathroom. A separate elevator and exit provide patients with privacy as they are discharged after surgery. UF Health North is the result of many years of planning, with the aim of bringing robust medical services to an underserved community. The next phase will be the construction of a 92-bed inpatient tower which will sit next to the existing medical complex. As you can see, there’s much happening at UF Health. Stay tuned.
