The Watersound Origins community will soon welcome a new partner offering healthcare services. The St. Joe Company and Sacred Heart Health System have entered into a lease for construction of a new healthcare facility at the entrance of the Watersound Origins community.
This new facility is expected to offer residents a wide range of health care services as well as convenient access for the 30A corridor.
The new healthcare facility, conveniently located along Highway 98, initially plans to open as a 6,700 square foot multi-specialty ambulatory clinic offering primary care and OB/GYN services. Plans for the healthcare facility would allow for future expansion to 13,000 square feet of space offering additional specialty care services.
Construction of the facility is slated to begin this Fall with an estimated completion date in 2019.
“We are pleased to continue our relationship with Sacred Heart to provide quality and accessible healthcare services to Watersound Origins homeowners and the residents of South Walton County,” said Jorge Gonzalez, President & Chief Executive Officer of St. Joe.
“This new facility supports our mission to offer residents of our community convenient access to expert healthcare covering a wide range of needs,” said Roger Hall, President of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast. “Offering quality services at a convenient location is a priority for Sacred Heart.”
In the late 1990s, St. Joe donated land for the current site of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast located in Miramar Beach. For more information about Watersound Origins visit their website.
