Dana B. Kenyon Company (DBK) and Gresham Smith are pleased to announce the completion of a new multispecialty surgery center, home to Jax Spine & Pain Centers and UF Health Jacksonville, under the direction of UF Jacksonville Physicians, Inc. The largest free-standing multispecialty surgery center in the region, the 54,000-square-foot facility was designed and constructed to offer specialized health care services, outpatient surgeries convenient to the community, interventional spine procedures and pain management. DBK delivered this facility using their design-build approach and partnered with Gresham Smith, the architect and interior designer, and ETM, the civil engineer.
Highly visible from J. Turner Butler Boulevard, one of Jacksonville’s busiest roadways, the new facility is a modern landmark on Jacksonville’s southeast side. The building can be seen from every angle on surrounding roadways, which required camouflaging the back-of-house functions. Wood accents and earth tones on the building’s modern exterior provide aesthetic warmth, and the glass and wood canopy over the main entrance offers shelter from the elements and creates a sense of arrival.
Always keeping patient comfort and convenience in mind during design and construction, the main lobby features warm earth tones, durable terrazzo flooring, and a custom wood feature wall with integrated lighting to create a relaxing, spa-like environment. The first floor houses an ambulatory surgery center with four operating rooms, two endoscopy rooms, a separate pain procedure suite with four procedure rooms and a dedicated MRI suite. Visitors to UF Health clinics on the second floor enjoy views of the large green roof while waiting, and standardized exam rooms organized around centralized work hubs create an efficient, pleasant patient experience. Located on the third floor, Jax Spine & Pain Center includes exam rooms, two procedure rooms, infusion rooms, a lab, offices, staff support spaces and open waiting areas with large windows and views of the surrounding neighborhood.
This project continues Dana B. Kenyon/Gresham Smith’s partnership with Jax Spine & Pain Centers. The firms previously designed and constructed the CenterOne Surgery Center and Medical Office Building on Centurion Road.
