UF Health North
UF Health North makes access to high-quality medical care more convenient for residents
throughout Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia.
Located in North Jacksonville on Max Leggett Parkway near Interstate 95, the UF
Health North campus includes a 92-bed hospital,
24/7 adult and pediatric emergency center, outpatient surgery center and
a medical office building.
UF Health North is the only full-service hospital in North Jacksonville. The facility
features all-private rooms, which studies show promote faster recovery and improve
the patient experience. Here patients receive comprehensive care from UF Health
specialists and surgeons. The hospital provides 12 spacious
labor and delivery suites and two dedicated obstetric operating rooms, opening
in summer 2017, so mothers-to-be can deliver closer to home.

Medical Office Building
More than 20 specialty services
are available at UF Health North’s medical office building, which is staffed by
top UF Health and community physicians. Whether a patient is seeking routine well
care or more advanced treatments, they can find a specialist here to meet their
health care needs. Outpatient lab and diagnostic services are available on-site,
as well as advanced imaging, including 3D digital breast tomosynthesis and the region’s
first open MRI.
Led by certified nurse midwives, the
UF Health Birth Center is a unique addition to the community for mothers
who prefer a natural birth experience. The Birth Center differs from the labor and
delivery unit by offering a home-like environment for expectant mothers to give
birth. It’s the only practice of its kind associated with an academic health center
in the region, and is located in the medical office building next door to the hospital.
UF Health North provides access to advanced technology, like the area’s first open
MRI, with design features that enhance patient comfort. Natural light, which studies
associate with healing, bathes patient care areas and more unexpected places, like
the emergency room, radiology department, perioperative units and the outpatient
surgical suites. The calming design, influenced by the marshlands of Northeast Florida,
includes rooftop green spaces, vistas and interior gardens.
