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, and an outpatient multispecialty
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 homelike 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.
