The Mayo Replacement Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida fulfills Mayo Clinic's dream of creating a fully integrated medical campus with inpatient and outpatient services "under one roof." Comprehensive services and facilities provide specialty care for a full spectrum of illnesses, unite basic and clinical research and offer educational opportunities for healthcare professionals and the community.
The 670,000 square foot teaching and research hospital contains 214 beds in a 6-story tower connected to the existing Mayo building. Most of the patient rooms are private and include a large window seating area with sofa beds for visitors. The large patient room design provides flexibility for equipment and services to be brought to the bedside as the patient's condition warrants.
The main entrance to the hospital features an uplifting, graceful canopy and reflecting pool. The interior corridors are 10 feet wide, providing suitable space for resident physicians making rounds as well as the equipment required in an acute-care, specialty hospital. Another unique feature is the new surgical suite that is built around a central core preventing sterile supplies from crossing paths with used supplies. The intensive care/critical care unit includes approximately 30 patient rooms with the flexibility to decrease or increase in number as patient needs require. Mayo's growing transplant programs, which include bone marrow, liver, pancreas, kidney, heart and lung, are also located in the hospital.
