Flagler Hospital buys in Nocatee

Flagler Hospital announced it will start construction of Flagler Health Village in Nocatee for completion and opening in summer 2020 on 4 acres next to Nocatee Town Center. 

Flagler Hospital Inc. bought the property Nov. 20 from TC Development LLC, led by President Jed Davis. The Davis family launched the Nocatee development on 14,000 acres it owns. The deed specifies the land for the Nocatee/Town Center Health and Wellness Center.

The village will comprise a family practice, specialty care, women’s health services, a community education and partnership center and green space for lifestyle and art activities.

“Our health villages are designed to advance the physical, social and economic health of the communities we serve,” said Flagler Hospital President and CEO Jason Barrett in a statement. 

A Community Health Advisory Council for the Flagler Health Village at Nocatee will work with schools, businesses, residents and others to develop a “customized healthy community plan” for Nocatee.
