Clay County's new emergency care center at the corner of U.S. 17 and Village Square Parkway in Fleming Island opens Wednesday, and will provide emergency care for the county's residents.
The center will operate 24 hours a day, provide all types of emergency care. It includes 16 treatment rooms, a separate waiting room for children, and child specific medical equipment and imaging capabilities.
There is also a LifeFlight helipad, and an on-site ambulance.
It's part of a 32-acre Baptist Clay Medical Campus, which will include several primary care and specialists in a three-story building connected to the emergency center.
Baptist officials say the $40 million project was built at the request of Clay County residents who wanted to use their services without having to travel all the way to downtown Jacksonville.
