After 18 months of construction, Baptist Health will welcome patients to the new $200-million, 11-story facility in December, expanding services offered by Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville and Wolfson Children's Hospital. Boasting 338,000 square feet of space, the J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Tower features state-of-art surgical suites with intra-operative CT and MRI imaging capabilities, one of the first of its kind in North America. The 167 patient beds are all in private rooms, with more than 300 square feet to allow patients comforting places to heal with their families. Here is a behind the scenes look behind downtown Jacksonville's newest highrise.
