AUGUSTINE, Fla—Stellar has broken ground on the new Flagler Health+ campus in St. Johns County’s Durbin Park development. The 42.5-acre health and wellness campus will feature a state-of-the-art hospital and outpatient surgery center as well as the signature Flagler Health+ Village concept.

Stellar, which provides award-winning construction management at-risk, design-build and general contracting services for a range of commercial and public sector markets, has partnered with architectural firm Gresham Smith for the six-year campus project. Outpatient clinical services are slated to open in early 2023, with completion of the entire three-phase project expected in 2027.

“Stellar is proud to be the design-builder for this new comprehensive health and wellness campus,” said Richard Lovelace, Senior Vice President, Commercial at Stellar. “After building two Health Villages for Flagler Health+ at Murabella and Nocatee, we are proud to continue our partnership and help bring innovative medical care to the Durbin Park community.”

The health village will incorporate family medicine, specialty care, urgent care, imaging, laboratory services, healthy lifestyle programming and community engagement space with an emphasis on integrating nature and technology to enhance experiences. Flagler Health+ Durbin Park will also include a premier wellness facility, walking trails and retail offerings.

“We are creating a premier health and wellness destination. The campus has been designed to create a sense of community, deliver uniquely personalized experiences, and achieve the best possible health outcomes for all people,” stated Flagler Health+ President and CEO Jason Barrett. “We are proud of our 130-year legacy of service to St. Johns County and look forward to further advancing physical, social and economic health for area residents with this new offering.”

The property is located between Interstate 95 and State Road 9B and is part of GATE Lands’ larger Durbin Park Development.

Flagler Health+ purchased the property located between Interstate 95 and State Road 9B from GATE Lands, the real estate subsidiary of GATE Petroleum Company. It is anticipated that the campus will add approximately 1,300 jobs to the area at completion of its buildout.
