Cleveland Clinic announced on Monday the opening of their Coral Springs Family Health Center, a new 73,000 square-foot facility offering specialty care, outpatient surgery, endoscopy and advanced imaging services.
The $53 million state-of-the-art facility located at the southeast corner of University Drive and the Sawgrass expressway has 40 exam rooms, four operating rooms – plus two in reserve, two endoscopy suites, 24 prep and recovery bays, 15 full-time physicians, 20 rotating physicians, and 95 total clinical and administrative staff.
Services spanning 17 medical specialties are available at the Coral Springs Family Health Center, including breast, colorectal, general, gynecological, hand, orthopaedic, ear, nose and throat, plastic, urological, and vascular surgery.
The addition of the Coral Springs Family Health Center is part of a $302 million capital expansion, driven by growth and the demand for Cleveland Clinic’s services in Florida.
“The Coral Springs Family Health Center provides convenient access to world-class care to residents in Coral Springs, Parkland, as well those in northern Broward and southern Palm Beach County,” said Wael Barsoum, M.D., CEO and President of Cleveland Clinic Florida. “We continue to build on our 30-year history of providing an advanced level of care to patients in South Florida, and we are proud that a growing number of patients are seeking the specialized services we provide.”
The Coral Springs Family Health Center benefits from the expertise of Cleveland Clinic’s health system in Ohio where it operates five similar centers that feature specialty and outpatient surgical care.
Cleveland Clinic Florida will host a community open house to celebrate the opening of the new center on Saturday, July 21, 2018 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Included are self-guided tours, health screenings and risk assessments, food trucks and children-friendly activities.
Reflecting Cleveland Clinic’s “patient first” philosophy, the patient experience was paramount in the design of the Coral Springs Family Health Center, which maximizes natural light in patient care areas to reduce recovery times and improve wellbeing. In addition, a 45-piece fine art collection of diverse subject matter, media and imagery, was chosen specifically to enhance comfort and mood and reduce patients’ stress levels. Seven self-check-in kiosks provide an added convenience, streamlining the registration process for patients and their families.
Cleveland Clinic has locations in Weston, Fort Lauderdale, Parkland, West Palm Beach, Wellington, and Palm Beach Gardens.
The Coral Springs Family Health Center is located at 5701 N. University Drive in Coral Springs.
