Mayo Clinic will invest $70.5 million to add four floors for a total of five to Mayo Building South and remodel existing space in the Davis Building on its Florida campus. The project will add 80,000 new square feet and renovate 40,000 existing square feet.

With completion expected in 2019, the building expansion will provide space for cardiovascular, cardiology and cardio-thoracic surgery program areas, expansion of the spine center and pain rehabilitation programs and additional surgical rooms. It will also provide space and equipment to establish a molecular imaging center for radiology and laboratory expansion.

Over the next five years, Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus will add about 300,000 square feet of space. In preparation for this new expansive growth, Mayo Clinic is working with the North Florida Transportation Planning Organization and Florida Department of Transportation on improvements for traffic around the campus.
