24-Hour Emergency Department at Wildwood
Construction is tracking on schedule at our new 24-hour emergency department at Wildwood, across the highway from Brownwood Paddock Square in The Villages. The floor slab, structural steel and underground facility infrastructures are now in place. Exterior and interior metal wall studs are going up in conjunction with the overhead wiring and cabling. A back-up power generator (96 hours) and other long-lead items have been ordered and are scheduled to arrive early next month. We expect to complete our Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) inspection in January 2020. We are excited to announce that the building will have USB charging outlets throughout along with two electric vehicle charging stations.
An official groundbreaking ceremony was held on the site of the future 24-hour emergency department at Wildwood, across the highway from Brownwood Paddock Square in The Villages. The $15 million project is expected to be completed in early 2020 to help meet the needs of the growing population in The Villages and Wildwood areas.
