A New Student Health Care Center for the Gators

The New Student Health Care Center (SHCC) is now a UF Health outpatient health clinic located in a highly congested and trafficked area of the main campus on Stadium Road at the University of Florida. The new facility consists of approximately 46,000 sf of state-0f-the-art equipment and services.

This beautiful new facility houses all previous functions of the previous Student Health Care Center (Infirmary), including primary medical and psychiatric care, pharmacy services, a women’s clinic, and various other ancillary services. The new Center now offers Sports Medicine and Acute Care, Physical Therapy, Lab, X-Ray, and  ENV Services, as well as a demonstration kitchen and a large outdoor patio overlooking the O’Connell Center. Administration, accounting, research, and marketing are now all co-located in the building as well to improve efficiency.

A collaborative design between the user groups, UF, the design team, and the construction team was a critical factor in completing this project, considering the need to pause design during COVID-19 in an effort to include an optional infectious control unit that can be isolated from the rest of the building.

This will be the first Well Certified building on the University of Florida campus.
