UF’s New Student Health Care Center
The New Student Health Care Center (SHCC) is an outpatient health clinic located in a highly congested and trafficked area of the main campus on Stadium Road on the SE corner of (former) Perry Baseball Field. The project consists of approximately 46,000 sf on the campus of the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. This facility will house all current functions of the existing Student Health Care Center (Infirmary), including primary medical and psychiatric care, pharmacy, women’s clinic, and various other ancillary services. The Center will consist of Sports Medicine and Acute Care, Physical Therapy, Lab, X-Ray, Pharmacy, ENV Services, as well as Primary care, Women’s Health, Psychiatry, immunizations, nutrition counseling, administration, research, marketing and conference rooms. Collaborative design creativity between the user groups, UF, design team and the construction team was a critical factor in completing this project considering the need to pause design in an effort to include an 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.
