PONTE VEDRA, Fla. – Baptist Health is planning to open a family practice office in the Nocatee Town Center.

Baptist Health recently purchased close to an acre in the Nocatee Town Center for a family practice office. The new office will be off Crosswater Parkway in St. Johns County and will include up to three physicians providing primary care for both adults and children.

Construction is planned to start in late summer with the office opening in early 2015.

"Our intent is for this new location to provide the growing Nocatee community with another close connection to the comprehensive care available within the Baptist Health system," said Edward Sim, Baptist Health's president of physician integration.

The site of the future Baptist Primary Care office in Nocatee is located less than 10 miles from Baptist Medical Center South, which opened in 2005 to serve families in southern Duval and northern St. Johns counties.
