Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Inc., the country’s largest privately held hospital company, recently received the go ahead from the state of Florida to build a new hospital on the west side of Jacksonville.

The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration granted the Certificate of Need (CON) in recent weeks for the future West Jacksonville Medical Center to be built near an area called the Cecil Commerce Center. The hospital is expected to cost between $100 million and $130 million, HCA officials say.

HCA’s plans call for the building of a three-story, 85-bed community hospital flanked by a 200,000 square foot medical office building (MOB). The hospital campus would provide an emergency department, a cardiac catheterization lab, an obstetrical unit, operating rooms, an intensive care unit (ICU), a medical/surgical unit and diagnostics services, including MRI and CT scans.
