UF Health Children’s Surgical Center relocates to a new, larger space

Currently located at the Ayers building on Southwest 2nd Avenue, the UF Health Children’s Surgical Center will occupy a newly created, 17,500-square-foot space connected to the UF Health Florida Surgical Center on Hull Road, off Southwest 34th Street.

With its own family friendly entrance and waiting area, the nature-themed design will echo that of the children’s hospital. The new facility will be much larger, and its location next to adult surgical services will enable our teams to be more efficient and share resources. During this construction phase, services at UF Health Florida Surgical Center will continue without interruption. It will open next spring.

“This endeavor reflects our ongoing goal to provide compassionate, quality care for o

ur local community and across North Florida,” said David S. Guzick, M.D., Ph.D., UF senior vice president for health affairs and UF Health president. “The new state-of-the-art children’s surgical center is designed to provide care and support for our youngest patients and their families.”
