The Mayo clinic in Florida is getting an $8.8 million upgrade to its orthopedias and other medical services.
The announcement was made Wednesday at the North Florida Orthopedic Clinic in Orlando, where the new orthopedist is set to start work in 2019.
“This is a great step forward in our efforts to bring new doctors and surgeons to the United States, and we are looking forward to making it a success,” said Dr. David W. Coughlin, the orthopedists chief executive officer.
The facility is expected to have 10,000 patients by 2020.
In April, the Mayo Clinic announced a $3 billion expansion to its clinic in Gainesville, Florida.
The new building will add 2,000 beds and will include a new office, an additional orthopedology department, and a new emergency department.
The hospital is also getting a new conference center, which will serve as the primary hospital for its pediatric orthopedians.
