The 9,000-square-foot clinic, which has state-of-the-art equipment and amenities, held a virtual ground-breaking ceremony on June 21, 2023. The facility will be open 12 hours a day, seven days a week, featuring eight examination rooms, two procedure rooms, X-ray facilities and a community room.

On Nov. 30, 2023, people from UF Health, the Alachua County Board of County Commissioners, the Gainesville City Commission and the East Gainesville community gathered for a commemorative signing for the clinic.

The new facility, located next to the Gainesville Technology Entrepreneurship Center, is part of a joint city and county initiative to stimulate growth on the east side of Gainesville. 

The project will eventually include retail stores and a Gainesville Regional Transit System bus transfer station.
