TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - A new full-service medical facility on the Southside of Tallahassee broke ground Tuesday.

Representatives with Care Point Health and Wellness Center announced that the $11 million medical facility is intended to function as a one-stop medical home for patients in the area.

They said they are positioned to serve the Southside area of Tallahassee to include Southwood, Crawfordville and Woodville. 

“We recognized the real need for a conveniently-located, full-service medical facility in this location,” said Rob Renzi, Executive Director of Care Point. “Ease of access for our state, city and county employees along with neighboring communities south of Tallahassee put us in a position for great success.”

The new one-stop-shop building will be 27,000 square feet and will include several servicesL dental, medical, OBGYN, labs, pharmacy, case management, substance abuse and mental health treatment.

The center will be located adjacent to Big Bend Cares, on 4 acres at South Monroe and Adams streets and Magnolia Drive. The project, built by PSBI, will take around a year to complete. 

The facility will be open in the fall of 2017.
