The St. Joe Company, Florida State University and Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare celebrated the construction kickoff Tuesday of a health care campus in Panama City Beach that will bring together clinicians, researchers and students to meet the rapidly increasing need for medical care in the Florida Panhandle.

The FSU Health-Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare Medical Campus is located on an 87-acre parcel of land, just minutes from the Latitude Margaritaville Watersound community, a 55-plus community that recently sold its 1,000th home.

“Today’s celebration represents a very important step forward for our community,” said Jorge Gonzalez, president and CEO of The St. Joe Company. “This medical campus, backed by the expertise of Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare and Florida State University, is a crucial element for supporting the health and well-being of residents and visitors in every stage of life. It also has the potential to create synergistic opportunities between research, education, and clinical delivery, to enhance the quality of life throughout the region and beyond.”

Gonzalez, O’Bryant and McCullough were joined by U.S. Rep. Neal Dunn, R-FL, and Panama City Beach Mayor Mark Sheldon as well as TMH Vice President and Chief Health Operations Officer Andrew Starr and other local officials from the Bay County area.
