Jacksonville, Fla. (Sept.1,2023) – Residents in the rapidly growing central and western areas of Nassau County will soon have access to Nassau Crossing Endoscopy Center, where they can get the most advanced colonoscopies and upper endoscopies in a convenient, patient-centered environment.
The 20,000-square-foot Borland Groover Medical Office and Nassau Crossing Endoscopy Center will open in fall 2024 within the new Baptist Nassau Crossing Medical Campus located in Yulee, just east of I-95 on State Road 200. The Borland Groover medical office will offer 12 exam rooms and expanded infusion services providing treatment to patients with autoimmune disorders, such as Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, plaque psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis for Nassau County residents.
Of particular importance will be the ability for residents to get expert screening and diagnostic colonoscopies at this easily accessible Borland Groover location. Colon cancer screenings can detect cancer in its early stages, when survival rates are about 90%. The American Cancer Society recommends colonoscopies starting at age 45, or younger if there is a history of colon cancer in the family.
“We are thrilled to join forces with Baptist Health and introduce this remarkable center that will provide patients with the highest quality care from our dedicated providers and staff,” said Dr. Kyle Etzkorn, CEO of Borland Groover. “This collaboration exemplifies our shared commitment to delivering exceptional health care services that are accessible, comprehensive, and patient-focused. By expanding our reach, we aim to enhance the quality of care and improve the lives of our patients in Nassau County and beyond.”
Baptist Health broke ground in March 2023 on the Baptist Nassau Crossing Medical Campus, which in addition to the endoscopy center, will house a freestanding Baptist & Wolfson Emergency Center, as well as outpatient imaging, primary care, behavioral health, and specialty physician offices. The 56,588-square-foot campus is designed for future expansion to serve the growing needs of the community.
“Baptist Health has always been committed to making high-quality health care easily accessible to the community,” said Catherine Graham, MSH, senior vice president of clinical service lines and ambulatory business development at Baptist Health. “Baptist Nassau Crossing Medical Campus will be a convenient hub with a wide range of medical services for all ages.”
Baptist Nassau Crossing Medical Campus is located about 13 miles east of Baptist Medical Center Nassau, an award-winning hospital serving the Nassau County and Southeast Georgia communities for nearly three decades.
“Baptist Health is committed to providing a total system of adult and pediatric care for everyone in our community,” said Ed Hubel, FACHE, hospital president of Baptist Medical Center Nassau. “It’s been incredible to see the growth here in Nassau County, and we appreciate residents’ trust in us to help make the community an even healthier place to live.”
