Shortly after Dr. Gianrico Farrugia became CEO of Mayo Clinic’s Florida operations in 2015, the health system announced a partnership with a biotech company to bring a new lung restoration center to Jacksonville. The announcement marked the beginning of a multi-year, multi-phase plan to position Mayo as a medical destination for the southeastern U.S. In all, Mayo plans to spend more than $300 million to expand its Jacksonville campus during the next five years. When completed, the projects will nearly double the space Mayo has for patient care and research in Florida. “There’s an increasing population with an increasing number of serious and complex medical needs,” Farrugia says. “We need to come up with new ways of taking care of them.”
