We're expanding! Jacksonville Beach Pediatric Care Center has grown and we are adding a new location. Whether you live at the beaches or in town, on September 6th you can experience the new Pediatric Care Center conveniently located off 9A at Baymeadows Road.
The new center boasts 4082 square feet with 8 sick rooms and 4 well rooms! We are also implementing a new state-of-the-art Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system featuring online appointment scheduling & e-prescriptions. This system will automate our medical records helping us to become paperless, and offering access to records at either location.
An expansion also means new staff! We are hiring one new doctor and four medical assistants to staff the new office. Dr. Benitez will still see patients at both locations.
This is all great news, and we hope you are just as excited as we are! Here we are sharing answers to a few of the questions commonly asked during the transition; if you have a question that you don't see here, please let us know!
