The Jacksonville-based health care provider announced Thursday that it will build a full-service hospital on its existing Baptist Clay Medical Campus on Fleming Island.

The facilities there opened in 2013 and include emergency rooms for adults and children, a walk-in surgery center and specialty and imaging services.

Baptist Health expects to spend about $200 million dollars on the new hospital.
