The Mayo Clinic announced it will make a $100 million investment in its campus in Jacksonville including construction of a 150,000-square-foot medical building and a radiochemistry facility.

Mayo said the new medical building will house services for complex cancer care and neurologic and neurosurgical care.

The organization also said it also will build a PET (positive emission technology) radiochemistry facility at its 400-acre campus in Jacksonville.

The project will add approximately 40 physicians and scientists and 250 other employees to the Mayo Clinic payroll in Jacksonville, where the health care organization already has 5,351 employees.

The Rochester, Minnesota-based Mayo Clinic, a nonprofit founded 150 years ago, has a campus in Arizona in addition to its Jacksonville campus.

Mayo opened its Jacksonville location on donated land in 1986 with 35 doctors and 145 support staff in a single four-floor building. [Jacksonville Daily Record] Mike Seemuth
