History of Fleming Island Surgery Center
The center opened in 2006. It was started by a specialist who wanted to work independently of the hospital. So, a consultant was hired to assist in building the center. Then various other specialists were recruited. The centers cases grew to over seven hundred a month. This is where we stand today with heavy emphasis on GI, General Surgery, Ophthalmology (including the use of FEMTO, the next evolution in cataract surgery) and now Orthopedics. The center could withstand 900 cases a month and continues to grow and provide quality care with a smile.
We service the area of south Jacksonville, Orange Park, Green Cove Springs, Palatka and the surrounding communities. The patient population includes pediatrics, adult and seniors.
