DPR Construction has been issued separate building permits totalling $152 million to construct a hotel/restaurant/spa and surgical center in Wildwood.

The projects will expand the The Villages Health Brownwood Care Center with a seven-story, 151 room hotel with conference area, spa, pool, restaurant and a four-story outpatient surgical center with coffee shop. The 285,000 sq. ft. surgical center permit at this stage is for footings only, but it has a $70 million value. The hotel permit is set at $52 million.

The project has been designed by Earl Swensson Associates based in Nashville, TN and the project is expected to take two years to complete.

Other participants in the design include: Civil engineerFarner, Barley & Associates Inc.; mechanical, electrical and plumbingPhoenix Design Group; and structural engineerStructural Design Group.

The center will be built on a site that is approximately 31 acres in The Villages Brownwood Paddock Square Town Center directly fronting Route 44, and will also be accessible by golf cart, allowing ease and accessibility for more than 120,000 existing residents of The Villages and the broader community, Medical Construction & Design reported earlier.

Anchor Health Properties began working with The Villages Health in 2011 when the company helped to develop a primary care model that changed the delivery of service to patients. Six years later, the Center for Advanced Healthcare at Brownwood development is an extension of the successful model of care.

The center represents the combination of customer service and the “retailization” of healthcare by purposefully integrating a hotel, spa and conference center. All connected by a common courtyard, the first level of the center will be an active environment incorporating a retail pharmacy, lab, central registration and education and resource center to aid in the coordination of care for patients as well as other complementary amenities. The surgery center will have a discreet exit out to a connector that leads to the hotel with a dedicated patient concierge, where patients can stay pre or post procedure if they choose.
