UF Health now offers north Gainesville families enhanced services with the opening of its newest pediatric location.

UF Health Pediatrics – Magnolia Parke, the first of its kind in the area, completed renovations and opened in July 2013. The 6,500-square-foot practice houses 14 exam rooms, a vision and hearing screening room and a procedure room. Four UF Health pediatricians, nine residents and a nurse practitioner provide complete primary care for children of all ages, including immunizations, physicals, hearing and vision screenings and sick visits.

“Along with our other locations, UF Health Pediatrics – Magnolia Parke provides high quality primary care services that are easily accessible in Gainesville and surrounding counties,” said Sanjeev Tuli, M.D., chief of general pediatrics at the University of Florida. “As a leader in resident education, the new practice enables us to teach evidence-based clinical pediatrics to prepare future community and academic pediatricians, while also providing optimal care for our smallest patients.”

“The opening of UF Health Pediatrics – Magnolia Parke is another example of our commitment to helping children of our community get the very best healthcare that they deserve,” said Scott Rivkees, M.D., chair of the UF College of Medicine department of pediatrics “This practice will enable us to deliver care for boys and girls in Northwest Gainesville – a new option for families in that area. We anticipate the new facility and its providers will bring smiles and bright eyes to parents and children, alike.”
