St. Joe and Sacred Heart Announce Plans for a New Healthcare Facility at the Watersound Origins Community


The Watersound Origins community will soon welcome a new partner
offering healthcare services. Commercial Real Estate Development, LLC, a
subsidiary of The St. Joe Company ("St. Joe") and Sacred Heart Health
System ("Sacred Heart"), a leading provider of high quality healthcare
to children and adults in Northwest Florida, have entered into a lease
for construction of a new healthcare facility at the entrance of the
Watersound Origins community.

The new healthcare facility, conveniently located along Highway 98,
initially plans to open as a 6,700 square foot multi-specialty
ambulatory clinic offering primary care and OB/GYN services. Plans for
the healthcare facility would allow for future expansion to 13,000
square feet of space offering additional specialty care services.

Design collaboration is currently underway between the parties with the
expectation that construction of the facility will begin this Fall, with
an estimated completion date in 2019.

"This new facility supports our mission to offer residents of our
community convenient access to expert healthcare covering a wide range
of needs," said Roger Hall, President of Sacred Heart Hospital on the
Emerald Coast. "Offering quality services at a convenient location is a
priority for Sacred Heart."

"We are pleased to continue our relationship with Sacred Heart to
provide quality and accessible healthcare services to Watersound Origins
homeowners and the residents of South Walton County," said Jorge
Gonzalez, President & Chief Executive Officer of St. Joe. "This new
facility is only the beginning of a much larger plan to meet the
expected commercial needs of the residents in the Watersound community."

Future commercial activity planned at the Watersound Origins community
includes retail, restaurant, and office space. For more information
