Baptist Health South Florida broke ground Wednesday, Feb. 1, on a new medical arts facility in Marathon, adjacent to Baptist’s Fishermen’s Community Hospital.

The property formerly housed Monroe County’s Marathon library branch, but BHSF brokered a property trade with the library system three years ago to acquire the parcel in exchange for the site of the new library, at 3490 Overseas Highway.
