Scope of Work

Senior management of R.M. Woodworth & Associates (initially during their tenure with CBRE) worked with the University of Florida and UF Health Shands Hospital in the design and development of a new hotel adjacent to the Hospital complex. In addition to providing advisory services to senior leadership, our team completed a market study for the project. The team was engaged to provide advisory services during construction and pre-opening, as well as asset management after opening. In addition to oversight of the development, our team conducted a formal RFQ and RFP process to identify and select a management company, after which we negotiated the management agreement between the Hospital and the operator. Senior management of R.M. Woodworth & Associates continues to oversee the management company in the ongoing operation of the hotel. The $48 million project opened in July 2020.


January 2019 to present.
