According to HCA Healthcare Today, for the first time in Florida’s history, more than 450 HCA Florida Healthcare affiliated sites of care across the state united under a shared brand on March 3. This transformation will create a collaborative healthcare network in the state, united through a shared dedication to improve more lives in more ways.
With one baby born every 17 minutes at an HCA Florida Healthcare hospital and trauma outcomes better than the national average, we believe the future for Floridians is bright. Throughout the state, patients and families can continue to expect HCA Florida Healthcare’s trusted physicians and nurses to deliver care like family, with no changes to facility hours of operation or phone numbers.
HCA Florida Healthcare will connect approximately 11,000 physicians and 77,000 colleagues serving their communities at 49 hospital campuses, more than 350 physician practices and freestanding emergency rooms and more than 50 urgent care centers. New facility names will clearly illustrate a connection to a unified, collaborative network of caregivers who have shown up to prove their dedication and strength throughout the pandemic.
“Our Florida colleagues and physicians have always been united in their commitment to serving our patients and caring like family. Over the past two years, we’ve come together in ways that better serve our communities and our colleagues, proving that our connectedness is our strength,” said Chuck Hall, national group president at HCA Healthcare. “This transition reflects our mission and our commitment to all we serve as we continue to work together to deliver high-quality care for patients across the Sunshine State.”
HCA Florida Healthcare continually strives to improve quality, expand patient access to care, address the ongoing nursing shortage, respond during times of disaster, advance diversity in healthcare and fund and collaborate with non-profit organizations to address high-priority community needs. Additionally, a partnership between HCA Florida Healthcare’s trauma centers and the University of South Florida Health has identified data-driven best practices that lead to improved clinical outcomes for trauma patients – better than the national average.
