OVIEDO, FL – Oviedo Medical Center, an HCA North Florida facility, has opened its doors as a 64-bed acute care hospital. Located at 8300 Red Bug Lake Road in Oviedo, the facility has been under construction for the past year and has transformed from a freestanding emergency department into an acute care hospital. In addition to 24/7 emergency care, the hospital brings a full range of healthcare services to east Seminole County and surrounding communities. It is expected to serve more than 35,000 patients in its first year and create more than 300 jobs.
The $109 million, 198,000-square-foot hospital features cutting-edge technology such as a real-time location system, hand hygiene compliance monitoring and advanced nurse call system to promote patient safety. The hospital provides private rooms for every patient and flexible visiting hours. Oviedo Medical Center also offers a family-centered care approach within its six-room Memorable Beginnings Mother/Baby Unit.
Services include medical and surgical inpatient units, intensive care, medical cardiology, telemetry, cardiac catheterization, inpatient and outpatient surgery, women’s services including labor and delivery, cardiopulmonary services, comprehensive diagnostic imaging, and physical, occupational and speech therapy.
“Oviedo Medical Center is HCA North Florida’s fourth acute care hospital in the region, including our two Level II trauma center facilities, and we could not be more proud to continue growing within the Orlando community,” said Michael P. Joyce, FACHE, President, HCA North Florida Division. “As the nation’s leading provider of healthcare services, our extensive resources and expertise will provide patients with a continuum of quality care.”
