What makes HCA Florida University Hospital unique?
HCA Florida University Hospital offers a unique concierge approach to healthcare. Our primary focus is the patient and their experience when they come here for treatment or a procedure. From the moment a patient or a loved one arrives at the hospital, they’ll be greeted by a guest services coordinator who will help them find their way around. For family members of surgical patients, we offer a text messaging service that updates them on the progress of their loved one’s procedure. The facility has one set of elevators for the public and visitors, and a separate elevator bank for patients and employees to ensure patient privacy. Exceptional patient experiences and world class care. That is our goal.

What is the hospital’s relationship with Nova Southeastern University?
HCA Florida Healthcare is the state’s largest teaching hospital system, currently training more than 2,000 residents and fellows at 25 hospitals. Nova Southeastern University’s Health Professions Division, which includes two accredited medical schools, is one of the most
impressive in the country and is located right next door to HCA Florida University Hospital. We look forward to forging a strong relationship with NSU that will be beneficial to their students and our staff.
What are the employee and physician vaccination requirements at the new hospital?
In compliance with federal COVID-19 vaccination requirements, HCA Healthcare colleagues will be required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by January 4, 2022. We have plans in place based on processes, best practices and knowledge gained from our operations in states that have already mandated vaccination. Since COVID-19 vaccines became available earlier this year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as our infectious disease experts, have been strongly encouraging vaccination as a critical step to protect individuals from the virus and the majority of HCA Healthcare colleagues have already been fully vaccinated. We are working with our colleagues to assist those who have not yet received the vaccine.
Will there be a designated ICU for COVID-19 patients?
A superior patient experience is always our top priority – for COVID patients and non-COVID patients. At HCA Florida University Hospital we have the capabilities, the medical expertise, and the space to quickly and efficiently cohort patients in a dedicated COVID ICU when and if that becomes necessary.
How will the patient and family experience you describe be modified or restricted due to COVID?
Allowing family and friends to visit patients during a hospital stay is essential for their recovery and well-being. To protect patients, staff, and family members we ask visitors to wear a properly-fitting mask while inside the hospital and to postpone their visit if they don’t feel well. We continually monitor the CDC for changes to their recommendations and will modify our visitation policy if the circumstances dictate.
