HCA Florida Englewood Hospital celebrates the completion of a $10 million renovation of Emergency Services

ENGLEWOOD, Fla. November 30, 2022 – HCA Florida Englewood Hospital leadership and caregivers gathered to celebrate the completion of a multi-phase, state-of-the-art Emergency Department renovation. The $10 million, 8,400 square-foot project expands capacity, helping the hospital stay ahead of the health care needs of our growing community and the Southwest Florida region.
The number of patient care areas in the Emergency Department has been expanded from eight to 18.
The project also includes the following:

  • New Bronchoscopy-Endoscopy suites
  • A dedicated lounge for first responders
  • New Behavioral Health Safe rooms
  • Expanded trauma suites
  • A new waiting and registration area
  • A private consultation room
  • Increased emergency support space
All systems and equipment were upgraded for energy efficiency and reflect current design trends in healthcare. 
“With a major hospital closing in Venice coupled with the continued growth in our region, the healthcare needs of our residents are also increasing. Care close to home is critical in an emergency,” said Steve Young, Chief Executive Officer. “Our hospital is only 10 miles south of the intersection of Englewood Road and Highway 41, so we are well positioned to care for Venice residents and those in Sarasota and Charlotte Counties.” 
Over the years, HCA Florida Englewood Hospital, an HCA Healthcare facility, has had a proven track record for quality. The hospital is the only hospital in Florida to earn 21 consecutive “A” grades for hospital safety from the Leapfrog Group, an independent national watchdog organization with a 10-year history of grading the ability of general hospitals to prevent medical errors and harm to patients. Only one hospital along the east coast of Florida claims 22 consecutive “A” grades. In 2021, IBM Watson Health named Englewood Hospital one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals for the second time.
The Emergency Department of Englewood Hospital has been voted Best Emergency Service Center by the readers of The Englewood Sun every year since 2012. It has an excellent reputation for providing quality care efficiently and with a personal approach.
