HCA Florida Englewood Hospital Leaders Honor Caregiver’s Memory through Volunteer Work during National Wreaths Across America Day

ENGLEWOOD, Fla. November 19, 2022 – On National Wreaths Across America Day, leaders from HCA Florida Englewood Hospital joined volunteers at more than 3,400 locations across the United States, at sea and abroad who laid 2.7 million wreaths to show our veterans and their families that we will never forget.
Paul Evans, a caregiver who passed in 2022, had previously shared a story about how much it meant to him to honor his father’s service to our country by laying a wreath at his grave. The team was inspired to honor Paul’s memory by volunteering at Sarasota National Cemetery.
Paul was a valuable member of the HCA Florida Healthcare family for six years. He joined the senior management team of HCA Florida Englewood Hospital as vice president of Operations in September 2021. Previously, Paul served as director of Food and Nutrition Services at HCA Florida Sarasota Doctors Hospital, HCA Florida Oak Hill Hospital and HCA Florida Blake Hospital.
Paul’s legacy of service to patients will live on through his work on the $10 million emergency department renovation at Englewood Hospital and the newly opened HCA Florida Wellen Park Medical Office near the hospital. He also took the lead on the $6.9 million renovation of the kitchen space at HCA Florida Blake Hospital.
He will be most remembered by his inspiring example of servant leadership.
