ORLANDO, Fla. (March 2, 2022) — Central Florida’s five HCA Healthcare hospitals, along with affiliated physician practices, freestanding emergency rooms and other sites of care across Florida will officially unite under a shared brand, HCA Florida Healthcare, on March 3. Each site of care will have new logos that represent HCA Florida Healthcare and signal their connection to the state’s leading collaborative healthcare network.
HCA Florida Healthcare connects approximately 11,000 staff physicians, 77,000 colleagues, 49 hospitals and more than 450 physician practices, freestanding emergency rooms and urgent care centers. As a comprehensive and connected network, 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. New facility names will clearly illustrate connection to a unified, collaborative network of caregivers.
“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 top-quality care for patients across the Sunshine State.”
A New State of Healthcare
Orlando-area HCA Florida Healthcare hospitals will introduce new logos with the launch of HCA Florida Healthcare on March 3:
- Central Florida Regional Hospital becomes HCA Florida Lake Monroe Hospital
- Osceola Regional Medical Center becomes HCA Florida Osceola Hospital
- Oviedo Medical Center will retain the same name
- Poinciana Medical Center becomes HCA Florida Poinciana Hospital
- UCF Lake Nona Medical Center becomes UCF Lake Nona Hospital
HCA Healthcare-affiliated hospitals have served the Central Florida community for more than four decades. Now, through the launch of HCA Florida Healthcare, this transformation will officially bring their connection with HCA Healthcare to the forefront. While facility names and logos may change, patients and families can continue to expect their trusted physicians and nurses to deliver care like family, with no changes to facility services, hours of operation, phone numbers or health insurance participation.
As a comprehensive and connected network, HCA Florida Healthcare has the unique ability to continually improve and positively transform the patient care experience; expand patient access to care; address the ongoing nursing and physician shortage; respond during times of disaster; advance diversity in healthcare; and fund and collaborate with nonprofit organizations to address high-priority community needs.
Giving Back to Central Florida Community During National Nutrition Month
HCA Healthcare’s mission is: “Above all else, we are dedicated to the care and improvement of human life.” As a mission-driven organization, HCA Florida Healthcare strives to address the critical needs of the community such as food insecurity. Feeding America estimates that in 2021, one in seven people and one in five children in Central Florida lived in households that may be food insecure. To help meet this need, the hospital will partner with Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida during National Nutrition Month in March to:
- Host food drives collecting donations from colleagues and community partners to help food-insecure families throughout Central Florida.
- Provide volunteers, including more than 40 colleagues from its affiliated hospitals, ERs and medical practices on HCA Florida Day at Second Harvest Food Bank on March 4.
- Launch a communitywide donation effort to raise money for the food bank. The HCA Florida family can be found at events throughout the community during the month of March. Community members are encouraged to find one of the branded hospital vans, snap a picture, post it on social media with #HCAFloridaFeedingFamilies in the caption and tag HCA Florida Healthcare. For each photo shared, HCA will donate $5 to Second Harvest, up to $10,000.
- Host a virtual fundraising opportunity benefitting the food bank. For those who wish to participate, donations can be made via the virtual food drive.
