The hospital has broken ground on an off-site emergency room on S.R. 54, just east of the Suncoast Pkwy. in Land O’ Lakes.
The building will be 18,000 sq. ft., with 24 beds, and will offer full-service emergency room care 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including on-site laboratory and imaging services, such X-ray, ultrasound & CT scan. The new ER will be staffed with Board-certified emergency medicine physicians and nurses who specialize in emergency care.
“This emergency room facility will provide the Central Pasco community with greater access to comprehensive emergency care,” said Denyse Bales-Chubb, president and CEO of Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel. “We recently completed a significant expansion at (FHWC) and we continue to add physicians and services to meet the medical needs of our growing community.”
The ER is expected to be open in late 2017 or early 2018. A groundbreaking ceremony was held April 6.
