About the Facility:

A member of Florida Hospital Heartland Division, Florida Hospital Lake Placid opened in 1982, offering emergency and outpatient services. Inpatient services were added in 1989 to further meet the needs of residents in South Highlands County.

A major renovation in 2000 included the addition of a new 10-bed ICU and conversion of the remaining inpatient beds to private rooms. Phase II, completed in 2001, centered on the expansion of the Emergency Department to 10 private rooms and a complete renovation and remodeling of the entrance and building facade, completely transforming the look and feel of the admitting areas and waiting rooms.

Florida Hospital Lake Placid houses 33 medical and surgical beds, the county's only 17-bed inpatient geriatric mental health unit, an outpatient counseling center and a wide range of services that are highly sophisticated for a small community hospital.

About the Community:

The central location of Florida Hospital Heartland Division is only an hour or two from popular Florida cities such as Bradenton, Sarasota, Tampa, Orlando and West Palm. However, location is only one reason for the area’s steady growth. A readily available work force, excellent educational opportunities and relatively low construction and operating costs put it in an enviable position for continued growth.

Highlands County has 15 elementary and secondary schools, including a 12-grade Seventh-day Adventist academy. For those seeking a progressive small-town lifestyle that offers high-tech healthcare in a Christian healing environment, plus a mild climate and recreation opportunities galore, Florida Hospital Heartland Division offers an excellent choice.
