About the Facility:

A member of the Florida Hospital Heartland Division, the Wauchula facility is a 25-bed hospital that specializes in emergency and outpatient care, while offering excellent medical inpatient services. Florida Hospital Wauchula filled the void created when Hardee County's only hospital closed in 1992. To meet the most critical needs first, the emergency and outpatient departments opened in July of 1993. Since that time, additional physicians have been recruited, and hospital services have expanded.

At Florida Hospital Wauchula, the inpatient unit is mixed with both acutely-ill patients and patients who need short-term rehabilitation. This transitional care unit is a vital link in the chain of patient care. This unit bridges the gap between the high-level supervision of an acute-care nursing unit and the less intensive care of home health care.

In 2000, Florida Hospital Wauchula became the first Critical Access Hospital in the State of Florida, and in 2004, the addition of a hospitalist to the Wauchula facility further enhanced the patient care.

About the Community:

The central location of Florida Hospital Heartland Division is only an hour or two from such popular Florida cities as Bradenton, Sarasota, Tampa, Orlando and West Palm Beach. 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.

For those seeking a progressive small-town lifestyle that offers high-tech health care in a Christian healing environment, plus a mild climate and recreation opportunities galore, Florida Hospital Heartland Division offers an excellent choice.
