Oviedo, FL — Central Florida Regional Hospital, an affiliate of HCA, will bring state of the art emergency care to Oviedo in 2013 with the opening of a freestanding emergency department on a 26-acre site at the intersection of Red Bug Lake Road and the 417 Greenway. Groundbreaking is scheduled for Thursday, December 13 at 10:30 a.m. and the public is invited to attend.
The 11,000-square-foot, one-story facility is expected to serve more than 10,000 Oviedo and East Seminole County residents a year. Projected to open in the fall of 2013, the $9.7 million project will feature 12 private patient care rooms and will employ 35 full-time staff and four emergency medicine physicians.
Unlike other medical facilities in the surrounding area, the freestanding emergency department in Oviedo will operate as a full-service emergency room providing 24/7 emergency care for both pediatric and adult patients. The new facility will offer comprehensive emergency services including a dedicated trauma room as well as laboratory and imaging services.
“With Oviedo’s continued growth, Central Florida Regional Hospital is committed to becoming more engaged in the welfare of the region by bringing world class health care to the local community,” said Wendy Brandon, Chief Executive Officer. “We are proud to have the community’s support in this endeavor and look forward to bringing high quality, convenient emergency services to the area.”
To R.S.V.P for the groundbreaking ceremony, please call (407) 302-7363 by December 10. Parking will be available in the parking lot behind Citizens Bank of Florida at 8305 Red Bug Lake Road.
