Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center has purchased land on the northwest corner of US 192 and CR 545 for a freestanding emergency department. The ER will serve the communities of the Four Corners area of Osceola, Orange, Polk, and Lake Counties.
A freestanding ER offers a convenient, local healthcare access point to the region. "Heart of Florida has served the Four Corners community for several years. We are pleased to expand services to Four Corners with a freestanding emergency department to better serve the healthcare needs of residents choosing to live and visit this growing area," said Ann Barnhart, CEO of Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center.
The Four Corners ER will feature around-the-clock emergency care, on-site radiology and laboratory services, board certified emergency physicians and the skilled clinical staff of Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center.
As an extension of Heart of Florida, the ER at Four Corners will also be part of a fully-integrated system to support patients needing care beyond an emergency room visit. The freestanding ER is projected to open in early 2018.
