Osceola Regional Medical Center continues to grow continuously to meet the demands of our vibrant and diverse community. Since our beginnings in 1933 when Dr. W. Lancaster opened Osceola General Hospital, the first hospital in Osceola County, we’ve added buildings, floors, units, beds, personnel, physicians, technology and advanced innovative services to provide the highest quality medical care to our patients.
In the midst of changing names, logos and paint colors, one thing remains constant and that is our mission statement: “Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.”
2017 - Upcoming Expansions and New Services
Expansion to add beds and the highest level of care for our premature or ill newborns in our existing NICU Level II. Our Baby Suites and NICU department will be able to care of babies 25 weeks young. Osceola Regional will continue to be the only medical facility offering this type of care in Osceola County.
Why go to another hospital to deliver your baby in the event that after a normal pregnancy your baby unexpectedly needs additional care for a few minutes or months.
At Osceola Regional’s Baby Suites and NICU, mom can rest assured that her baby is close by, without being having to be transferred, and when mom is discharged but baby needs more care, mom and the family can still visit everyday without commuting an hour to see and hold the new addition to the family.
- Osceola Regional’s NICU is staffed 24/7 by Nemours Hospital neonatologists, experienced and highly skilled nurses and equipped with the latest technology and security measures.
- Osceola Regional’s Baby Suites is proud to have been awarded the Blue Distinction Center for Maternity Care.
For childbirth classes, breastfeeding and baby basic classes or to tour our Baby Suites, visit our calendar of events.
- Expansion of the only Primary Advanced Stroke Center in the county. The Primary Advanced Stroke Center has received an award annually for stroke excellence by the American Heart and Stroke Association.
With the addition of the Comprehensive Stroke Center, residents and visitors with the highest and most complex stroke cases will be cared for nearby, without having to be transferred to a distant facility – soon to be the only one of its kind in Osceola County. This means a higher level of care for your brain using additional imaging equipment, sophisticated technology such as an imaging bi-plane, expert specialists, highly trained healthcare professionals and expanded protocols in place when time is of the essence. Because “time lost is brain lost” and we want our patients to have the best outcomes possible so they can have the best life possible.
