Emergency Physicians Treat First Pediatric and Adult Patients at Freestanding Facility
Orlando, FL – Osceola Regional Medical Center officially opened the Hunter’s Creek ER in south Orlando, with physicians treating the first 18 pediatric and adult patients. The facility, located at 12100 S. John Young Parkway, is HCA’s second freestanding ER in Central Florida – following the Oviedo ER, which opened in 2013. It is expected to serve more than 300,000 residents and visitors in the surrounding south Orlando and north Osceola areas.
The $10 million emergency department features 11 private patient beds and a diagnostic laboratory, as well as imaging services that include CT scan, ultrasound and digital X-ray. The one-story building spans 10,600 square feet and includes an ambulance entrance. The Hunter’s Creek ER maintains a staff of approximately 45 healthcare professionals including emergency physicians.
The first pediatric and adult patients received summer and wellness gift baskets to mark the occasion.
“Opening our doors to patients was a proud day for our entire team, and we are honored that south Orlando residents are already choosing Hunter’s Creek ER for quality and compassionate emergency services,” said Steve Young, Associate Administrator of Osceola Regional Medical Center. “Our dedicated, experienced staff looks forward to serving our community for many years to come.”
The general contractor for the project was Naples, FL-based DeAngelis Diamond Healthcare Group. Phoenix-based Devenney Group Ltd., Architects was the architect.
