President and CEO, North Florida Regional Healthcare
Came to Greater Gainesville in 2010
As a Gainesville resident, you may be in the know of a few things: We’re the largest city in the county, we birth some of the biggest football fans in the state and we offer true excellence in health care. At North Florida Regional Medical Center, we’re proud to be a significant part of the latter. Our organization is a 432-bed, full service, medical and surgical acute care center, which serves 14 counties in North Central Florida.
We’re leading the way in North Central Florida with advanced procedures and minimally invasive surgery, robotic surgery, cardiovascular care, orthopedics and cancer care. It is our commitment and dedication that drive us to consistently prioritize upgrades to practices and make significant investments in cutting-edge healthcare technology. These advanced-technology procedures make way for less pain, smaller incisions, less time in the hospital and less time away from home and work.
Another great North Florida Regional specialty lies within its neurosciences. With the help of recently-acquired, innovative equipment, we are now able to provide higher-level care for stroke victims. Furthermore, with the recent addition of one of the top cardiovascular surgeons in the US, we are now able to operate on some of the sickest cardiovascular patients through the minimally invasive procedures, as an alternative to riskier open-heart surgeries.
With the shortest wait times in the area, we’re perhaps best known for our commitment to fast, quality care in our emergency room. Working with our network of support staff, we’re able to handle emergencies on a 24/7 basis. In addition to specialty care and emergency services, we provide primary medical care through Gainesville Family Physicians, Gainesville Internal Medicine Physicians and our senior healthcare centers.
We strive to continuously monitor and improve upon the care we provide, a component that is evident in the recognition we’ve received. North Florida Regional is certified as a comprehensive stroke center and is Gainesville’s first accredited chest pain center. It is designated as a Blue Distinction Center for knee and hip replacement, spine surgery and weight loss surgery. The Joint Commission has recognized our commitment to exceptional outcomes five consecutive years as a Top Quality Performer.
For the past 43 years, North Florida Regional has been focused on enriching the community through dedicated, compassionate extraordinary health care — a tradition that we promise to keep.
