HCA Florida Twin Cities Hospital broke ground Wednesday on an $8.5 million emergency room expansion project. This expansion is set to double the capacity by adding six exam rooms and three fast track rooms.
“Our community is constantly growing, and HCA Florida Twin Cities Hospital is committed to ensuring this space meets those growing needs for our patients,” CEO Todd Jackson said. “This renovation will increase the hospital’s ER capacity, while enabling us to continue delivering the highest quality of care.”
- HCA Florida Twin Cities Hospital is an award-winning, 65-bed hospital with a medical staff of over 150 physicians.
- In July, the facility was named to the 2022 Fortune/Merative 100 Top Hospitals List, being recognized as one of the top-performing small community hospitals in the U.S.
“The importance of expanding not only the beds, but the staff and the services provided is huge for this community and Okaloosa County,” said Niceville Mayor Daniel Henkel. “Having personally been treated here, you can’t get a finer hospital in terms of services, in terms of the doctors and providers. It’s been a wonderful blessing.”
