The facility will be HCA Healthcare's fifth freestanding ER in the Orlando market

Poinciana Medical Center, an affiliate of HCA Healthcare's North Florida Division - Orlando Market, will bring state-of-the-art emergency care to the ChampionsGate area in 2020 with the opening of a freestanding emergency department near the intersection of ChampionsGate Boulevard and Ronald Reagan Boulevard. A groundbreaking ceremony will take place at a later date.

The facility will measure approximately 11,000 square feet, feature 12 private patient care rooms, and employ emergency medicine physicians and staff. It will operate as a full-service emergency department, providing comprehensive, 24/7 care for pediatric and adult patients, including a dedicated trauma room as well as laboratory and imaging services.

"Poinciana Medical Center is committed to providing residents of ChampionsGate and the surrounding area with access to high-quality emergency care," said Chris Cosby, CEO of Poinciana Medical Center. "Every minute matters in an emergency - and having a facility nearby will provide treatment to save lives and enhance patient recovery."

The facility will be the fifth freestanding ER in the Orlando market for HCA Healthcare's North Florida Division. It joins similar facilities in Hunter's Creek (opened in 2014), Heathrow and Baldwin Park (both opened in 2019), as well as an upcoming facility in the Millenia area of Orlando which will open later this summer. Each facility operates as a department of a nearby HCA Healthcare hospital. The North Florida Division's Orlando Market is slated to open its fifth hospital in the region, UCF Lake Nona Medical Center, fall 2020.
