HCA Florida Capital Hospital opens a new rehabilitation center
The newly rebranded "H-C-A Florida Capital Hospital" has opened its latest addition. The ribbon-cutting ceremony took place Wednesday, April 20.
Hospital CEO Alan Keesee said the new $23 million, 27,000 square foot rehabilitation center will mean better patient outcomes.
"The purpose of rehabilitation is to really after you've had an acute stay at a hospital, to help you get back to your life and family."
Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce Chief Sue Dick said the new facility will also be a great economic development tool.
"Healthcare is the No. 1 important item we hear from anyone locating here or growing their families and creating businesses here."
And hospital head Keesee had more good news at the ribbon-cutting.
"We had zero COVID-19 patients a week ago. And that's the first time in two years that's occurred."
Meanwhile, HCA Florida Capital Hospital's growth spurt continues. The next grand opening will be next week for a neonatal intensive care unit.
