Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel is building an offsite emergency room on SR 54 just east of the Suncoast Parkway in Pasco County. The hospital recently purchased the land and expects to begin construction soon.
This emergency room will provide the Central Pasco community with greater access to comprehensive emergency care, said Denyse Bales-Chubb. We recently completed a significant expansion at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, and we continue to add physicians and services to meet the medical needs of our community.
The 18,000-square-foot building will be a full-service emergency room providing emergency care 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The ER will have 24 beds and staffed with board-certified emergency medicine physicians and highly trained nurses who specialize in emergency medicine. The ER will also include onsite imaging services including X-ray, ultrasound, and CT-scan and lab services.
Not only will this facility add another option for high-quality medical care for Central Pasco residents, it will provide over 50 high-skilled jobs for our residents as well. Pasco EDC was happy to provide assistance with expedited permitting to one of our Countys major employers, so they could get this project off the ground quickly," stated Bill Cronin, president/CEO of Pasco Economic Development Council.
