HCA Florida announced construction is underway on the new $231 million HCA Florida Gainesville Hospital, the latest hospital planned as part of HCA Florida Healthcare’s expansion across the state. Community and hospital leaders kicked off the project Thursday with a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of the recently opened HCA Florida Gainesville Emergency Room, which will be expanded into the new full-service hospital over the next 18 months.   

The new hospital and medical office building, targeted to open in early 2026, will build upon the existing HCA Florida Gainesville Emergency Room. The hospital will include a surgical services department, a catheterization lab, 60 medical/surgical beds, a 30-bed in-patient rehabilitation unit and a full complement of imaging services available for the community. The hospital is anticipated to house more than 200 colleagues, including physicians, other healthcare professionals and support personnel.   

With more than 84,000 colleagues, HCA Florida Healthcare’s comprehensive network is a family of more than 650 affiliated sites of care, including hospitals, physician practices, freestanding emergency rooms and urgent care centers.
