HCA Florida Englewood Hospital will expand emergency healthcare services to the Wellen Park community after completing a 30-acre land purchase in the Wellen Park master-planned development. The west border of the land is located at the intersection of Preto and US Highway 41 in downtown Wellen Park.
“We look forward to bringing a free-standing emergency center to the rapidly growing Wellen Park area and are excited with it being part of a well-planned community designed around improving healthcare access,” says Steve Young, chief executive officer of HCA Florida Englewood Hospital. “From emergency care to hospital care, we will continue to build to match the healthcare needs of the community as it grows.”
HCA will release specific details as plans are finalized. This project connects the Wellen Park area to HCA Florida Healthcare services already available in Sarasota County and across the state at more than 650 affiliated sites of care.
