HCA Florida Oak Hill Hospital has closed its four-bed inpatient pediatric unit. The shift to outpatient treatment options for children as a result of advances in surgical care, medications and remote monitoring has impacted the hospital’s ability to support an inpatient pediatric service. 

The hospital will continue to operate its eight-bed pediatric emergency department, and pediatric emergency patients needing inpatient care will be transferred to a children’s facility offering the appropriate level of care with specialty coverage as needed.
