Message from the CEO

Lisa Nummi, Citrus Hospital CEO

At HCA Florida Citrus Hospital, our patients become our guests. Our family. That's why our primary concern is to provide excellent care and to hasten recovery.

You may recognize many of our staff members – they're your neighbors and friends. That's the advantage of receiving care in a community hospital that offers more personalized care. But, what makes us most unique is that we're able to provide this care while being consistently top–rated in surgical excellence.

The HCA Florida Citrus Hospital staff knows that while it is never easy to be in the hospital, either as a patient or family member of a patient, we can ease the experience. We promise to continue to bolster the customer service our staff provides to our patients and visitors.

Thank you for choosing HCA Florida Citrus Hospital for your healthcare needs. We hope you are as proud of our hospital as we are of the privilege to serve you.

Lisa Nummi
Chief Executive Officer

She knew that ditching the excess fat would aid in keeping cancer at bay, so she sought help from Dr. Parth Patel at Inverness Surgical Associates. After a gastric sleeve procedure, the 45-year-old lost more than 100 pounds.

Montana Ritter

In the early morning hours of June 12, 2019, Montana Ritter awoke in a panic. The nine-year-old who had recently battled a nasty cold could feel her throat closing shut. She let out a noise that brought her family to their feet. Fearing the worst, the family quickly ushered Montana to the Citrus Memorial Hospital ER. “I wasn’t expecting so many people to surround us,” said her mother, Christy Ritter. “I’d been to this ER in the past, and the experience wasn’t great. I was so scared, but this team was impressive.” Sharon Stevens, ER Director, and Tiffany Thomason, RN, share how they had to make quick decisions.

With all the news on TV and social media we were a bit nervous until we arrived at HCA Florida Citrus Hospital and saw the steps taken to ensure our safety.
