Port Charlotte, FL – HCA Florida Fawcett Hospital has completed phase one of its $60-million expansion and renovation project that increases the hospital’s capacity and broadens its offerings. Officially open to the public on May 13, the project included expanding critical care units by 12 rooms, increasing the number of pre-operative treatment areas to 43 bays, renovation of the main lobby, waiting rooms and registration areas and the addition of a chapel and coffee shop. The coffee shop will be occupied by Los Dos Christianos Coffee in June.  Patients and visitors can now find the main entrance off Olean Boulevard.

The entire project includes 40,000 square feet of new space and 20,000 of renovated space.  Phase two will include expansion to the hospital’s operating room capacity from 10 to 12 suites and is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2024.

Over the past several years, the hospital has experienced significant growth and demand for its services. This expansion and renovation will enable the hospital’s growth as it continues to bring innovative programs and services to the community.
