Message from the CEO

Dear Neighbor,

For more than 46 years, HCA Florida Kendall Hospital has been an ever-present partner in ensuring your health and well-being. Our longstanding commitment to the highest level of quality care remains unchanged. As you may know, in the last several years, we have celebrated many milestones and accomplishments, and we look forward more exciting developments for our community.

HCA Florida Kendall Hospital has been a nationally and regionally recognized leader, and we are proud to have received multiple awards and recognitions that, simply put, translate into a higher quality of care for you and your family. For eight years, we have earned the Distinguished Hospital Award for Overall Clinical Excellence from Healthgrades, the largest independent healthcare rating organization in the nation. This recognition places us in the top 5% of hospitals in the nation for overall clinical quality. We have also continued to receive five-star ratings in many clinical service areas, including stroke, pulmonary, cardiac, gastroenterology, respiratory and maternity care. We have been recognized as the top hospital in Miami-Dade County for orthopedics. In addition, the American Heart and Stroke Associations have honored HCA Florida Kendall Hospital's Stroke Program with the Get With The Guidelines–Stroke Gold-Plus Quality Achievement Award.

Nonetheless, at HCA Florida Kendall Hospital, we are always looking to enhance and elevate the quality of our healthcare. We continue to bring additional physicians in numerous specialties and sub-specialties to add to our excellent medical staff. We are also pleased to have opened only the second adult trauma center in Miami-Dade County, HCA Florida Kendall Hospital–South Florida Trauma Center (Level I). This trauma center provides the region with much-needed access to trauma services, bringing a plethora of highly trained academic surgeons and specialists to ensure the quality of our trauma services is second to none. In addition, we have added 48 private rooms and have renovated our existing rooms to meet the expectations of our patients and their families. Also, we have added burn care services for both children and adults on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. Further, HCA Florida Kendall Hospital is investing in the latest technology for our physicians, nurses and staff.

Our commitment to you, however, goes beyond the bedside. We are an active and responsible community partner to many charitable and non-profit organizations. We have donated significant resources to causes and charities, such as St. Kevin's Catholic Church, St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, Kiwanis Club, Parks and Police for Kids, the FIU Foundation and many more. What better way to show we care than investing in others. We are thankful for the more than 46-year partnership we have had with this community, and we thank you for your support. It is for you that we consider ourselves the heart and soul of quality care.

Sincerely,

Brandon Haushalter
Chief Executive Officer
