Hello,

The employees at HCA Florida Largo Hospital have been proudly serving the community for more than four decades now, offering a broad range of medical services. We continue to evolve and expand to accommodate not only the latest in medicine and technology, but also the growing medical needs of those of you in our community.

We recently started performing heart-saving left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantations, expanded our Orthopedics and Spine Floor by 26 beds and opened a four-bed Transplant Intensive Care Unit. We not only offer kidney transplants and hepatobiliary services but are fully equipped with the expertise to perform liver transplants as well. On Gulf To Bay Boulevard in Clearwater, we have the Clearwater emergency room (ER). This ER is staffed 24/7 with board-certified emergency medicine physicians and experienced nurses. It's equipped to immediately treat injured people and those afflicted with acute illness, trauma or other medical emergencies.

HCA Florida Largo Hospital is designated as a Statutory Teaching Hospital by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). This means we provide clinical education and training to current and future doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, in addition to delivering medical care to patients. Through our affiliations and partnerships with such institutions as Nova Southeastern University's College of Osteopathic Medicine, which is our affiliated medical school, the Bay Pines VA Health Care System and the University of South Florida's Morsani College of Medicine, we are offering our students and physicians an excellent educational experience.

Patients benefit from teaching hospitals like HCA Florida Largo Hospital because the academic environment encourages physicians to seek innovative solutions to patients' problems. Attending physicians must stay on top of the latest medical developments in order to teach medical students, residents, student nurses and allied health professionals. Teaching hospitals encourage active collaboration among all members of the care team.

HCA Florida Largo Hospital's staff is continuously recognized by its patients, their families and by the many accolades we have received from national healthcare organizations. We received the Leapfrog Safety Grade of an "A" in the Spring of 2019, the Gold Seal from The Joint Commission and several quality accolades for Heart and Stroke care from the American Heart Association.

Our hospital is an Accredited Chest Pain Center and a Certified Advanced Primary Stroke Center. HCA Florida Largo Hospital has outstanding expert physicians and staff employed throughout our hospital's many service lines, including the AFib and Heart Rhythm Centers, the ERs across three different campuses, the behavioral health program, our cardiovascular services department, the Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine, clinical research, the Florida Bariatric Centers (surgical weight loss), our Florida Breast Institute, Florida Orthopedic Pavilion, the Florida Spine and Neuro Center, our graduate medical education (GME) program, the Hepatobiliary Center, inpatient/outpatient and cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation, palliative care services, robotic surgery and the Transplant Institute of Florida.

The facility is more than a provider of medical excellence, it is a hospital where we take our mission statement seriously. Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life. We encourage you to explore our website and familiarize yourself with our hospital and its services.

Thank you for your interest in HCA Florida Largo Hospital!
