February 14, 2024

Ocala, FL — HCA Florida Ocala Hospital announces the opening of a new freestanding emergency room as part of HCA Florida Healthcare’s continued expansion across the state. Opening today, HCA Florida Foxwood Emergency, an 11,000-square-foot facility at 4361 NW Blichton Road, on the west side of Highway 27, provides a full range of medical services for children and adults.

This new, state-of-the-art ER will be staffed with board-certified emergency medicine physicians and nurses, 24-hours a day, 365 days a year, just like an emergency room that is housed within the walls of a hospital. Physicians and colleagues will treat a range of general and specific conditions including infections, chest pain and broken bones.

“Whether you’re visiting the World Equestrian Center or are a long-time resident in the Farmland Preservation Area, we care like family and we will be here when you need us,” said Alan Keesee, HCA Florida Ocala Hospital CEO. “This emergency room is near Ocala Preserve, where retirees spend their golden years and deserve to have access to swift, compassionate care.”

HCA Florida Foxwood Emergency will enable HCA Florida Healthcare to offer patient-centered, high-quality care to more Floridians and expand access to HCA Florida Healthcare’s advanced treatments, innovative technologies and experienced care teams.

Designed to meet the community’s growing health care needs, HCA Florida Foxwood Emergency will feature:

  • A separate pediatric entrance and waiting area
  • 11 private treatment rooms
  • CT capabilities
  • Digital ultrasound
  • Digital diagnostic & portable X-rays
  • On-site laboratory
  • Telemedicine technology with a specific focus on stroke care and behavioral health

Care Like Family, 24/7/365

Patients visiting HCA Florida Foxwood Emergency can expect the same level of care as a hospital-based emergency department. Should the patient require in-patient treatment, HCA Florida Foxwood Emergency is part of a leading healthcare network across the state, including hospitals, physician practices and specialty care across the state to create a connected and collaborative healthcare experience for patients and their families.

“This ER is just down the interstate from the Ocala 489 industrial park, which is bringing thousands of jobs and families to Ocala,” said Keesee. “Minutes matter in an emergency and residents need an access point that cuts their driving time in half. While our approach to treatment has advanced, we continue to deliver collaborative, local care our communities expect and deserve.”
