Message from the CEO

HCAFL_H_StPetersburgHospital_AboutUs_CEO_KennethWicker.jpg
HCA Florida St. Petersburg Hospital is proud to provide outstanding healthcare services to patients and families in our community. Our goal is to give every patient the best care while conveying customer service.

Our hospital is locally managed but also part of a comprehensive network of hospitals in the U.S. and United Kingdom affiliated with HCA Healthcare, the nation’s leading provider of healthcare services. Our mission is to provide extraordinary care to every life we touch.

As a partner in our community, we are committed to the health and economic vitality of our region. In 2018, over 37,000 patients sought services in our emergency department, and more than 53,000 patients received care in our facility. We employ more than 720 highly educated professionals with a workforce payroll of over $47 million. Local, state and federal taxes paid consisted of almost $4.4 million.

At HCA Florida St. Petersburg Hospital, our basic premise is simple: We put patients first. Our patient-centered culture provides a welcoming environment for all races, ages, genders, nationalities, religions and sexual orientations. By striving to meet the needs of our patients, their families and our employees, we encompass all the aspects that are a necessary component of excellence in healthcare.

While we take care of a multitude of medical issues, we are also a destination surgical hospital, for both patients and physicians. We want you to feel confident in your choice of our hospital. For patients, we offer a concierge and a dedicated pre/post-operating room surgical wing where you can check in the night before an inpatient procedure, and your loved one can stay with you. Women with gynecologic surgical procedures stay on our Women’s Services unit upstairs, where women's care is our specialty. We offer easy pre-registration online and a web-based video to showcase our processes and procedures, so you feel confident in our care. For physicians, our operating room team has been together many years, consistently ranks in the top quartile of operating room efficiencies and offers convenient Saturday robotic surgery scheduling in addition to being ready to perform emergent surgical procedures 24/7.

We work toward and continue to attain many accreditations and certifications, including Accredited Advanced Primary Stroke Center, Accredited Chest Pain Center, Certified Atrial Fibrillation Center, Accredited Community Cancer Center, LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Index Leader, and, for the 4th year in a row, the Women’s Choice Award for Best Emergency Care.

We continue to dedicate ourselves to making sure our care is the best it can be for you. We appreciate you allowing us to care for you and your family and welcome your continued support of your community hospital.

Warm regards,

Ken Wicker

President and CEO
