History of Excellence

Since our first facility opened in 1948, we’ve had the privilege of caring for generations of Highland County residents. As the needs of our community grow, we will continue to improve our emergency service offerings, while maintaining our core pillars of treating each individual with expertise and respect.

Growing with Our Community

To better accommodate our Heartland community, Florida Hospital’s Sebring campus opened a newly expanded and completely redesigned emergency department. Completed in late 2011, the facility features spacious patient rooms with private bathrooms, enhanced privacy, a quieter environment and more advanced technology to provide the best patient-centered care.

Unparalleled Emergency Access

For any emergency conditions that cannot be treated through our three Highland County campuses, we access Florida Hospital’s comprehensive roster of expert emergency services in Orlando. And as part of Florida Hospital’s broad system of campuses and care, we also have access to Florida Flight 1helicopter transport. The Florida Flight 1 team is a highly experienced emergency response flight crew that provides quick, capable care for patients in need of more specialized treatment at Florida Hospital’s Orlando campus.
