Filling a void in Hardee County when the county’s only hospital closed in 1992, Florida Hospital Wauchula is a 25-bed, JCAHO-accredited hospital offering excellent inpatient and outpatient care. The hospital’s transitional care unit serves as a vital link in the chain of patient care, serving as a bridge between high-level supervision of an acute care nursing unit and the less intensive care of home healthcare. The hospital also features a 13-bed emergency department, onsite lab and the county’s only radiology and mammography unit. Florida Hospital Wauchula offers full-time physician hospitalists to coordinate care with each patient’s primary care doctor.
