Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel Opens Monday

The 18-bed emergency room features a streamlined processing, dedicated imaging equipment and nurses and board-certified emergency room physicians on-site 24 hours a day. Four of the ER suites are outfitted with lighting systems that can be customized to each patient's preference. With a tap on the touch screen, the room can be flooded with soft blue light and images of dolphins swimming on the walls, purple light with a rainforest scene or cartoons for kids.
The hospital will be fully staffed even though most of its 80-plus rooms remain empty, Clouser said. The hospital won't be transferring patients from any other facilities, but judging from the turnout for its grand opening — about 8,000 people attended the Sept. 16 event — officials expect to be busy.
