Opportunity Presents Itself for Health Care Systems in Florida

TAMPA, FLORIDA, USA, July 19, 2019 / -- Florida ranks 46th among the states in affordability and access of health care, just ahead of Texas, according to U.S. News & World Report. Texas-based Emerus Holdings Inc. views the Governor’s recent decision to eliminate the Certificate of Need requirement before certain hospital facilities are built in Florida as an opportunity to address health care issues in a meaningful way that will benefit Florida residents. Greatly improving access to health care, particularly in underserved communities, is one of the biggest reasons six emergency department physicians founded Emerus, just over a decade ago.

• Emerus, the nation’s first and largest operator of micro-hospitals, also known as community or neighborhood hospitals, has expanded across the nation. It is now seeking to partner with a major health care system in South Florida to build and operate micro-hospitals throughout the region.
• Health systems benefit from partnering with Emerus because they can expand their reach in a much-smaller footprint, at far less cost, without sacrificing quality. Patients benefit from the fast, empathetic care they receive in the convenience of their own neighborhoods.
• The concept developed by Emerus has been so successful, The Wall Street Journal described it as “the hospital of the future.”
