UF Health The Villages® Hospital Freestanding ER
UF Health Central Florida recognized the need to provide convenient access to high-quality health care in the Brownwood area of The Villages®, the city of Wildwood, and the surrounding communities to meet the growing demand for emergency services. In 2019, more than 80,000 patients visited the emergency rooms at UF Health The Villages® Hospital and UF Health Leesburg Hospital. The Freestanding ER is a full service emergency room capable of accepting and stabilizing all emergency patient populations.
The modern, 25,000-square-foot facility is open 24/7 and features a full complement of staff, including physicians, nurses and patient care technicians, and is equipped with 16 beds, two of which are situated inside of state-of-the-art trauma bays. The facility is outfitted with the latest diagnostic imaging technology, including CT and X-ray, and offers laboratory and respiratory therapy services, as well as a negative air pressure room for patients who need to be isolated.
It is the first facility of its kind in the Wildwood area and is located directly across from Brownwood Paddock Square in The Villages®.
