HCA's east Florida division will invest about $650 million in its facilities, including a new $219 million hospital.
The multimillion-dollar investment, which also includes upgrades and expansions of existing buildings, will take about three years to complete, according to a news release.
The system's largest investment will be the construction of a new hospital on the campus of Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Fla. HCA East Florida currently operates a free-standing emergency room facility on the campus.
Other investments include $108 million in upgrades at JFK Medical Center in Palm Beach, Fla. The 472-bed hospital will receive a new three-story bed tower, a larger emergency room and renovated patient rooms. Kendall Regional Medical Center in Miami will receive $90 million in upgrades, which will include a four-story tower with additional intensive care-unit and pediatric beds.
Four other facilities will also receive expansions and upgrades like new floors or larger emergency rooms.
The system will also build two new free-standing emergency room facilities in Doral and Kendall, Fla. It currently operates four emergency care facilities in Florida.
HCA's east Florida division includes 14 hospitals and has more than 6,000 physicians on staff.
Nashville-based HCA announced in May 2016 plans to spend $2.7 billion this year to expand and improve facilities in its 42 markets. HCA is the nation's largest hospital company by revenue. The 165-hospital system reported $39.7 billion in total revenue in 2015.
