Summerfield, FL – Residents of Marion, Lake and Sumter Counties have additional access to emergent care as Ocala Health opens its new Summerfield ER, a freestanding ER located on Hwy 441 adjacent to the Del Webb Spruce Creek Community. The nearly $10 million project employs approximately 40 full-time healthcare professionals.
Expected to serve more than 15,000 patients in its first year, the 10,500-square-foot facility features 11 emergency rooms, a laboratory, and imaging services, including CT scan, ultrasound and x-ray.
“The new Summerfield ER facility allows us to provide critical healthcare services in a more convenient setting for our patients,” said Chad P. Christianson, CEO, Ocala Health. “We continually monitor development in Marion County, and our hospitals are seeing an increased number of patients from the Summerfield area. This new facility provides emergent care more closely to where our patients and their families live.”
