TAMPA, Fla., October 21, 2022 – HCA Healthcare West Florida Division will expand healthcare services to the Parrish community after completing a 22-acre land purchase today in the North River Ranch master-planned development. The land is located at the North River Ranch Village Center, currently under development, with planned access to Moccasin Wallow Road, U.S. Highway 301 and the newly constructed extension of Fort Hamer Road.
“We are excited to bring healthcare services to the rapidly growing Parrish area and be part of a well-planned community designed around a centrally located health hub focused on improving healthcare access,” said Ravi Chari, M.D., president of HCA Healthcare West Florida Division. “The complexity of services, including emergency care and hospital care, will be built to match the healthcare needs of the community as it grows.”
