Default Second TVRH Emergency Dept. coming

The Villages Regional Hospital has plans to build a satellite emergency department south of Brownwood. The location is directly across Rt. 44 from the bronze cattle.

Meggison Rd will be extended. It will run southward, on the east side of the Turnpike, all the way to Morse Blvd/Warm Springs Ave (formerly CR 468).

It appears that the facility will be golf cart accessible, coming north from the villages of Southern Oaks. Of course, a golf cart bridge will be built over 44 a little east of this facility. I can't see how easy it will be to cross over from Brownwood on that bridge and head to the facility.

will not make a big diffrence. Until TVRH hospital and the emergency room decides to take direct admits from The Villages Health the disconnect that causes patient waits and dissatisfaction will remain.

Exciting times. I understand it will be a 16 bed ER. Thinking it arrivals will be ambulances and cars, as it will not be an urgent care facility, but you are right about the golf cart access, too.

In a meeting today, I learned that the facility is a joint venture with Shands. Opening is planned for December 2019.

So who do they accept direct admits from around here? Just curious since the Hospital has no affiliation with The Villages aside from renting the land.

I would be interested to learn more about this "arrangement".
Shands is a specialty/teaching hospital. All the specialists are on campus in Gainseville. There is no connection between Shands and TVRH.
A joint venture via a remote emergency room has no apparent logic what so ever.

Shands has doctors already seeing patients at UFHealth in Summerfield. My husband and several neighbors see orthopedic doctors for pain management.

Some time ago the company that owns TV Hospital and the Leesburg Hospital (Central Florida Health) said the have purchased land in Brownwood area where they were going to put up an ER and possibly a hospital.

Wonder if United Health the Villages insurance will be accepted. I go to Shands in Gainesville because I have what is classified as a rare Syndrome. I have to jump thru many hoops for them to see me and for my United Health plan to pay.
