Notification of Closing
Effective November 24, 2014, Edward White Hospital, Inc., d/b/a Edward White Hospital, a general acute care hospital and skilled nursing facility located at 2323 9th Avenue North, St. Petersburg, Florida 33713, will cease operations. The decision to close Edward White Hospital has been a difficult one, and it was made after careful consideration. Despite excellent physicians, dedicated employees and quality programs and services, the decision was made that the community would benefit most if further investment is focused on consolidating Edward White Hospital’s services with those of its sister facilities in the area: Northside Hospital, Palms of Pasadena Hospital and St. Petersburg General Hospital.
The Hospital’s skilled nursing facility discharged its last patient on October 10, 2014, and is no longer accepting new patients. On November 24, 2014, the Hospital will close and all remaining patients will be transferred to other health care providers. All Medicare Health Care Benefits Agreements relating to Edward White Hospital and its skilled nursing facility will be terminated on November 24, 2014, and Edward White Hospital will not participate in the Medicare program after that date.
After the closure date, copies of the Hospital’s medical records may be obtained by (i) contacting the Tampa HCA Shared Service Center at 6451 126th Avenue North, Largo, Florida 33773, Attn: HSC Release of Information, (ii) calling 1-866-463-7272, or (iii) following the instructions that will be posted to Edward White Hospital’s website. Edward White Hospital thanks you for having had the opportunity to care for you and your family.
