Physicians Regional Healthcare System is comprised of two hospitals, Physicians Regional-Pine Ridge and Physicians Regional-Collier Boulevard, each with its own unique mark on the Southwest Florida landscape.
Physicians Regional-Pine Ridge has been part of the Southwest Florida community since 1999. Formerly Cleveland Clinic Florida, the hospital was purchased in May 2006. The ownership change transitioned Physicians Regional-Pine Ridge to a true community hospital -- meaning it was no longer closed to only Cleveland Clinic physicians. By adding some of the area's finest private practice physicians to an already exceptional medical staff, the hospital is now able to embrace and support the community like never before.
Physicians Regional-Collier Boulevard is Southwest Florida's newest hospital. Construction began on September 8, 2005, and on February 5, 2007, after tremendous public anticipation, the hospital began accepting patients. The opening of Physicians Regional-Collier Boulevard brought vital services like pediatrics to East Naples and Marco Island, and expanded healthcare choices for everyone in the region.
With two hospitals in the same market, we saw a clear opportunity to create a strong hospital system that provided more options and improved access to healthcare for all citizens and visitors in Southwest Florida. The fact that the hospitals have separate and complementary services, and are located in different regions of Naples, made the union a logical decision. Therefore, the two hospitals now operate with one leadership team under the umbrella of Physicians Regional Healthcare System.
