100-Bed State-of-the-Art Facility was HMA’s First De Novo Hospital

NAPLES, FL. (February 1, 2012) - Physicians Regional Healthcare System is pleased to announce that Physicians Regional – Collier Boulevard, 8300 Collier Blvd., is celebrating its fifth anniversary this month. The facility opened on February 5, 2007, and was the first de novo hospital for Naples-based Health Management Associates.

“We are delighted with the reception that we have received from the local community since opening the Collier Boulevard campus,” said Scott Campbell, Chief Executive Officer of Physicians Regional – Collier Boulevard. “This facility and our hospital on Pine Ridge Road are committed to providing exceptional health care, delivered in a personal and friendly manner with the most advanced technology available locally.”

Accredited by The Joint Commission, Physicians Regional – Collier Boulevard was built after an extensive planning process.

Construction began in September 2005 and on February 7, 2007 after tremendous public anticipation, the hospital began accepting patients. The opening of Physicians Regional brought vital services such as pediatrics and other general medical/surgical services to East Naples, Marco Island and the surrounding communities.

In addition to the hospital, the Collier Boulevard campus includes a four-story medical office building, Women’s Center, Hand Surgery Institute, Wound Care Center, Hospice, Sleep Disorders Center, ENT Specialty Care Center and more.
