HCA East Florida Receives State Approval for a New Hospital to be Built on NSU’s Campus

NSU is pleased to announce that an administrative law judge backed a preliminary decision by Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) to approve HCA East Florida’s “certificate of need” application to relocate Plantation General Hospital to NSU’s Fort Lauderdale/Davie campus. The judge’s decision included a recommendation for AHCA to issue the certificate of need. This is a major step toward achieving NSU’s Vision 2020, and a major accomplishment by HCA East Florida.

The 200-bed community hospital will serve South Florida, and will eventually become a teaching and research facility integrated with NSU’s clinics, research centers, and clinical trials. This milestone addition, coupled with this year’s opening of NSU’s Center for Collaborative Research, will provide students and faculty members expanded opportunities for research and training. These opportunities will be in a variety of the health professions, including osteopathic (D.O.) and allopathic (M.D.) medicine programs, engineering, and those pursuing other fields of study as well.

Most importantly, this will help our students realize their potential by fully preparing them for their careers. This is a victory for our university and our community. Let us all celebrate and enjoy this milestone moment for NSU!
