HCA Florida Orange Park Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit treats patients for medical, surgical, cardiothoracic, and neurological conditions as well as traumatic injuries. In 2021, the hospital treated nearly 2,000 patients in their intensive care units and serves as the only level II trauma center and comprehensive stroke center in Clay County.
“Orange Park Hospital continues to add high-acuity services. To support that advancement, it’s necessary to have a top-quality ICU team,” said Dr. Michael Horowitz, Neurosurgeon at HCA Florida First Coast Neurosurgery. Last year, the hospital added a rare surgical treatment for cranial nerve disorders that provides an 85% chance of a cure. The surgery treats conditions that cause debilitating pain from everyday things such as the wind blowing on their face or swallowing. It is just one of the many new high-level treatments available at the hospital ranging from advanced cardiovascular procedures to ENT surgical treatments.
