Message From Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey M. Welch

 
 

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and thank you for visiting the Coral Gables Hospital website. Our long legacy of offering high quality healthcare to the Coral Gables and Miami communities began over 85 years ago in the same place our hospital stands today.  From our humble beginnings in 1926 as a 35 bed facility, we have experienced tremendous change and positive growth to consistently offer our patients and their families some of the most advanced medical options in our 245 bed hospital. 

At Coral Gables Hospital, our focus is on patient care – we are here to meet your personal healthcare needs. We truly offer healthcare on a human scale. Our staff prides itself on serving our patients and their families with a warm and friendly attitude and unwavering commitment to provide quality care. 

I invite you to explore these pages and learn about the various programs we offer at Coral Gables Hospital. You will find a wealth of information on our broad range of high quality and award-winning services from primary care to surgery and specialty programs, including: orthopedics, urology, comprehensive diagnostics services, emergency medicine, outpatient rehabilitation, cardiovascular services and more.

We are committed to providing our patients and their families with the best quality care and service possible and are proud to be one of only 244 hospitals nationally recognized by the Joint Commission as a Top Performer for 2 years in a row.  We are also proud to have earned the American Heart Association’s Get with the Guidelines Gold Quality Achievement for Heart Failure and Coronary Artery Disease as well as the CIGNA Quality Designation - Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal, Heart Attack, Total Hip Replacement, Total Knee Replacement, Adult Pneumonia and Stroke.

In 2013, we will continue to enhance our services and community outreach efforts as well as launch new programs.
