An Update for our community on the COVID-19 Vaccination Process

We are currently in Phase 1 of our COVID-19 vaccination plan.  This means we are vaccinating front line staff and physicians with first responders to follow.  We have started initial planning for community vaccinations, but we have not received enough vaccine supply at this time. We are working closely with our state and local leaders, and we will keep everyone informed as more vaccine doses become available and we are able to expand vaccination capability.  The most effective safety measures we can take against COVID-19 continue to be wearing a mask, washing our hands, and maintaining social distance. We remind our community not to delay care. Our hospitals are open, safe and ready to care for you.

Our Response to COVID-19

Welcome to Coral Gables Hospital

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and thank you for choosing Coral Gables Hospital. Our long legacy of offering high quality healthcare to the Coral Gables and Miami communities began over 90 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. I have had the honor of seeing much of this extraordinary development firsthand since I joined the hospital more than 30 years ago.

At Coral Gables Hospital, our focus is on patient experience and clinical outcomes. Our staff prides itself on serving our patients and their families with a warm and friendly attitude and unwavering commitment to provide quality care.

Coral Gables Hospital Receives Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement from the Joint Commission

Aug 12, 2019
Coral Gables Hospital earns The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement. The advanced certification is for Joint Commission-accredited hospitals, critical access hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers seeking to elevate the quality, consistency and safety of their services and patient care. 
 
Coral Gables Hospital underwent a rigorous onsite review.  Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with advanced disease-specific care standards and total hip and total knee replacement requirements, including orthopedic consultation, and pre-operative, intraoperative and post-surgical orthopedic surgeon follow-up care. 
 
“Achieving Advanced Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement Certification recognizes Coral Gables Hospital’s commitment to provide care in a safe and efficient manner for patients,” said Patrick Phelan, executive director, Hospital Business Development, The Joint Commission. “The advanced certification will help Coral Gables Hospital better provide coordinated and comprehensive care to patients undergoing a total hip or total knee replacement.”
 
“Coral Gables Hospital is pleased to receive advanced certification from The Joint Commission, one of the premier health care quality improvement and accrediting bodies in the nation,” said Dr. Gilbert Beauperthuy-Rojas. “We look forward to continuing to improve patient safety and quality of care for the increasing number of patients undergoing total hip or total knee replacement surgery.”
 
Established in 2016, and awarded for a two-year period, the advanced certification was developed in response to the growing number of patients undergoing a total hip or total knee replacement surgery, as well as the increased focus on clinical evidence-based patient care as it relates to pain management, quality of life issues, functional limitation in mobility and the return to normal daily activities.
