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, Florida (October 29, 2015) – Coral Gables Hospital congratulates Dulce Rodriguez, RN, quality manager, for being honored as this quarter’s DAISY Award winner. Rodriguez previously served as the wound care coordinator before her recent promotion to quality manager.

“Dulce worked tirelessly to help expand our wound care program and she wasn’t satisfied with just good results; she wanted outstanding,” said Patrick Downes, CEO of Coral Gables Hospital. “We congratulate Dulce for her perseverance and for being a role model for her colleagues.”

The entire quality department came together to nominate Rodriguez for this award. She is described as passionate about her work, her co-workers and, most importantly, her patients. Rodriguez has adjusted her regular schedule to meet individual patients’ needs. She is also respected by physicians for her devotion to her position, her efficient communication and for consistently following up on tasks as needed.

The DAISY Foundation was created in memory of J. Patrick Barnes after he passed away from an autoimmune disease. His family was so touched by the compassion and hope provided by the nurses who cared for him that they created the DAISY Award. The award honors nurses who provide excellent patient care while simultaneously providing extraordinary emotional support to patients and their families.
