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.

First in Miami-Dade to Achieve Designation by The Joint Commission for Both Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement

Jan 30, 2020

Coral Gables, Fla. (February 22, 2017) - Coral Gables Hospital receives The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for its Total Hip Replacement and Total Knee Replacement by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety in disease-specific care.  The certification standardizes care for all hip and knee replacement patients based on effective and consistent use of appropriate, evidence-based clinical practice from pre-surgical consultation to education following discharge.

“To be the first in the county to receive both Joint Replacement – Hip and Knee Certification from The Joint Commission demonstrates that Coral Gables Hospital is a leader in orthopedic care,” said Patrick Downes, hospital CEO. “Providing cutting-edge, quality care to our patients is a top priority, and we are honored to be recognized by The Joint Commission for the exceptional advancements in performing joint replacements.”

A Joint Commission expert evaluated Coral Gables Hospital for compliance with standards of care specific to the needs of patients and families, including infection prevention and control, leadership and medication management.

 “Achieving Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement Certification is a testament to Coral Gables Hospital’s commitment to provide care in a safe and effective manner for patients with the goal of achieving the best outcomes possible,” said Dr. Gilbert Beauperthuy-Rojas, medical director of orthopedic surgery at Coral Gables Hospital. “The processes we have in place that are recognized by this certification let our community know that we are providing coordinated and comprehensive care to patients undergoing a total hip or total knee replacement.”

The Joint Commission’s Disease-Specific Care Certification Program launched in 2002 and is designed to evaluate clinical programs across the continuum of care. Certification requirements address three core areas: compliance with consensus-based national standards; effective use of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines to manage and optimize care; and an organized approach to performance measurement and improvement activities.
