Physicians

 

Parrish Medical Center ranked as Central Florida’s No. 1 hospital, America’s No. 5 independent public hospital, and in the top six percent of all U.S. hospitals. These rankings are based on data compiled by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on clinical care, the quality of the patient experience, and cost.

Our very mission speaks to our service-orientated culture. PMC’s mission is to provide healing experiences for everyone all the time. 

From maintaining an A grade with LeapFrog for safety, to our excellent core measure results and our excellent HCAHPs rankings, we take every opportunity to listen to patients and families during the course of their healthcare journey.
