Comparison

Our quality, safety, service, and low-cost excellence result from years of focus on our strategic Game Plan to guide how we fulfill our mission of providing healing experiences for everyone all the time®. Each month every hospital department reviews a matrix of clinical care, safety, patient experience and cost measurements. That focused attention has enabled PMC’s care partners to earn national distinctions from Consumer Reports, J.D. Power & Associates, Modern Healthcare magazine and many others.

Parrish Medical Center is among the nation’s best in clinical care and patient experiences, all while remaining Brevard’s lowest-cost hospital.
