The hospital’s Graduate Medical Education program began last year as part of a larger GME consortium between USF Health and HCA Florida. The consortium was developed to address Florida’s physician shortage by expanding the number of residency positions available in the area. The seven other HCA West Florida hospitals with residency programs include: Blake Medical Center (Manatee County); Brandon Regional Hospital (Hillsborough County); Largo Medical Center, Northside Hospital, and St. Petersburg General Hospital (Pinellas County); Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point (Pasco County); and Oak Hill Hospital (Hernando County).
