Hialeah Hospital Wikipedia
In 1951, the hospital opened in Hialeah in northwest Miami-Dade County, Florida. A Seventh-day Adventist minister, Elder W. 0. Reynolds, then pastor of the Miami Temple church, bought a block of land, with a down payment of $5,000 and a mortgage for $45,000. The hospital was set up in the largest of three buildings on the property, with doctors' offices, laboratory and X ray and maternity in the others.
The medical staff began with Dr. L. L. Andrews, an Adventist physician of long practice in Miami and Dr. A. W. McCorkle, whose home was Lake Worth, Florida, and began his practice at the Hialeah Hospital in December, 1951.
By 1956 the original 30-bed capacity was inadequate, and financial resources were sufficient to begin a program of expansion. At that time six additional patient rooms were added, and the capacity was increased to 50 beds. The addition included a large main nursing station and a surgery unit consisting of three operating rooms and a central supply room. The doctors' building, which houses the offices and examining rooms of four physicians, was built at the same time.
As dramatic growth elevated Hialeah to the eight largest city in the State of Florida, Hialeah Hospital has grown to be one of the largest privately owned hospitals in the state. Due to the rapid influx of Hispanic-Americans, the hospital became largely bilingual in both Spanish and English.
Hialeah Hospital, part of Tenet Healthcare's Florida region, has been serving the medical and health care needs of central to north Miami-Dade County since 1951.
