Baptist Health South Florida (Coral Gables, Fla.) has completed the rebuilding of Fishermen’s Community Hospital in Marathon, Fla., after it was demolished during Hurricane Irma in 2017.
The two-story, 37,330-square-foot facility includes nine emergency treatment rooms, eight patient rooms, and three chemotherapy treatment rooms. Services include intensive care, rehabilitation, laboratory, surgical, endoscopy, oncology, imaging, biotherapy, and transfusion care.
The new hospital sits at a higher elevation and features an impact-resistant design, with a strong core of durable tilt-wall concrete. Removable flood barriers are also a part of the design to keep storm surge out of the building.
