As a result of the recent Executive Order from the office of the Governor of the State of Florida and out of an abundance of caution and concern for our patients during the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have postponed the scheduling of elective surgeries and procedures until further notice. This helps us minimize the chance of infection for our patients and staff, conserves the use of personal protective equipment and maintains resources for those who might become critically ill in the future. We will resume scheduling elective surgeries and other procedures once the situation improves. Please reach out to your primary health care provider if you have any questions or concerns.
Located on NW 39th Avenue one mile east of I-75, the free-standing emergency department in the Springhill section of Northwest Gainesville is housed in a completely renovated 8,500-square-foot building, beautifully retrofitted to include all of the technology and diagnostic resources necessary for emergency care.
The new emergency center is fully equipped and staffed to provide the same level of emergency care provided in hospital-based emergency departments, and is open 24/7. The new facility is staffed entirely by board-certified UF Health emergency medicine physicians and nurses specially trained in emergency medicine.
UF Health Shands Emergency Center – Springhill has ten treatment spaces for patients and its own lab and diagnostic radiology services, including Xray, and CT imaging systems. Additionally, ShandsCair will keep an ambulance permanently stationed at the free-standing emergency room to transfer any patients requiring hospitalization.
