Founded in 1962, growth and community involvement continue to be prominent themes at Peace River Regional Medical Center with over 50 years of service in Charlotte County. Founded by a group of local physicians who were passionate about serving the city's expanding population, Peace River Regional's original 50-bed hospital opened on June 4, 1962. There were three full-time physicians and one part-time physician associated with Peace River Regional at this time.
Since then, this small, one-story community hospital has grown into a 254-bed Joint Commission Accredited full service hospital that is appropriately known as: Your Hospital for Life. Peace River Regional is committed to caring for people throughout their cycle of life, including welcoming newborns, preventing illness, providing acute care, managing declining health, and ensuring compassionate care for the dying. Recognized locally as a leading health care provider, Peace River Regional Medical Center is large enough to offer the full-continuum of care that you and your family need, but small enough to provide the personal attention that you and your family deserve.
Peace River Regional Medical Center is a 254-bed Joint Commission Accredited full service hospital that serves residents in Charlotte, Sarasota, and Desoto counties. The Peace River Regional staff includes roughly 900 Associates, with over 300 physicians representing more than 40 specialties. Supporting our health care staff is over 200 volunteers who donate thousands of service hours each year.
