Additional COVID Isolation Centers Available

________________________________________________

 

To support long-term care providers and help in hospital decompression during the COVID-19 public health emergency, the Agency for Health Care Administration has worked to establish COVID Isolation Centers across the state. The Agency wants to ensure providers are aware of the availability of these facilities as a potential resource, including several new isolation centers recently brought online.

  • Dolphin Pointe in Duval County
  • OakBridge Healthcare Center in Polk County
  • Port Charlotte Rehab Center in Charlotte County
  • Gulf Coast Medical Center/Skilled Nursing Unit in Lee County
  • De Luna Health and Rehab Center in Escambia County 
  • PruittHealth Southwood in Leon County
  • NSPIRE Healthcare Lauderhill in Broward County
  • Carrington Place in Pinellas County
  • Miami Care Center in Miami-Dade County
  • Avante at Boca Raton in Palm Beach County
  • Viera del Mar Health and Rehabilitation Center in Brevard County
  • Oasis Health and Rehabilitation Center in Palm Beach County 

Hospitals can request to discharge patients who require nursing facility level of care and who lack an appropriate discharge setting while recovering from COVID-19 to COVID Isolation Centers. Long-term care facilities can transfer COVID-positive residents who need more clinical monitoring and appropriate isolation to safely recover.

 

The discharging facility will contact, and work directly with, the isolation facility to coordinate the transfer. The isolation facilities have agreed to serve as a regional resource to receive these patients.

 

For up-to-date information, including a map of isolation facilities and contact details, please go to our COVID isolation center webpage which can be accessed through the following website: http://ahca.myflorida.com/covid-19_inf.shtml.
