Manatee Memorial Hospital to Host a Groundbreaking Ceremony for a New Freestanding Emergency Room in Hillsborough County

On Monday, October 25, 2021, Manatee Memorial Hospital will host a groundbreaking ceremony from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., to celebrate the construction of a new freestanding emergency room – the ER at Sun City. The new location will expand access to emergency care in Hillsborough County. Located at 16504 S. U.S. 301, Wimauma, FL 33598, adjacent to Walmart, the new ER at Sun City will provide emergency care 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The new facility is expected to open in the second quarter of 2022.

This groundbreaking will provide attendees and media the opportunity to hear from Manatee Memorial Hospital’s Leadership, including Tom McDougal, Chief Executive Officer, Kevin DiLallo, Group Vice President-Florida Region, as well as from Lynne Conlan, Executive Director, South Hillsborough Chamber of Commerce, and Stacy White, Hillsborough County Commissioner, District 4.

“We are honored to be expanding in Hillsborough County with the first freestanding emergency room for Manatee Memorial Hospital. By expanding our emergency services, we can better meet the needs of our growing communities and provide access to emergency care where it is needed. No matter what the emergency, the new ER at Sun City will be equipped to handle everything from minor conditions to stabilizing treatment for major conditions such as heart attack and stroke,” stated Tom McDougal, CEO of Manatee Memorial Hospital.
