Florida Medical Center Merges with North Shore Medical Center

Effective June 1, 2009, two Tenet Hospitals, Florida Medical Center (FMC) and North Shore Medical Center have merged. Both campus will remain open and continue functioning as normal, with no expected reduction in services. Florida Medical Center will be renamed North Shore Medical Center - FMC Campus.

Merging the two hospitals enables them to capitalize on synergies to provide better, more efficient care to the communities they serve. It would allow a better recruit of specialized physicians, share service line expertise and consolidate back-off operations.

FMC is known for the cardiovascular services through its Heart Institute of Florida and Bariatric surgery, while North Shore Medical Center provides significant Women and Maternity services. North Shore Medical Center is located on 95th Street in Miami. Both are owned by Tenet Hospitals.
