Dr. P. Phillips Hospital
When Dr. Philip Phillips purchased his first orange grove on the shores of Sand Lake in 1905, he never imagined that a comprehensive health care facility would later emerge from that same site. Serving the residents and visitors of Southwest Orlando since opening as Sand Lake Hospital in 1985, Dr. P. Phillips Hospital, a part of Orlando Health, was renamed in 2007 to honor the citrus pioneer. In November 2008, a new five-story tower doubled the size of the hospital. The 330,000-square-foot addition resulted in more surgical suites, a new outpatient infusion area, larger lab and pharmacy areas, and enhanced cardiac catheterization suites. The hospital’s emergency department provides care 24 hours daily and is the busiest ED in the metro Orlando area. Beyond emergency care, the ED offers an accredited chest pain program to help identify causes of chest pain and rule out heart attack. The ED also has a designated stroke center, where early diagnosis and treatment can significantly improve a patient’s chances of recovery. Advanced inpatient and same-day surgical services at Dr. P. Phillips Hospital include general surgery, neurosurgery and vascular surgery, as well as urological, colorectal and orthopedic surgeries. Minimally invasive and robotic surgeries are available with the da Vinci system, which uses state-of-the-art robotic technology to virtually extend the surgeon’s eyes and hands into the surgical field. This means reduced complications and shorter hospital stays and recovery time. There are many other specialty services located on or near the Dr. P. Phillips Hospital campus. The Comprehensive Wound Care Center offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat chronic wounds associated with diabetes, vascular disorders and other health problems, while the Multiple Sclerosis Comprehensive Care Center of Central Florida is committed to improving the quality of life for individuals with multiple sclerosis. M. D. Anderson Cancer Center Orlando has recently started providing cancer services on the campus of Dr. P. Phillips Hospital, bringing exceptional cancer care directly to those living in Southwest Orlando. Diagnostic equipment — mammography, ultrasound, CT scans, magnetic resonance imaging and nuclear medicine — is housed in the newly renovated imaging area. In addition to larger, more comfortable surroundings, digital imaging is now available. For years, X-rays were printed on photographic film, and darkrooms were necessary to process the images. Now, with this new technology, Dr. P. Phillips Hospital is filmless. A doctor can review images on a computer from his office (or any Orlando Health hospital), often just minutes following the examination. Adding to this, patients receive images on a small compact disc rather than large, cumbersome films. For more than 25 years, the staff of Dr. P. Phillips Hospital has cared for the Southwest Orlando community. With comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services and advanced diagnostic imaging tools, they are there when it matters most.
