You have your answer below. However, because those hospitals are closer to the house you have selected at 1520 NE 2nd AV, it doesn't necessarily mean you will end up there in case of emergencies. It will all depend on where you (or your loved ones) are when an emergency occurs. The EMS always haul emergency patients to the nearest hospital. Secondly, if you have a local doctor who refers you to a specialist and that specialist is out west, or north or in Deerfield, or south, and that specialist says you need surgery, that specialist will check you in the hospital nearest to his/her office. So, it really doesn't matter that much where hospitals are unless you never wander very far away from your home.

Broward General hospital used to be sloppy back in the 70ies through the mid 90ies but they have turned themselves around 180 degrees, rebuilt themselves by adding one of the best cardiac and trauma center in the US. Now, they have an outstanding reputation. I have friends who have been treated there in the past 10 years and they were extremely pleased by the care they received. Holy Cross has been the most revered and respected in the 23 years I have been living in Ft Lauderdale. Imperial Point Hospital is also well regarded. Here is a link of all Broward County Hospitals: http://bcma.com/hospitals.php.

I hope that helps you.

Ann is correct you have Broward General, which is not the nearest but Holy Cross is the closest to that address. In this area you as well have a lot of small clinics around.
I have attached a link for you where you can see the clinics and hospital in that neighborhood:


If you have any more question let me know.

Good morning, The closest hospitals in the area would be Broward General, which is south of this home on SE 17th Street and Andrew's avenue and the other which is north of this home is Holy Cross Hospital, which is on Commercial Blvd and US1. This is a nicely updated home but seems a bit overpriced for the area, which is probably why it's been on the market so long. I'd be happy to send you some more options if you'd like. Feel free to reach me at 954-612-0439 or annlchamberlain@hotmail.com.
