Omg!!! Coming from a state of top notch facilities and seeing this antiquated building is disturbing. Staff is less than helpful and the only person that gave us the time of day is the one that says we need to pay daily for services. Do a swab on the patient floors between the non sealed floors would be an interesting find. Rooms are dirty and roaches were seen.

Florida Medical Center is the worst hospital that I have ever been involved with. It took over 2,hrs. For a nurse to respond to my husband call button on most calls. It was dirty, the nurses were extremely rude and I wouldn't ever go there again. It is sad, because 15 years ago it was one of the best hospitals in Broward County. My husband was released to a skilled nursing facility today and they are nicer and cleaner.
