HCA closes Sister Emmanuel Hospital in Miami

Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Healthcare closed Sister Emmanuel Hospital, a Miami-based long-term care hospital, Dec. 1.

A Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act filed in October said the hospital closure would affect 97 employees. At that time, the hospital said some of the employees could transfer to other HCA facilities.

"There are a number of open positions within our affiliated facilities in the area, and we believe most of our affected employees will find employment opportunities," Sister Emmanuel Hospital said in a letter accompanying its Oct. 3 WARN notice.

Sister Emmanuel Hospital had a 90.1 percent occupancy rate in 2017 and recorded a $152,210 profit on net revenue of $12.1 million, according to the South Florida Business Journal, which cited information from the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration.
