This place is the best! My 25 yr son was admitted here after being in an induced coma.We never thought he would walk or talk again after they removed him from the ventilator. Health South was recommended by friends here in Sarasota I went on line and was frightened by some of the reviews. The place he was is the worst hospital in Florida. We figured any place will be better than where he was. Debra Burns his case worker was fantastic and organized the transfer. She kept me up to date in everything. They arranged pickup in Orlando to Sarasota and I was notified when he arrived late in the evening. His goals were clearly outlined and what will be done to achieve them. He needed most importantly to become mobile again and to gain weight along with keeping his blood levels correct so he does not become acidotic. The therapists are upbeat and very motivational. The nurses were caring, competent and pleasant. Dr Hume took the time to answer my questions and concerns. The place was spotless and rooms inviting and comfortable. Whenever I called I was able to reach him. Whenever I visited there was a chart and various cards of specialists who visited him. A very nice touch was they hang the picture up of the case worker and doctor in charge for the day.This place is well run and organized. Within 2 days my son's color came back, he was slowly walking and smiling. He was discharged after one week of working hard during PT and all the encouragement of the staff. They are equipped for other health conditions such as my son's RTA or respiratory and other illness. In no way am I trying to diminish anyone's negative experiences but feel it is so important for families to decide what type of hospital should a loved one be at. Do they want a place designed for loved ones to lead active and independent lives? Then this is the place. My son is now back to daily living at home.This place is a well organized, caring, clean and positive environment!

I could write a volume of great reviews for this hospital. My husband was there in Jan. for 10 days, and my 92 y.o. father-in-law just recently for 2 wks. This hosp. was recommended to us for my husband by quite a few people who had experienced the great care that my loved ones rec'd. ALL of the staff, from the person at the front desk to the doctors in charge, were PLEASANT, SMILING, CARING, HELPFUL, etc., etc . They were always there for us. And the therapy experience was very healing. Most rehab facilities have just an hour or two of therapy/day...HealthSouth provided 3 hrs./day...some days more. I will recommend this hosp. at every opportunity.
