About North Ridge Medical Centre

Business Philosophy

North Ridge Medical Center recognizes the evolving nature of the medical industry and firmly believes that the future of health care lies with the formation of partnerships. These partnerships — with consumers, physicians, payers and employees — contribute to the ultimate goal of providing quality health care.

As a member of Tenet South Florida HealthSystem, an integrated health care delivery network, North Ridge Medical Center is committed to providing an environment that fosters strong ethical standards with diligence and integrity. These corporate principles help us deliver quality patient care to the communities we serve.

General Facts

The fact is, the more cardiac procedures a medical facility performs the greater your chances of survival, according to the New England Journal of Medicine. And with 25 years of experience, North Ridge Medical Center’s Cardiac & Vascular Institute continues to perform more open heart surgeries than any other facility in Broward and South Palm Beach counties. Nationally recognized as being in the top 5% of the nation for cardiovascular services by HealthGrades (see What’s New) it is easy to understand why physicians and patients throughout South Florida trust the Institute for quality cardiac care.

The 332-bed hospital offers a wide range of services, including the NeuroScience Center, orthopedics, interventional radiology and interventional neuro radiology, general medical/surgical care, intensive care, outpatient surgery services, rehabilitation, breast center, diabetes and metabolism clinic, wound care, 24-hour emergency services and a variety of wellness/educational opportunities.

The hospital is fully accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation for Healthcare Organizations, and it is an active member with the South Florida Hospital Association and American Hospital Association.

Message From the CEO

Since the day North Ridge Medical Center first opened its doors in 1975, our mission has been to provide quality, compassionate, cost-effective healthcare that is responsive to the needs of our patients and community. As a result of this commitment, we received recognition as the number one hospital system provider of cardiac services in 2001 in Florida by HealthGrades, a health grading system that reviews more than 5,000 hospitals.

Being responsive includes keeping readers like you informed about the progress that we are making as we continually strive to enhance the quality of your medical care. To that end, we’ve prepared this web site for you to educate yourself on our award winning services, wellness opportunities and participate in patient communication via emails (see home page).

At North Ridge Medical Center, we take pride in our role as a valued community partner. With the assistance of the Tenet Healthcare Foundation, we donated $20,000 to Broward County Fire Rescue for the purchase of portable automated external defibrillator (AED) devices. These AED devices were placed in targeted senior communities and public areas in Broward County. In addition, North Ridge Medical Center and the Tenet Foundation contribute more than $50,000 towards local schools and not for profit organizations in the area.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our hospital, and we welcome the opportunity to be of service to you.
