Since 1957 we've been part of the Citrus County community, growing from a single community hospital into a system with 204 licensed beds, outpatient rehab, diagnostic imaging, laboratory services, clinics and family care centers. Over the years, Citrus Memorial has seen a lot of growth.
What started as a small hospital began to grow in the 1970s when a bed tower was added to the facility. After that addition, a boom began. A second bed tower, medical office building and primary care offices throughout the county were built. Two walk-in clinics, multiple rehabilitation centers and several laboratory collection centers later - Citrus Memorial has become the second largest employer in Citrus County and a beacon of hope for our community.
Join us in Florida's unspoiled nature coast. You will find a sense of community, city parks, miles of walking and bicycling trails, planned programs and activities provide fun for the entire family. Citrus County is rich in natural resources and recreational opportunities.
