Mease Dunedin Hospital
From your brain to your back, from your hips to your knees, neurosurgery, orthopaedic and spine care are expanding fields of medicine. As the complexity and demand for these procedures grows, Mease Dunedin Hospital is evolving with a new critical care unit and the construction of a state-of-the-art surgery department.
Located in the heart of Dunedin, Mease Dunedin Hospital opened under the guidance of Dr. Jack Mease in 1937 as a 19-bed hospital with a laboratory, cafeteria and operating room. City residents encouraged Dr. Mease to build a hospital, with the community's help, to serve the health care needs of those living here. Locals worked on the hospital's construction, taking only partial payments in cash for their labor. The balance was taken in medical care. Mease Dunedin truly was a hospital built by the community to serve the community. And it still is.
Our 143-bed facility is undergoing a $19-million renovation/expansion, including a new Critical Care Unit that provides functionality, accessibility and peace of mind for patients, visitors, and staff. With an invested $20 million in improvements over the past five years, every patient room at Mease Dunedin has recently been upgraded and 70 percent of rooms are private.
At Mease Dunedin Hospital, we are passionate about delivering advanced medical and surgical care, with an emphasis on treating neurological and spine conditions. Other areas of expertise at our facility include orthopedics, weight loss surgery, stroke care, 24-hour emergency care, intensive care and imaging services. We've also achieved re-certification as a MagnetTM Hospital and Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission.
