West Kendall, FL, hospital expected to open in a year

Miami Herald, April 20, 2010

Baptist Health System's new West Kendall, FL, hospital will be complete in about a year. Long waits for emergency care, traffic, and the rapid population growth in West Kendall were the top three reasons West Kendall residents cited in 4,513 letters of support for constructing the new hospital. Jason Virelli, Baptist Health South Florida vice president of planning, said that in 2009 there were 197,000 people living in the area. The number is projected to increase to 214,000 by 2014, the Miami Herald reports.
