Signature HealthCARE to partner with NFCH

Of course, Northwest Florida Community Hospital is tremendously successful. “We were successful in turning the hospital around in approximately 42 months,” Schlenker said.

Last year NFCH was recognized by the Florida Hospital Association as the most improved hospital in the state of Florida for hospitals of 150 beds or less. There are about 150 hospitals of that size in the state.

The hospital was also honored last year by being named the Washington County Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year.

Most recently, the hospital was listed in Inc. Magazine’s “5,000 fastest growing business” list, which includes all of the United States.

“When you think about how small the chances are of being on that list, it’s incredible,” Schlenker said. “Something like .001 percent chance. There are five million registered businesses in the U.S., and there were 650,000 that were considered for the list.”
