The newly renamed Medical Center of Trinity on State Road 54 will open its doors to emergency and transferred patients on Tuesday and to the general public the next day.

TRINITY It's official. After years of planning and building, the hospital known since 1971 as Community Hospital will move Tuesday from New Port Richey to its new campus on State Road 54 and open with a new name: Medical Center of Trinity.

Hospital staff will move patients from the old site, which will be renamed Medical Center of Trinity — West Pasco Campus. The old campus at 5637 Marine Parkway will continue to serve the hospital's mental health patients as well as provide physical and occupational therapy. The move leaves Morton Plant North Bay, which last year completed a major expansion and is now adding new operating suites, as New Port Richey's only acute care hospital.

Community Hospital employed a consultant called Healthcare Transition to develop a move plan over the past year.

"Our plan has been reviewed and practiced and is focused on a safe move for our patients ensuring their care and comfort through every step of the process," hospital CEO Leigh Massengill said in a news release.

Owned by the Nashville-based for-profit chain HCA, the new Trinity hospital is a 236-bed acute care facility with emergency care, pediatrics, women's health and obstetrics, heart and vascular, men's health, cancer care, spine and orthopedics, surgical specialties, primary care and neurosurgery.

The transition into the new facility on SR 54, just east of Little Road, begins at 7 a.m. Tuesday, when the Emergency Services department opens at the Trinity facility. Paramedics, ambulance companies and other agencies have been notified that the old ER at Community Hospital will close at that time.

Access to the Medical Center of Trinity on Tuesday will be limited to the hospital's health care team, registered visitors for patients transferred from Community Hospital and those needing emergency care. Normal visitation and access will be allowed at 8 a.m. Wednesday.
