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.
