Hollywood Hills Rehab Center Where Twelve Died After Hurricane Irma Loses License

The Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration has revoked the license of the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills located at 1200 N. 35th Avenue.

Governor Rick Scott directed the Agency for Health Care Administration to issue an emergency moratorium for The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills after twelve people died when the air conditioning system failed following Hurricane Irma in September 2017.

Per the Agency for Health Care Administration investigation’s initial findings, residents of the facility did not receive timely medical care because the trained medical professionals at the facility overwhelmingly delayed calling 911.

Tragically, patients were not timely evacuated to the air-conditioned hospital located across the street. These patients ended up at the hospital with body temperatures of, for example, 109.9 degrees Fahrenheit, 108.5 degrees Fahrenheit, 108.3 degrees Fahrenheit, and 107 degrees Fahrenheit – far too late to be saved.
