Medical/Surgical Services

The medical/surgical practice at UF Health Shands Hospital is vast in its size and scope. We emphasize a total patient care delivery model, with all newly hired RNs receiving orientation at the hospital, department and unit levels.

Every med/surg unit includes an RN support system consisting of a nurse manager, clinical coordinator, LPNs, PCAs, central administrative assistant and unit clerks. Certain units also feature the added strength of clinical nurse specialists and other program experts.

A wide variety of best-practice med/surg units are housed in the expansive Patient Services Building on our main campus.
