In evaluating the performance and quality of hospitals in Florida, several sources provide insights into hospitals that have been rated poorly based on different criteria:

  1. Halifax Health Medical Center in Port Orange: This hospital received the lone "F" grade in Florida, according to the hospital safety grades for 2022​​.

  2. Medicare Penalties for Patient Safety Incidents: Medicare penalized 40 hospitals in Florida for having too many patients with infections or complications. Some of these hospitals include Bayfront Health St. Petersburg, Bayfront Health Seven Rivers (now Bravera Health Seven Rivers), Palms of Pasadena in St. Petersburg, Lakeland Regional, St. Petersburg General, Winter Haven Hospital, and South Florida Baptist Hospital in Plant City. Notably, Bayfront Health St. Petersburg was penalized for the sixth consecutive year.

  3. Leapfrog’s Hospital Safety Grades: Three hospitals in Florida received a "D" safety grade by the hospital watchdog Leapfrog. These are Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare, Halifax Health Medical Center – Port Orange, and Halifax Health Medical Center – Daytona Beach. These were the only hospitals in the state to score lower than a "C" in the latest evaluations. Halifax Health Medical Center – Port Orange, which had previously received an "F" grade, was noted as the lowest-rated hospital in Florida​​.

These assessments indicate that the mentioned hospitals have faced significant challenges in maintaining patient safety and quality care, as evidenced by the grades and penalties received.
