BREVARD COUTNY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA — For the 23rd straight year, no taxes will be assessed to support operations of the North Brevard County Hospital District/Parrish Medical Center.
Parrish Medical Center is located at 951 N. Washington Avenue, Titusville, Florida. The 210-bed, not-for-profit acute care public medical center has been serving Brevard County for nearly 60 years.
Parrish Medical Center’s board of directors voted unanimously during public hearings on Sept. 18 to establish the millage rate and budget for fiscal year 2018.
Parrish Medical Center is a public community hospital, and state law gives the North Brevard Hospital District (d/b/a Parrish Medical Center) the authority to set a tax rate to support hospital operations.
However, unlike most public hospitals, the Parrish Medical Center Board of Directors has for 23 years chosen not to use tax dollars as a means of funding the hospital.
“PMC serves the community’s health through compassionate and exceptional care and is recognized as one of the nation’s best in clinical care, patient safety and patient experience,” said PMC Board Chairman Herman A. Cole, Jr.
“We are pleased to continue to take this position on behalf of the community we serve. In fact, PMC invests tens of millions of dollars into North Brevard each year.”
