Brevard’s most nationally recognized hospital for quality, safety and experience

For the 25th straight year, no taxes will be assessed to support operations of the North Brevard County Hospital District d/b/a Parrish Medical Center (PMC).

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – For the 25th straight year, no taxes will be assessed to support operations of the North Brevard County Hospital District d/b/a Parrish Medical Center.

Parrish Medical Center’s board of directors voted unanimously during public hearings on Sept. 23 to establish the millage rate and budget for the fiscal year 2020.

Parrish Medical Center is an independent, public, not-for-profit hospital, and state law gives the North Brevard Hospital District the authority to set a tax rate to support hospital operations.

However, the PMC Board of Directors has for 25 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 while also investing tens of millions of dollars back into North Brevard each year in charity care and services. As long as the community continues to support PMC – PMC will be able to continue to support the community.”

“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.
