CEO Welcome

Welcome to North Shore Medical Center!

Mark RacicotOn behalf of our physicians, dedicated colleagues and caring volunteers, I welcome you to North Shore Medical Center’s website.  I hope that you find it helpful – whether it is to answer questions about your health care, find a medical provider to meet your healthcare needs, or learn about the services we provide.

North Shore Medical Center has been a proud part of the community since 1953.  We have evolved over the years from our humble beginnings providing basic care with 108 beds and 97 employees, to a 337-bed acute care medical center.  One thing has remained consistent – our commitment to quality and safety is the number one goal of every colleague and physician of our hospital and it is one that we all strive to accomplish each day. 

North Shore Medical Center was recently designated as a Comprehensive Stroke Center – which allows us to provide a higher level of stroke care for our patients.  We offer a wide array of comprehensive services including Neurosciences and Interventional Neurology, Robotic Surgery, Cardiac Cath Lab, the state’s first JCAHO Accredited Chest Pain Center, Cancer Center with EDGE Radiosurgery technology (the only hospital in Miami-Dade to offer this technology), Comprehensive Breast Institute, and award winning Maternity care with the area’s only Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. North Shore is the first certified Thrombectomy-Capable Stroke Center in Miami.

Additionally, North Shore Medical Center was one of 832 hospitals nationally recognized by the Leapfrog Group in the Fall of 2017 and Spring 2018 for achieving a Hospital Safety Score of “A” in patient safety. The Leapfrog Hospital Survey is the gold standard for comparing hospital’s performance on the national standards of safety, quality and efficiency. North Shore Medical Center was also designated with the American Heart Association’s Get With the Guidelines Stroke Gold Quality Achievement Award with Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus, 2019 as well as the Get With the Guidelines Gold Plus for Heart Failure, 2019.

While we take pride in what we have accomplished, we remain resolute in our focus to addressing the future healthcare needs of our community.  North Shore remains an active participant in community activities and we hope that you will join us for our complimentary community events and educational seminars that we offer throughout the year.  For more information on our events, please feel free to call us at 1-855-767-8772.

Our team is honored that you are considering allowing us to care for you or your family’s healthcare needs.  We are committed to every patient that comes through our doors.

Thank you again for visiting our website, and for your interest in North Shore Medical Center.  If you have any questions while you are reviewing this information during your stay with us, please feel free to contact me or any member of our team.

Best regards to good health,

Mark K. Racicot
