The healthcare sector performed well in 2018, driven by positive growth in sub-segments such as medical devices, health insurance, hospitals, nursing homes, and pharmaceuticals, which offset losses in biomedical and genetics, home healthcare, medical, and dental supplies. Moving ahead into 2019, as the decade-long expansion faces a period of heightened volatility and risk, the health care sector should benefit from a shift towards more defensive sectors. In a recent sector roundup from Charles Schwab, the firm rated health care at "outperform," citing the group’s strong balance sheets, attractive dividend yields, and improved cost structure.

HCA Healthcare (HCA), a leading healthcare provider with 185 hospitals and approximately 2,000 sites of care in 21 states and the United Kingdom, today announced it has developed an algorithm driven, real-time system to more quickly identify patients with sepsis and help save lives. HCA Healthcare’s Sepsis Prediction and Optimization of Therapy, or SPOT, technology so far has been used with 2.5 million patients and, in conjunction with the use of evidence-based clinical interventions, has helped save an estimated 8,000 lives in the last five years. Sepsis is an overwhelming infection that can lead to total body failure, and approximately 270,000 Americans die from it each year, making it more deadly than breast cancer, prostate cancer, and AIDS combined, according to Sepsis Alliance.

AdventHealth just completed one expansion and announced the start of another as part of its growing Central Florida footprint. The 269-bed AdventHealth Waterman on May 3 opened the first phase of a $74 million, 111,000-square-foot expansion. The phase included an enlargement of the emergency department as well as a 24-bed women and children’s unit that will provide services such as gynecology, labor and delivery, postpartum care and inpatient pediatrics, said AdventHealth Waterman CEO Abel Biri. "Part of the original design was several curtained rooms, which did not allow for privacy at times and was not big enough for the care team, emergent patients who might require more care members and emergency department patients who usually have families there," Biri said.
Central Florida is growing fast, prompting the need for more health care facilities and medical services. Area health care providers, which includes hospitals, insurers and more, are hustling to meet the needs of the nearly 1,500 people moving to the region each week. Central Florida health care executives spoke on those needs and goals during Orlando Business Journal's health care industry roundtable on May 6.
