Community Benefits

Letter from Jeff Feasel

You have heard the saying, “the only thing constant is change,” and nothing could be truer in the healthcare industry. 

Halifax Health, your community’s health system for almost 90 years, is in the midst of adjusting to many healthcare changes taking place nationwide.  With a decrease in federal and state funding, we must continue to work more expertly, provide additional transparency, and embrace new technologies all while maintaining our mission to provide access to the highest quality healthcare available in a safe and compassionate manner.

The Halifax Health Board of Commissioners, Halifax Health’s 4,300 Team Members and over 300 Auxilians along with the medical staff have been hard at work investing in the newest life-saving technologies, reducing supply costs and delivering care more efficiently.  Your healthcare system is strong and growing.

As proud area leaders in talent and technology, I want to make special mention of our most recent capital purchase, the GE Revolution CT Scanner.   We are the only health system in Central Florida with this technology which enhances our ability and speed to image, diagnose and prescribe treatment when seconds count.   From a talent perspective, we welcome many new expert physicians to our community all with the passion to provide exceptional care and many services only Halifax Health provides to the community like inpatient behavioral health, trauma surgery and more.

Halifax Health remains committed to maintaining a safe and compassionate environment of care.  We are committed to providing patient centered care for all while reducing the tax dollars your hospital receives.  Our plan is to reduce the amount of taxes we receive to zero over the next three years, while still providing more uncompensated care than all other hospitals in Volusia County combined. 

Yes, times are changing for all of us.  But, we know that together, with your continued support, we will continue to take care of the community we share.

Jeff Feasel
President and CEO
