Southwest Florida’s numbers are nowhere near the priciest in the country — or even in Florida. Most area hospitals came in slightly above the state average of $19,046 in spending per patient. Lakewood Ranch Medical Center and Manatee Memorial Hospital, both part of Universal Health Services Inc., had the highest costs in the region, while Englewood Community Hospital had the least expensive, nearly matching the national average of $17,884.
