GEO Care was selected by the Department of Children and Families in 1998 to operate South Florida State Hospital, the first in the nation to be completely privatized. GEO Care designed, constructed and financed a completely new facility of 335 beds on the same state-owned property. When the new complex was completed in December 2000, the whole hospital was moved to the new site, the only new state civil psychiatric hospital to have been built in the state in the last 40 years.[1]
