No, you are not UNLESS you signed papers with the hospitals and doctors’ offices to be responsible for her bills—to be the “responsible party” for the bills.

Florida is not a community property state. So, debts accumulated by a spouse during the marriage are NOT automatically presumed to be community/marital debts.
