Baptist Health, based in Jacksonville, Florida, is a network of five hospitals, affiliated with 45 primary care offices located throughout Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. All Baptist Hospitals, including Wolfson Children's Hospital have the MAGNET designation, the highest honor a health care organization can receive for excellence in patient care. Baptist Health understands that nothing is more personal than your health, so it's important to be connected to a health system with the most advanced facilities and treatments. That's why Baptist Health is always growing, improving and creating innovative programs—to be there for you at every stage of life.
This system is not affiliated with the Baptist Health System in Arkansas nor Baptist Health South Florida.
For more than 55 years, Baptist Health has provided residents of North Florida and South Georgia with outstanding, comprehensive healthcare services. The original Baptist Memorial Hospital and Wolfson Children's Memorial Hospital in downtown Jacksonville were opened in 1955. Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville is the flagship hospital for Baptist Health and Wolfson Children's Hospital is the region's only pediatric referral inpatient center.
Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville 
In the early 1990s, the hospital's name was changed to Baptist Medical Center Downtown and the hospital is now called Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville. The facility is a tertiary referral hospital in downtown Jacksonville on the south bank of the St. Johns River next to Interstate 95. Baptist Jacksonville provides services in cardiovascular, oncology (cancer) (including gynecological), women's health (including obstetrics and gynecology, orthopaedics, pediatrics, ophthalmology, emergency care (including Life Flight air ambulance, a Children's Emergency Center and hyperbaric medicine), critical care medicine, bloodless surgery, pulmonary services (including an adult/pediatric sleep disorders center), pastoral care, radiology, rehabilitation and psychiatry/psychology. They also have the following regional referral centers: Jacksonville Orthopedic Institute (located in the Reid Medical Building) and Baptist Cancer Institute (located in San Marco).
Baptist Heart Hospital 
The area's only freestanding hospital for heart and vascular care, Baptist Heart Hospital is the centerpiece of Baptist Health's top-ranked heart and vascular program, home to more than 500 physicians, nurses and staff – all with specialized training in providing inpatient and outpatient cardiovascular and thoracic care.
Baptist Nassau 
A full-service hospital opened in Fernandina in 1942, relocating in the 1970s to Lime and South 18th Streets. In 1994, it was acquired by Baptist Health. The hospital converted to an electronic medical record system, one of a handful of community hospitals in the nation to do so. The hospital's modern Berkman Building features 48 `spacious patient suites equipped with the latest amenities.
Wolfson Children’s Hospital 
Morris David Wolfson (father of Louis Wolfson), made a $500,000 donation in 1946 to create a children’s health care facility in Jacksonville. The facility opened in 1955 as a wing in the Baptist Memorial Hospital with 50 beds and gradually grew to the point that the decision was made in 1971 to consolidate the services into a separate facility with the name, Wolfson Children’s Hospital. Pediatric healthcare partners include Nemours Children's Clinic, Jacksonville and the University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville. UF-Jacksonville's Pediatric Residency Program uses the hospital as its main pediatric teaching facility. One of the best children's hospitals in America, Wolfson Children's Hospital delivers specialized care to children from birth to age 18+ with a full range of needs, from routine to complex. Expanding their coverage further, Wolfson Children's Hospital has opened regional specialty centers in Fleming Island and Lake City, and will open centers in 2013 in Daytona Beach and Brunswick, Georgia.
Baptist Beaches 
Beaches Hospital originally opened in Jacksonville Beach in 1961 and was replaced by the First Coast Medical Center in November 1988. In 1990, Baptist Health bought the tax-supported facility and changed its name to Baptist Medical Center Beaches. Baptist Beaches combines the personalized care of a community hospital with the sophistication of a fulll-service medical center. Recently addind cardiac catheterization to its growing capabilities, Baptist Beaches provides the only 24-hour ER east of the Intracoastal Waterway.
Baptist South 
To meet the expanding needs of southern Duval and St. Johns counties, Baptist South was constructed and opened in February 2005. In June 2007, construction began on a new patient care tower that further increased patient care capacity, including a Newborn Intensive Care Unit that is part of Wolfson Children's Hospital's services. In September 2011, Baptist South opened a new state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization lab. The purpose of this new lab was to meet a growing need for immediate cardiac catheterization situations and to facilitate a diagnostic location used to evaluate or confirm the presence of heart disease, evaluate muscle function of the heart and determine the need for further treatment. Physicians are now able to perform diagnostic and interventional peripheral vascular catheterizations, as well as diagnostic cardiac catheterizations in the new lab. Baptist South has more than doubled in size since its opening to provide state-of-the-art health care to the southern Duval and northern St. Johns counties. Recent additions include minimally invasive robotic surgery and a dramatically expanded ER.
Baptist Clay 
Featuring a 24-hour freestanding Emergency Center for children and adults, Baptist Clay Medical Campus in Fleming Island includes diagnostics and imaging and a three-story physician office building for convenience. The Baptist/Wolfson Children's Emergency Center opened at Baptist Clay on May 1, 2013, along with Diagnostics & Imaging at Baptist Clay (providing imaging for adults and children). The Wolfson Children's Specialty Center, which will include pediatric subspecialty medical services provided by Nemours Children's Clinic, Jacksonville and the University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville and children's rehabilitation, will open in September 2013 Physicians' offices, including Baptist Heart Specialists, will move into the Medical Office Building at Baptist Clay throughout the spring and summer of 2013.
In 1985, the Baptist Health Foundation was created to assist Baptist Health’s commitment to care by assisting in fundraising.
