Our healing ministry focuses on the whole person – physically, mentally and spiritually.
We are called to improve lives within the community, by providing excellent care for people whose lives have been interrupted by illness or injury, and by promoting health and wellness.
We exist for one reason: to serve the health care needs of people in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia.
Baptist Health is a not-for-profit organization owned by the community – not by shareholders. We are guided by a volunteer board of more than 85 engaged community leaders.
