Wolfson Children's Hospital is part of Northeast Florida's largest locally owned and governed health system, Baptist Health. Our hospital-based system includes five nationally accredited hospitals, with 899 beds. All of our hospitals have received Magnet™ designation, an international quality designation enjoyed by less than five percent of hospitals in the country. To date, Baptist Health is the only health care system in America whose five hospitals simultaneously have achieved Magnet designation, the nation's highest honor for excellence in patient care.
Founded in 1955, Baptist Health is Northeast Florida's most comprehensive health care system, providing unparalleled access to quality care at every stage of life. Baptist Health's adult hospitals are strategically located throughout the community we serve.
Situated on the south bank of the St. Johns River, Baptist Medical Center is the central hub of our system, providing the highest level of medical and surgical care using the latest technologies, such as the city's first robotic-assisted surgical device, the da Vinci® Surgical System. Our flagship downtown facility also includes Baptist Heart Hospital, providing state-of-the-art cardiovascular care in a tranquil riverfront setting.
Baptist Medical Center Beaches provides beaches residents with close-to-home access to comprehensive, high-tech medical and surgical care. Providing the only hospital-based, 24-hour emergency service at the beach, this facility is known for the quality and compassion of its staff, who treat patients like family.
Located in Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island, Baptist Medical Center Nassau offers a wide range of medical and surgical services supported by the latest technologies. Baptist Nassau was one of the first community hospitals to convert to electronic medical record systems for enhanced patient safety and quality of care.
Opened in 2005, Baptist Medical Center South is Jacksonville's first "hospital of the future," blending an all-digital information environment with a family-friendly philosophy of care. In 2009, a new patient care tower will open to better serve residents of south Jacksonville and northern St. Johns County, and will include a level II 10-bed Newborn Intensive Care Unit.
