Baptist Health - Jacksonville

Baptist Health is Northeast Florida’s largest private employer, with nearly 9,000 employees. We are the preferred healthcare system of the region, Magnet-recognized, and voted one of the best places to work according to Modern Healthcare.

Founded in 1955, Baptist Health serves families throughout the region with high-quality, comprehensive care for every stage of life. Our health system is distinguished by four key pillars:

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.

-Locally governed:
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.
