About Baptist Health

Baptist Health’s care for the community spans generations. Together, we’re the largest group of people in Northeast Florida focused on innovative health care for patients, improving the health equity of our neighbors, and creating a welcoming workplace for team members where everyone’s voice is heard.

  • We’re a Family

    When caring for people is in your DNA, caring for each other just comes naturally. Whether we’re celebrating a team member’s birthday in the breakroom, you’re getting support from our spiritual care team after a difficult case, or receiving a message from leadership with understanding that world events affect us all, we’re a family that supports, listens and cares.

  • Everybody’s Welcome

    With 14,000+ team members, that’s a lot of differences, and we celebrate them all. Baptist Health is committed to a culture of inclusion, respect and empathy, where differences and new ideas makes us stronger, and all people feel valued. One way we do this is by bringing together those who share common interests or life experiences through 10+ Employee Resource Groups, including young professionals, physicians, advanced practice professionals, veterans, BaptistPRIDE, BaptistBOLD and more.

  • Creating a Healthier Community

    Our involvement in the community may start with the giving hearts and volunteering hands of our employees, but it doesn’t stop there. Baptist Health partners with community organizations and civic leaders to lead initiatives that address real health inequities of our neighbors and then use our resources to lead efforts.

  • Excellence Everywhere

    We’re more than the awards and recognition we receive (but we do have them!) Providers choose Baptist Health because of our outstanding reputation for quality, safety, and excellence in patient care. Our modern facilities and offices provide a supportive and advanced environment where you can succeed in delivering top-notch care to our patients.
