This week we cut the ribbon on our new Wilson Farrell Surgical Pavilion at Baptist Medical Center Beaches!
The 44,000-square-foot expansion – nearly the size of a football field – is the latest addition to #BaptistBeaches growing medical campus and features the most advanced medical equipment in an ultramodern facility. A wide variety of surgeries will be performed at the new center, from total joint replacements to minimally invasive robotic-assisted procedures. Learn more: http://bit.ly/2JNfqn5
In the event of a #stroke, where you go for care matters.
All three of our free-standing emergency rooms - located at the St. Johns Town Center, Baptist North and Baptist Clay Medical Campus - are now certified as Acute Stroke Ready Centers by the Joint Commission.
These centers join Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville, a certified Comprehensive Stroke Center; and Baptist Medical Center Beaches and Baptist Medical Center South, certified Primary Stroke Centers; as part of our comprehensive stroke network created to ensure patients are never far from life-saving stroke expertise.
Not all hospitals or emergency departments are able to offer this level of care. So before a stroke strikes, know the signs and where to go: baptistjax.com/stroke.
Tag a loved one below as a way to celebrate those who have survived, to offer support to those recently diagnosed and to inspire families and friends. Together, we can #endcancerJAX.

It only takes five minutes to die from blood loss. No matter how fast emergency personnel can reach someone who is hemorrhaging, bystanders are almost always first on the scene. Even without formal medical training, you can help.

Nurses. They’re often the first to know when we need care. They calm our nerves, soothe our pain and help us heal. They have the courage to save lives and the compassion to change lives.
At Baptist Health, we are grateful for the extraordinary commitment of our more than 4,000 nurses, who touch the lives of patients and families all across Northeast Florida every day. Will you join us in giving thanks for all they do? Like this post or leave a comment for your favorite nurse below. #NursesWeek
During #NationalHospitalWeek, you think of doctors and nurses, but at Baptist Health we believe every team member, no matter where they work or what they do, is part of the patient experience and should be recognized. So we celebrate "Health Care Week" instead as a way to thank all of our employees across the health system.
Baptist Health and First Coast YMCA have teamed up to provide local employers with a new approach to employee health. We call our program PATH: Personalized Approach To Health, because we know everyone's health needs and goals are unique.
When employees get moving, lose weight, manage stress, and actively participate in their health, everybody wins. For employers who don’t have an employee health program, PATH is an easy way to start. For those who already have a coordinated approach to employee health, PATH is the way to take it further. Learn more at baptistjax.com/path.
You wouldn’t expect a 37-year-old martial arts champion to have a heart attack, but that’s exactly what happened. To help himself get back into action, he enrolled in our new Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at Baptist Medical Center South. Most people are extremely anxious about exercising after a heart attack, but Javier said "I felt comfortable pushing myself because I knew they had my back." His story: http://bit.ly/2HtGpTz

Today we celebrate FIVE years at our Baptist Clay Medical Campus! In addition to being there when you need us with a full-service Baptist & Wolfson Children's Emergency Center and imaging services, our campus also includes a Wolfson Children's Hospital Specialty Center with services provided by #WolfsonRehab, Nemours Children's Specialty Care, Fleming Island, and the University of Florida College of Medicine - Jacksonville. Other offices on campus include Baptist Primary Care, Baptist Heart Specialists, Baptist Medical Center Cardiac Testing, Borland-Groover Clinic and Orange Park Pediatrics. It’s the best of both worlds -- the specialized care of a hospital, delivered in an outpatient setting close to home. Learn more at baptistclay.com.
Baptist Health is proud to support our team members participating in JASMYN's Annual Strides for Pride 5k run/walk event this weekend. Be sure to visit our booth for free healthcare information and education.
Patients and visitors to our Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville & Wolfson Children's Hospital campus can now park in our new, spacious, state-of-the-art parking garage on Palm Ave. We encourage patients to arrive 10-15 minutes early to allow for the new parking process. Parking is still free, and valet is available at no cost.
Last week we celebrated all of our wonderful volunteers across the Baptist Health system and the countless hours they've given in support of our patients, families, team members & visitors. We could not do our work without them! Please join us in honoring them for #NationalVolunteerWeek.
Anyone over the age of 18 can apply to become a volunteer. We also have volunteer programs for 16-17 year olds during the summer. Learn more: http://bit.ly/2Fiwuhs

Thank you to Aaron Mickel, double lung transplant recipient, along with his wife Stephanie and their daughter Rowan, for sharing his story at our 4th Annual Flag Raising Ceremony at #BaptistJax.

"You are not alone. You are not to blame. You will get help." Valerie Plame Wilson on #postpartumdepression encouraging women and community members at tonight's Sisisky-Kleppinger Lecture @wjctjax.
Changing healthcare for good in our community is what Baptist Health is all about. Access, affordable care, and a lack of knowledge about services and dozens of other factors contributed to a wide range of health care needs among communities in northeast Florida. That is the conclusion of a newly released study commissioned by a group of local health care organizations. The Jacksonville Metropolitan Community Benefit Partnership, which includes Baptist Health and @wolfsonchildrens, recently released its second Community Health Needs Assessment. You can read Baptist and Wolfson's hospital-specific reports at the link in profile.

"Some days, my job can be stressful. But, when a patient hugs me and tells me how thankful she is that I was there for her, I remember why I became a nurse. Everyone who comes here is seen by a board-certified physician and nurse, like me, who really cares. I love reassuring my patients that they are in the right place..." __________________________________________

“They are amazing little dogs,” she said. “They take your mind off your other problems ... I love them." Among the trained therapists helping Baptist Medical Center Beaches joint replacement patients with their physical therapy are toy poodles named Lil Darlyn and Koko! As the patients go through range of motion and other exercises in chairs in the rehabilitation center, registered therapy dogs Lil Darlyn and Koko do the same maneuvers with the help of their owner a few feet away. They even wear the same red, non-skid fall precaution socks. *Story by @timesunionmedia at the link in profile!
