Freestanding Emergency Centers:
As the only community-owed, locally-governed, not-for-profit health system in Northeast Florida, we’re about more than serving the needs of those whose lives have been interrupted by illness or injury. Caring for the entire community is one of our core values, and we are committed to helping to build a healthier community for all of us. This is our social responsibility. To do that, we find solutions to unmet needs affecting the health of our citizens at every stage of life. We partner with nonprofit organizations throughout our region to increase access to health care, enhance social supports for children and the elderly, address broad needs such as hunger and homelessness, and bring focused leadership to critically important issues like mental health.

Assessing the health of our community
In July 2011, Baptist Health, Brooks Rehabilitation, Mayo Clinic, St. Vincent’s HealthCare and UF Health Jacksonville formed the Jacksonville Metropolitan Community Benefit Partnership to conduct the first-ever multi-hospital system and public health sector collaborative community health needs assessment. The Partnership's vision is to improve population health in the region by eliminating the gaps that prevent access to quality, integrated health care and to improve access to resources that support a healthy life style.
