Our Story

Baptist Health Care has been transforming health care in our community for more than 70 years. From our beginnings with a single hospital that opened in 1951 to the present, we have provided groundbreaking care. We will continue that legacy into our future. Baptist is the area’s only remaining not-for-profit health system that is based and led from within the Northwest Florida area. Our corporate office is located in Pensacola, Florida. All decisions that impact our community get made locally, not at a corporate headquarters in another state.

Baptist continuously strives to be a national leader in quality and service. Our organization includes three hospitals, four medical parks, Andrews Institute for Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine and a large network of primary care and specialty physicians. And care is provided at all locations by dedicated, compassionate and experienced teams.
