UF Health Jacksonville

UF Health JacksonvilleUF Health Jacksonville is a 695-bed private, not-for-profit medical, teaching and research facility serving Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia.

As an innovator in health care, UF Health Jacksonville provides state-of-the-art services. These include a regional pediatric trauma center, regional level III neonatal intensive care unit, developmental evaluation program and a stabilization unit for children requiring inpatient psychiatric care. This hospital is also the first in Florida and one of the few in the nation to have a state-of-the-art proton beam cancer treatment facility on its campus.

UF Health Jacksonville's greatest achievement is the successful integration of patient care, education and research with the medical services of the UFCOM-J. With about 3,400 employees to service the health needs of the region, UF Health Jacksonville meets its commitment to excellence in medical education and quality medical care.
