Our Story

Baptist Health Care (BHC) comprises three hospitals, two medical parks, one behavioral health location and an institute for orthopaedics and sports medicine, with locations throughout Northwest Florida and South Alabama region.


Our Values

Our organization dates back to 1951. We are the only locally owned nationally recognized health care system in the area with a personal interest in being your care provider. Our passion for caring is evident through involvement in our community’s health. We’ve made it our Mission to help people throughout life's journey.


Our Goal

Our team is award-winning and for patients who experience a serious diagnosis that would normally require travel outside the region, we collaborate with a national leader in medical research to provide answers here at home. Our membership in the Mayo Clinic Care Network places evidence-based medical research and clinical innovation at our fingertips. Our physician experts and Mayo Clinic experts work on some very difficult cases so that you don’t have to leave the area for care.
