Nassau County, encompassed by world-class healthcare

The 54-bed Baptist Medical Center Nassau, a highly advanced, extremely well-equipped community hospital on Amelia Island.  Physicians are trained in 24 different specialties, providing a full spectrum of in and out-patient services and 24-hour emergency care.  Baptist Health Nassau has more than doubled their original commitment of $20 million in necessary upgrades and improvement, with more on the way.  In 2009, the $24 million Betty and David Berkman Building for Patient Care opened.  Improvements in surgical suites, the emergency and radiology departments, clinical lab and kitchen were made.  Baptist Nassau was the second community hospital in the state of Florida to fully convert to electronic medical record technology, known to improve patient safety and enhance clinical communication.

Nassau County residents have available to them the Mayo Clinic Florida, St. Vincent's Healthcare, Memorial Hospital and the University of Florida (UF) Health at Jacksonville.  UF Health is the region’s premier  academic health center, a hub for clinical research and the area's only Level I trauma center offering the most effective, efficient trauma transport and critical care treatment available today.  The Baptist Health System includes Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville, Wolfson Children’s Hospital and Baptist Heart Hospital, the area’s only freestanding hospital for heart and vascular care.  Baptist Health is the only system in North Florida to be recognized as a Magnet designated hospital. 


The NCEDB exists because of the generous support of the Nassau County Board of Commissioners, our local municipalities and economic development partners.
