UF Health Jacksonville

UF Health Jacksonville

UF 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 Level I adult and pediatric trauma center, regional Level III neonatal intensive care unit, developmental evaluation program and the stabilization unit for children requiring inpatient psychiatric care.

The center has become one of the finest teaching hospitals in the Southeast, due largely to the affiliation with the University of Florida Health Science Center - Jacksonville. This affiliation has served to further develop the other University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville medical residency and fellowship programs offered on the Jacksonville campus.

UF CARES, located on the UF Health Jacksonville campus and the Children’s Medical Services building, is the only comprehensive pediatric AIDS program in Northeast Florida. The UF center is unique because of its comprehensive family centered medical care for HIV infected/exposed infants, children, adolescents, women and their families. Since the center began more than 20 years ago, it has expanded in order to care for more than 1,000 adult, adolescent and pediatrics patients annually across North Florida and South Georgia and has become a national leader in HIV/AIDS research and care.

Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Tower was opened with an expansion of services, including a new neurosurgical suite, iMRI and iCT technology, a cardiovascular operating room and cardiovascular intensive care unit, a day hospital, a progressive care unit and a new Larry J. Freeman Behavioral Health Center.

The Wolfson Children's Hospital provides technologically advanced, family-centered inpatient care in a smoothly functioning, supportive facility. Its design and layout de-emphasize typical hospital-like features, which some children and parents may find threatening. There is a conference room and a consultation room on each floor. There are two private on-call rooms with private baths on each patient floor. Wolfson Children's Hospital embodies our community's commitment to children's health and to pediatric education and research.
