St. Vincent's HealthCare


St.Vincent's Medical Center

St. Vincent's HeathCare is a faith-based, not-for-profit health system that has been serving the people of Jacksonville and the surrounding communities for more than 87 years. St. Vincent's is widely recognized for excellence in patient care. From delivering healthy, happy babies to helping elders through their final years with dignity, St. Vincent's offer a continuum of care that is unsurpassed in North Florida. St. Vincent's can do that because our physicians and staff are experts who take pride in living the mission of caring for the sick and poor. St. Vincent's currently offers the area's top cardiology and oncology programs. In 2003, St. Vincent's was recognized as one of the top Heart programs in the U.S., and the highest ranking program in Florida by U.S.News & World Report magazine. See more on this recognition here. While dedicated to serving all, St. Vincent's places special emphasis on helping the poor and less fortunate. St. Vincent's award-winning outreach ministries go far beyond the medical center in caring for the community through programs such as the Mobile Health Outreach Ministry, Parish Nurse Ministry, School Nurse Program, Seton Center for Women and Infants and more. Our mission is based in strong traditions of faith. Founded by the Daughters of Charity in 1916, St. Vincent's is now part of Ascension Health, which was formed in 1999 when the Daughters merged their healthcare ministry with the Sisters of St. Joseph Health System. St. Vincent's Mission and Values form the framework of our commitment to patient care.


Ascension Health is the nation's largest Catholic and largest nonprofit health system, serving patients through a network of hospitals and related health facilities providing acute care services, long-term care, community health services, psychiatric, rehabilitation and residential care.

Sponsored by four provinces of the Daughters of Charity, the Sisters of St Joseph of Nazareth and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet.

Ascension Health is committed to caring for those who are most in need in the communities we serve. Our Mission, Vision and Values guide our actions and provide the foundation on which our ministry is built. We strive to bring spiritually centered, holistic care that sustains and improves the health of our communities.

Our Call to Action represents the conviction of every one of our local and national leaders that we are stronger together than we are alone. Our Hospitals and Related Health Facilities are staffed with over 100,000 associates located in 20 states and the District of Columbia. The Sponsorship of Ascension Health is built on a legacy of healing and service and invites collaboration with others who share our Mission.

Our Leadership is comprised of men and women who have committed their talents and experience to transforming healthcare. Our work is enabled by an Operating Model that supports leadership across our ministry and provides local hospitals and related health facilities with the authority and accountability to make good decisions for the communities they serve.

The definition of modern health care is literally changing by the minute. There are new opportunities and challenges. We are committed to the provision of compassionate and comprehensive quality care and invite you to explore the opportunities available to you to partner with us in accomplishing our mission.
