Nurturing Our Community to Greatness

Florida Hospital’s mission is to extend the healing ministry of Christ. It is a calling that reaches beyond our hospital walls and into the communities we serve. The Community Impact team brings this mission to life in the work that we do, which includes collaborating with other organizations and members of our community to pilot programs, fund initiatives, mobilize our volunteer workforce, and influence positive change and health outcomes.

In the Old Testament, Jeremiah wrote, “Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you…because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” (Jeremiah 29:7)

In that spirit, it is Florida Hospital’s hope that with a helping hand, our communities and neighbors will prosper and be nurtured to greatness.
