Hospital Information

Welcome to Memorial Hospital. Founded in 1969 by a group of physicians and community leaders, Memorial has built a strong tradition of providing quality healthcare to Northeast Florida for over 40 years.

Today, Memorial Hospital has emerged as a state-of-the-art 418-bed, full service, acute care medical facility. For the second year in a row Memorial has been named a U.S. News & World Report best hospital and our patient safety scores, ranked by independent organizations, are some of the best in the area.

Memorial Hospital is the first hospital in the United States to receive the Joint Commission’s Disease Specific Certification for Sepsis, meaning we are taking the lead in preventing and treating a medical condition that kills more people each year than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. Memorial also received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines® Stroke Gold Plus Performance Achievement Award for the third year in a row. The award recognizes Memorial’s commitment and success in implementing excellent care for stroke patients, according to evidence-based guidelines.

Other distinctions include the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Primary Stroke Centers, which recognizes centers that make exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes in stroke care. Our Bariatric Center is an American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence designation. Memorial’s Breast Center is the first American College of Radiology (ACR) Breast Imaging Center of Excellence in Jacksonville, and we earned full accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC).

Fully accredited by the Joint Commission of Accreditation (JCA), Memorial Hospital is known as a leader in innovative healthcare with a reputation maintained through our excellent staff, along with technological advances, growth and expansion to meet the ongoing needs of our community. Memorial has a team of more than 800 physicians and a diverse and highly skilled work force of more than 1,800 employees, whose mission is to provide the community with the highest quality of healthcare.
