St. Johns County – State’s Healthiest County

There are good reasons why St. Johns has been rated the healthiest county in Florida for eleven straight years 2012-2022 by County Health Rankings. The main reason is the diverse range of high-quality medical facilities operating in the County. Ascension, Baptist Health, HCA Florida Healthcare, the Mayo Clinic, and UF Health St Johns all operate in St. Johns County and provide unmatched services to both residents and visitors to the county.

Ascension St. Vincent’s St.Johns County

Their specialties include neurology, cancer care, orthopedics, sports medicine and performance, and endocrinology.  When emergency care is needed, whether heart attract, stroke, trauma, or others, Ascension St. Vincent’s is often the entity that is pursued.  They also provide a mix of emergency care for children with their family-centered care.

Baptist HealthPlace at Nocatee

One of Baptist Health’s newest additions is Baptist HealthPlace at Nocatee, which opened in 2020 and was designed around fitness, wellness, medical and therapeutic needs.  The two-story, 83,000-square-foot center provides traditional services like Heart, ENT, gastrointestinal, and Lab Services.  In addition to these traditional services, the facility integrates truly unique elements and partners.

Their Baptist Medical Center South, located about 18 miles from Ponte Vedra Beach near Interstate 95, is ranked among the top 5% of hospitals in Florida by U.S. News and World Reports.  One of their more recognized specialties is their Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine. They provide state-of-the-art, single-person hyperbaric chambers that help patients resume normal, healthy lives.

Mayo Clinic

The Mayo Clinic, located just north of Ponte Vedra in Jacksonville, is rated Florida’s number one hospital by U.S. News & World Reports in their Hospital’s Best report. Mayo’s international recognition allows it to attract patients from not only other parts of the U.S. but also from around the world.

Mayo is particularly recognized for its capabilities in helping patients in their battles with cancer. The Mayo Clinic’s Comprehensive Cancer Center is designated by the National Cancer Institute as a comprehensive cancer center. This is why more than 120,000 people with cancer come to Mayo Clinic each year.

Mayo is in the process of expanding its ability to care through the development of an additional 5 stories to its existing 8-story tower.
