Flagler Hospital 120th Anniversary

Flagler Hospital History

This year, Flagler Hospital celebrates 120 years of caring for the members of our community. We are pleased that the St. Augustine Record has given us this opportunity to share some special moments in our history and invite you to follow along in our journey to excellence that started back in 1889. From our earliest beginnings, the residents of St. Johns County have played a key role in determining our direction and supporting our mission to provide the best patient experience with the best staff. We are proud of our partnership with you - and of the accomplishments we have achieved together.

Our efforts have been recognized nationally, including some remarkable recent accomplishments such as being named one of US News & World Report's Best Hospitals, earning designation by the Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Care Center, and ranking among the nation's top 5% in almost every clinical area, including cardiology, orthopedics, general surgery, neurosurgery and numerous others. Most recently, we were the only hospital in the Jacksonville region to earn 5 stars from HealthGrades for our maternity care program.

In a time where health care has become such a significant political battleground, it is important to recognize the partnership and the success that St. Johns County and Flagler Hospital have experienced in our own community. Again, I thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your loved ones. We look forward to continuing that tradition for yet another 120 years of caring."
