Wolfson Children's Hospital, a part of Baptist Health in Jacksonville, is the regional pediatric referral hospital serving children throughout Northeast Florida, Southeast Georgia and beyond. Because children have special health care needs, everything about our hospital is designed just for them and theirloved ones.
One of only two children's hospitals in Florida to receive Magnet™ status, Wolfson is nationally recognized for excellence in patient care. Our outstanding nurses and staff, who helped Wolfson and Baptist Health to be named one of the "100 Best Places to Work" by Modern Healthcaremagazine, work collaboratively with pediatric physicians from Nemours Children's Clinic, the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville, Brooks Rehabilitation, Mayo Clinic and the Northeast Florida Pediatric Society. These partnerships provide our patients with access to physicians in every specialty and subspecialty of children's medicine. They also have resulted in the creation of programs with services more comprehensive than those available at any single institution, such as the joint adult/pediatric bone marrow transplant program developed by Baptist Health, Wolfson, Nemours and Mayo.
Wolfson Children's Hospital is proud to play an important role in training America’s next generation of pediatric professionals, serving as the main teaching facility for the University of Florida/Jacksonville Pediatric Residency Training Program. Wolfson is also affiliated with a number of premier nursing programs, including those at the University of North Florida, Jacksonville University, Florida Community College at Jacksonville, St. Johns River Community College, University of Florida, Florida State University, University of Central Florida and Keiser University.
