North Florida Regional Healthcare is a strong healthcare system that is centered around Gainesville’s community hospital – North Florida Regional Medical Center. What began 40 years ago as a single hospital has grown into a healthcare system with an annual economic impact of more than 200 million dollars. That would never have happened without very special people who believe in where they work and in what they do.

On this page, you can read stories of employees, physicians and volunteers who are shining examples of what it means to help and to heal. We admire them and are grateful for them. They remind us of why we are here and how special North Florida Regional really is. They inspire all of us to do what we can each day to make our campus and our world a better place.

If you know someone at North Florida Regional Healthcare who inspires you, we’d love to tell their story. Call us at 333-4970 or send an email to
