With our team members, patients and community top of mind, Flagler Health+ has reached a Definitive Agreement with UF Health designed to bring innovative, high-quality, leading-edge care to the region.

The move follows the recent decision by Flagler Health+ to explore joining a like-minded health system to continue providing high-quality care to our community, enhancing local health care services and expanding access to care. The Flagler Health+ Board of Trustees selected UF Health because the nationally renowned health system offers the strengths of a top 5 public research institution coupled with innovative, high-quality, leading-edge care that will benefit the residents of Flagler, St. Johns, Putnam, Clay and Duval counties.

Our Mission

To provide the best patient experience with the best staff

For more than 130 years, Flagler Health+ has provided high-quality care through countless changes, challenges and innovations. As the health care industry evolves and our community continues to grow, we are taking an important step to securing a bright future for Flagler Health+ and advancing to meet our community’s needs.

Flagler Health+ has a strong community legacy, and we believe that UF Health has a shared commitment to:

Patient-Centric Care

Everything we do is designed to meet the health care needs of the communities we serve, including providing personalized, compassionate care and expanding the range of local services as we move forward.

A Community-First Approach

Continuing a collaborative relationship with our community and recognizing our role as a trusted local health care leader are both vital to ensuring patients have access to essential and convenient care close to home.

Team Member Support

Our team members are the heart of our organization. Providing an environment in which team members can thrive with opportunities for development, competitive compensation and benefits and long-term growth is important.

Building Relationships with Physicians

A vibrant physician enterprise which includes employed and independent, community physicians supported by a strong clinical and economic alignment is a priority for Flagler Health+. Through these relationships, we stay in touch with the needs of our community and strengthen our network of local medical professionals.

Welcoming Environment

We are proud of the culture we have built and our team’s vital role in providing the best patient experience through a comforting environment, personalized care and compassion during every visit.

Next Steps

Signing the Definitive Agreement is another important milestone in this process and brings Flagler Health+ one step closer to officially joining UF Health. The next step will be providing the standard regulatory notifications and engaging in associated reviews, which we anticipate will be completed by the end of September 2023. In the meantime, our priority continues to be providing exceptional care for our patients and community. This process will not impact our current daily operations, and patients can continue to see their doctor and experience the same great services they always have.
