BayCare is the largest health care system in the Tampa Bay and West Central Florida regions, operating 15 hospitals and hundreds of other facilities. We exist to serve the community’s need for high-quality care, which is why many of our hospitals are in the midst of expansions and why we provide a wide array of care options, including urgent care centers, surgery centers, behavioral health facilities, physician offices, kiosks in Publix supermarkets and an innovation in care delivery, BayCare HealthHubs™.
When people can’t come to us, we go to them, with services such as a mobile medical clinic for children in underserved areas and Lab2Door to provide lab services to patients at home.
High-Quality Care for Every Individual
We serve hundreds of thousands of patients every year, but we know that our size and scope matter little to those who need our help. Their need, whatever it may be, is deeply personal to them and each one wants to be treated as an individual, not a number.
That’s why BayCare’s No. 1 goal is delivering clinical excellence to every patient, every time, in every setting where they interact with our providers. We want it to be the right care, in the right place, at the right time, provided in a way that’s dignified, respectful and mindful of patients’ need for convenience, value and, most of all, positive outcomes.
BayCare made great strides on its clinical excellence goal in 2019, earning high rankings from groups that use proven metrics to measure clinical quality and patient experience. IBM Watson Health ranked BayCare in the top 20 percent of large U.S. health systems and put three BayCare hospitals—Mease Countryside, Morton Plant and St. Joseph’s—on its list of 100 Top Hospitals. St. Joseph’s Hospitals earned the top-rated five-star quality rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. BayCare HomeCare earned 4.8 stars, outperforming competitors.
