Orlando Health is recognized worldwide for its pediatric and adult Level One Trauma program as well as for having the only state-accredited Level Two Adult Trauma Center in Pinellas County. It is home to the nation’s largest NICU under one roof, the only system in the Southeast to offer open fetal surgery to repair the most severe forms of spina bifida and home to an Olympic athlete training facility.

CIVIC EFFORT In 2020, we acquired Bayfront Health St. Petersburg, which has a long history and tradition of serving Pinellas County. Since then, we’ve made changes to enhance patient care, benefit team members and rebuild the hospital’s relationship with the community.
