UF Health represents the shared vision and commitment to patient care excellence by more than 22,000 employees of the University of Florida, UF Health Shands and UF Health Jacksonville faculty and staff.
As you navigate the information in this section, we hope one thing is clear: Our patients are at the center of everything we do. It’s the reason we come to work every day. And it is a tremendous honor and a privilege to serve in this way.
As part of the University of Florida, we have an exceptional set of resources in health care services and the sciences, and an extraordinarily talented faculty and staff committed to the goal of making UF Health truly great across our missions of patient care, teaching, research and community service. We are unique nationally in the breadth of health-related colleges, centers and institutes present on our Gainesville campus, coupled with the strength of the UF Health Shands hospital system. Moreover, UF Health Jacksonville offers an array of teaching and patient care opportunities, and a future that holds untapped potential to excel in clinical and translational research. In fact, our reach extends throughout the state — we serve patients from every county in Florida, and from throughout the Southeast and beyond.
At UF Health, we seek to extend to you a helping hand, for whatever reason you turn to us. We look forward to serving you.
