BayCare exists to serve our community’s health, a mission that focused our efforts through a second year of a global pandemic. But that mission also shaped our efforts in 2021 to ensure that West Central Florida will continue to have a strong not-for-profit health care system for years to come – from transforming health care to be more accessible, efficient and effective; to providing more behavioral health services; to constructing new facilities; to leading efforts around food insecurity and nutrition. Read on to learn more about how we cared for the community in 2021 and about our plans for the future.
From Our President/CEO and Board Chairman
“2021, just like the year before, brought unprecedented challenges for the health care industry, including BayCare, and our community… In this report, you can learn a lot about what our year was like, but also about what the future holds.”
