South Florida Baptist Hospital

Plant City, FL

Since 1953, South Florida Baptist Hospital has been your trusted community hospital for all your health and wellness needs, and was built on quality, compassionate care. A full-service, 147-bed hospital, we offer the high-tech services of an acute care hospital, but in a small, warm and friendly environment designed for personal attention and compassionate care. You’ll find a highly skilled and experienced team that works to make patients and visitors as comfortable as possible during their hospital experience. The commitment of the Plant City community to support South Florida Baptist Hospital has been one of outstanding generosity that began with its founding. The development of the hospital in the 1940s is the story of a noteworthy partnership between many generous, civic-minded citizens of Plant City and the dedicated financial support of the Florida Baptist Church Convention. The entire Plant City community rallied behind the idea of building the city's first hospital in the post-World War II years.
