Community Commitment

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 WWII years.

Today, South Florida Baptist Hospital is a full-service 147-bed community hospital that offers all of the high-tech services of an acute care hospital, but in a small, warm and friendly environment designed for personal attention and compassionate care. In 2003, South Florida Baptist Hospital reached its 50-year milestone.

The hospital offers complete:

  • Diagnostic
  • Surgery
  • Rehabilitation
  • Adult acute and intensive care units
  • Radiology
  • Pediatric and adolescent services
  • Obstetrics
