Welcome to Fishermen’s Community Hospital. We’re proud to be the newest member of the Baptist Health South Florida family. Our 25-bed critical access hospital, located in Marathon, Florida, opened in 1959. Since then, we’ve provided emergency services and other care to residents and visitors in the Florida Keys, with an emphasis on quality and compassion.

Our emergency room is open 24/7 and is staffed by Board-certified physicians and specially trained nurses. Among our other services are inpatient and outpatient surgery, diagnostic imaging, lab testing, inpatient and outpatient physical and occupational therapy, and we have a team of multi-specialty employed physicians whose practices are conveniently located in Marathon and Big Pine Key.

We also offer Swing Bed Services, which provide extended care for patients unable to care for themselves while recovering from illness or injury. 

In addition to our knowledgeable and caring physicians and staff, you’ll find friendly volunteers throughout the hospital.

Fishermen’s Community Hospital is dedicated to providing excellent care, and we would be honored to take care of you.


Depending on your medical condition and that of other patients at the center, the estimated wait time can change since patients are seen based on the severity of their condition, and the more critical patients are seen first. This estimate is provided for information purposes only and cannot be guaranteed.

During your visit at our facility, you may receive services from our facility as well as from other health care providers. You may receive a separate bill from these other health care providers, and they may or may not participate in the same health insurance plans as the facility. You should contact the health care providers who may render services to you for a list of the insurance plans with which they participate. You may also request from the facility and other health care providers a personalized estimate of charges.

If you have any questions regarding a separate statement/invoice you received from a health care provider, please contact the specific health care provider’s or group’s billing offices.

If however, you have any questions or concerns directly pertaining to your Baptist Health facility bill, please contact our Patient Financial Services Department at (786) 594-6000.
