Community Wellness


Years ago, the purpose of a hospital was to treat people when they were ill and injured...period. But just as the field of medicine has evolved in remarkable ways, so has the concept of health care. Today, helping people stay well is a major part of what health care is all about at Baptist Health South Florida, which sponsors a wide variety of free health fairs, seminars and wellness programs for the community.

Support groups

Arthritis, Breastfeeding, Caregivers, Infertility, Loss, Sleep Disorders. These are a few of the more than 60 informal support groups held at Baptist Health hospitals. Check out the Events & Education section of the website.
