About West Kendall Baptist Hospital

9555 SW 162 Avenue
Miami, Florida 33196


West Kendall Ba​ptist Hospital opened to the public in April 2011 as Miami-Dade County’s first brand-new hospital in more than 35 years. It is part of Baptist Health South Florida, the largest faith-based, not-for-profit healthcare organization in the region.

Situated on a 30-acre property adjacent to the proposed Kendall Town Center development, the hospital supports a vision of West Kendall as a convenient central hub where area residents can live, work and play. Through its “Healthy West Kendall” initiative, the hospital encourages residents to achieve the goal of becoming the “Healthiest Community in Florida.” The hospital campus’ award-winning design anticipates rapid growth in the area, with plans already in place for a second patient-bed tower, expanded clinical facilities and two new parking structures.

West Kendall Baptist Hospital provides inpatient care for adult medical and surgical services, including a separate critical care unit. The Emergency Department, serving both adults and children, can accommodate more than 70,000 visits annually. Surgical services are provided in four operating rooms, with room for future expansion. Endoscopy suites and diagnostic and imaging facilities are also available. The “Beautiful Beginnings” program for expectant mothers includes all-private labor and delivery suites and dedicated C-section operating rooms within the labor and delivery unit.

The Family Medicine Center, located in the medical office building adjacent to the hospital, serves as the primary training ground for an accredited Family Medicine residency program developed in partnership with Florida International University’s Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine.
