Born in 1962. Reborn in 2021.

Fishermen's Community Hospital was founded by dedicated community members who understood the need for a hospital as a cornerstone of any thriving community. Baptist Health also recognizes that need. When the hospital was severely damaged by Hurricane Irma one month after the health system acquired it in 2017, Baptist Health established a mobile field hospital and then a custom-designed modular hospital to ensure no interruption of care to the Middle Keys community.

In January 2018, the Baptist Health South Florida Board of Trustees approved funding to build an entirely new replacement hospital to meet the needs of the community well into the future.

The new Fishermen’s Community Hospital is designed to withstand wind speeds of a Category 5 hurricane. It offers 24/7 emergency care with telestroke services to give stroke patients immediate access to Board-certified neurologists; an on-site helipad; eight inpatient beds, including two intensive care beds with 24/7 monitoring; nine emergency department beds; five additional recovery beds; surgical services*, including endoscopy*; diagnostic imaging; rehabilitation; oncology care*; and laboratory services.

The hospital’s dedicated staff will continue to provide the high-quality, compassionate care they have delivered for the last six decades.

These are some of the services that we're proud to offer
to our community at the new
Fishermen's Community Hospital.
