Flagler Hospital has continued to see tremendous growth, not only in its number of beds (currently 335) or locations, (the hospital operates 3 satellite clinics) but in areas of technology used in every aspect of the hospital. In 2005, Flagler jumped ahead of the majority of U.S. hospitals when it replaced patient charts with Internet-ready laptops. Electronic Medical Records facilitate increased efficiency, improved documentation, quality of care, security and reduced documentation expenses. Today, Flagler is moving even further toward a completely paperless environment with an ultimate goal of developing a completely electronic community healthcare exchange.
Flagler is committed to providing the best patient experience with the best staff. As part of this, Flagler offers the highest degree of technology to improve care and provide the best treatment. These include fully-digital operating rooms, digital mammography machines, advanced robotic pharmacy technology, a state-of-the art neonatal intensive care unit and – in partnership with Florida Radiation Oncology Group – one of the world’s most advanced Adaptive Radiation Therapy delivery systems available for the treatment of cancer.
With nearly 125 years of history in St. Johns County, Flagler Hospital is proud to be the community’s health care partner – and pleased to provide world-class care, right here, close to home.
