All of these features are complemented by Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), giving new parents peace of mind knowing additional services are available right here at a moment’s notice should the need arise.

Seamless System

The Health First family first began in 1995, when three not-for-profit hospitals—Cape Canaveral Hospital in Cocoa Beach, Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne, and Palm Bay Hospital in Palm Bay—united to form a seamless system devoted to integrating quality healthcare services with state-of-the-art technology for the betterment of our community.

Two new divisions, Health First Health Plans and Health First Physicians, were created in 1996 to complete the spectrum of healthcare services for Florida’s Space Coast.

Since then, the Health First family has grown to include outpatient centers; the county’s only trauma center; home care; specialized programs for cancer, heart, stroke, and aging; and also rehabilitative services. The newest campus, Viera Health Park is home to Health First’s fourth Pro-Health & Fitness Center and Viera Hospital opened lat April.
