BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – For more than two decades, our mission has remained the same, to care for you now and into the future. We are committed to becoming an Integrated Delivery Network (IDN), not just in name, but in function and experience.
In a true IDN, hospitals, health insurance and providers work together to treat the whole person and focus on wellness—instead of just treating disease.
We are honored to be Brevard County’s hometown not-for-profit health system. The coordinator of our health system is Health First Health Plans. With more than 150,000 members, we offer multiple commercial and Medicare health insurance plans.
Because we care, Health First is committed to continue providing support to our community in many tangible ways. In total for 2015, counting all contributions we made to other organizations and our direct charity and uncompensated care, Health First provided more than $129 million of community support to Brevard.
Our fully Integrated Delivery Network has more than 8,000 caring associates, more than 1,200 credentialed clinicians and 1,600 volunteers who care and are dedicated to your health and wellness.
With more than 350 providers, Health First Medical Group is focused on keeping you well and treating you when you are sick. We also offer four hospital locations with 900 licensed beds throughout the county, and a fully functioning Level II Trauma Center. Health First also offers numerous outpatient and wellness services.
At Health First, we work hard to provide services and resources to keep you healthy.
