At Orange Park Medical Center, we are committed to quality care and a heightened focus on extraordinary service. Founded in 1974, Orange Park Medical Center has grown from a small community hospital to a top healthcare provider in northeast Florida.

We are a full-service, acute-care hospital with 317 inpatient beds located in the heart of Orange Park, FL, providing medical care to Clay County and surrounding communities. The hospital has 170 private rooms. There are nine labor, delivery and recovery room suites for new mothers and a seven-bed, Level-2 neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for premature babies and those born with special needs. There is also a 24-bed psychiatric unit, 20-bed inpatient rehabilitation unit and 20 intensive care unit (ICU) beds.

As the only Level ll Trauma Center in Clay County, Orange Park Medical Center's Emergency Department (ER) has the proven expertise to save lives within the golden hour. Being a Level ll Trauma Center means we provide a higher level of care for the most critically injured patients. It also means our standards and performance are regularly reviewed by the Florida Department of Health. Treating approximately 80,000 patients each year we consider it a privilege as well as a responsibility to make sure that we provide exemplary service to every patient who entrusts us with their care.

Our Emergency Department (ER) provides 52 treatment bays designed to meet the needs of any emergency. To better serve our patients, we have expanded and renovated our ER. The department has nearly doubled in size, adding 13,000 square feet of new space. Four of the new ER rooms are able to quickly convert to accommodate the needs of psychiatric patients. We've also recently opened a brand-new Pediatric ER to meet the needs of our smallest residents. This includes ten Pediatric ER treatment rooms with a child friendly waiting room and on-site pediatrician.

We invite new graduates to apply for our StarRN New Graduate Program!
