A long history of caring for people…
Founded in 1920, BayView Healthcare, also known to many as the St. Johns Welfare Federation, has maintained a long tradition and commitment of providing the highest quality health care services and charitable assistance to the citizens of St. Johns County and surrounding communities. The organization has expanded many of its programs over the years to meet the needs of this community while maintaining its heritage as a private not-for-profit healthcare provider.
BayView provides a multi-level continuum of care, including short-term inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing, home health, assisted living, education on healthcare services, wellness and prevention for aging individuals that facilitate reaching and maintaining the highest levels of functionality, independence and cost-efficiency and charitable assistance.
Our mission is “to take care of the sick, the needy and the indigent citizens of St. Augustine and St. Johns County”. Our annual charitable and community benefits amount to more than $4,000,000 a year. These benefits primarily represent charitable and uncompensated healthcare services and cost-savings through programs at the skilled nursing home, the two assisted living facilities and emergency assistance.
