Wolfson Children's Hospital is a part of Baptist Health, the region's most comprehensive healthcare provider. Baptist Health's circle of care includes five nationally accredited hospitals and numerous primary care and specialty offices, as well as home health, rehabilitation and urgent care.

The 199-bed hospital is Jacksonville's only Children's Emergency Center, with physicians specially trained in emergency medicine, dedicated to children aged 18 and under. The Children's Emergency Center saw over 58,000 children in 2012.

In addition to providing the best pediatric care, as evidenced by Wolfson's selection as on of only two children's hospitals in Florida to receive Magnet™ status in 2007 and again in 2012, Wolfson Children's Hospital is a growing center of research and a leading teaching hospital dedicated to training tomorrow's pediatric doctors, nurses and technical staff.

Serving as the main teaching facility for the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville Pediatric Residency Training Program, Wolfson's is also affiliated with premier nursing programs, including those at the University of North Florida, Jacksonville University, Florida State College Jacksonville, St. Johns River Community College, the University of Florida, Florida State University and the University of Central Florida.

Wolfson Children's has continually expanded in both size and services to meet the evolving needs of the region. In 2012, we opened the new J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Tower with an expansion of Wolfson Children's services, including a new neurosurgical suite, iMRI and iCT technology, a Cardiovascular Operating Room and Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit, a Day Hospital, a Progressive Care Unit and the new Larry J. Freeman Behavioral Health Center.
