Bayfront Health Hospital Port Charlotte
Founded in 1962, growth and community involvement continue to be prominent themes at Bayfront Health Port Charlotte with over 40 years of service in Charlotte County. Founded by a group of local physicians who were passionate about serving the city's expanding population, Bayfront Health Port Charlotte's original 50-bed hospital opened on June 4, 1962. There were three full-time physicians and one part-time physician associated with Bayfront Health Port Charlotte at this time.
Since then, this small, one-story community hospital has grown into a 254-bed Joint Commission Accredited full service hospital that is appropriately known as: Your Hospital for Life. Bayfront Health Port Charlotte is committed to caring for people throughout their cycle of life, including welcoming newborns, preventing illness, providing acute care, managing declining health, and ensuring compassionate care for the dying. Recognized locally as a leading health care provider, Bayfront Health Port Charlotte is large enough to offer the full-continuum of care that you and your family need, but small enough to provide the personal attention that you and your family deserve.
Bayfront Health Port Charlotte is a 254-bed Joint Commission Accredited full service hospital that serves residents in Charlotte, Sarasota, and Desoto counties.
