Since its inception in 1953, Memorial Healthcare System has been a leader in providing high-quality health care services to South Florida residents. Today, it is the third-largest public health care system in the nation and highly regarded for its exceptional patient- and family-centered care. Memorial's patient, physician and employee satisfaction rates are some of the most admired in the country, and the system is recognized as a national leader in quality health care.

Memorial Regional Hospital is the flagship facility of the health care system and is one of the largest hospitals in Florida.
