Several UF Health practices have been nationally recognized for enhancing patient-provider partnerships. Every patient seen by a UF Health primary care physician also receives care from a team of experts who are all working to keep them well. From the medical assistant who takes their vital signs to the registered nurse who assists with medications and treatment, each uses evidence-based, patient-focused processes that enhances the patient experience and targets improved outcomes.

UF Health North sees continued success with strong year-opening figures. Three years ago, UF Health North changed the landscape of Jacksonville when the $140 million medical office building opened to the public Feb. 17, 2015. Last May, the campus nearly doubled in size and services with the $85 million bed tower expansion, and the year-end totals for 2017 show that the progress of North Jacksonville’s only full-service hospital continues.

UF Health offers gentle cesarean sections to benefit mother and baby. When a mother imagines her child’s birth, she envisions laboring, pushing, sweating and finally having her newborn placed on her chest. Cesarean sections are rarely part of that dream, and leave many mothers feeling like they missed out on a true birth experience.

Imagine recovering from back surgery and experiencing pain with every step. Now imagine wearing a pair of therapy shorts attached to a highly advanced treadmill. The shorts and a zip-up plastic chamber around you fill with pressurized air. Your body weight is adjusted to within 20 percent of your mass, and off you go. With the device, you are able to walk as you normally would, strengthening your muscles and reinforcing your regular gait. Not only can you move effortlessly, but now recovery is off to a great start.

As three of UF Health Jacksonville’s leaders retire, we reflect on their contributions to the organization. UF Health Jacksonville’s exemplary patient care, employee engagement and community service are the result, in large part, of its leaders. At the end of 2017, three of our senior leaders — Russ Armistead, CEO; Penny Thompson, vice president of Government Affairs; and Bill Ryan, senior vice president and chief financial officer — will say goodbye to UF Health and enter retirement. Each has dedicated years of their careers to stewarding our organization toward greatness, and they have made contributions that will positively impact patients and staff for years to come.
