University of Florida (Jacksonville)

History

The hospital’s origins date to 1870 as Florida’s first non-military hospital. In 1901, Brewster Nursing School, which later became Methodist Medical Center (MMC), opened to care for victims of the great fire of Jacksonville. In 1971, University Hospital, a city-owned 485-bed medical facility, opened across the street from MMC. In 1999, UMC and MMC combined to become Shands Jacksonville, affiliated with the University of Florida.
