What Are Some Benefits of BayCare?

BayCare, a not-for-profit health care system, provides health services to patients, such as surgery, cancer prevention and treatments, pain management and women's care. The organization serves 13 hospitals and over 200 facilities in the Tampa Bay, Florida area, as of 2015.

The organization features a variety of classes and events covering a wide range of health-related subjects, such as childbirth preparation, tours of the birthing center, car seat inspections, memory screenings and weight loss surgery. BayCare provides these classes for free or a small charge; however, they all require prior registration.

Patients using the doctor search option have the ability to refine their search by city, ZIP code, county, speciality and gender. Patients also have the option of searching for doctors by language and affiliations.

BayCare provides additional services through its website, Baycare.org, including a health library with materials such as quizzes, E-newsletters, a health encyclopedia, podcasts and video library. Patients also have the opportunity to register for classes and events through the website.

St. Joseph's Children's Hospital, South Florida Baptist Hospital, Morton Plant North Bay Hospital, BayCare Alliant Hospital and Mease Dunedin Hospital are among the hospitals affiliated with BayCare. The organization also features affiliations with foundations such as South Florida Baptist Hospital Foundation and St. Joseph’s Hospitals Foundation.
