Our History

North Brevard County Hospital District, dba Parrish Medical Center (PMC), was founded in 1958 by the State of Florida, as a single-story, 28-bed hospital set within an orange grove on the banks of the Indian River. In 1963, PMC expanded health services and grew to 210-beds and a full complement of ancillary health services.

In 2002, PMC transformed healthcare delivery within the community and worldwide with the opening of its 371,000-square-foot, five-story replacement hospital. The replacement hospital was among the first of its kind to be wholly designed and constructed using evidence-based healing design earning PMC national recognition as One of America’s Finest Healing Environments®.

In 2014, PMC was the first Central Florida member of the network and the third in Florida. The Mayo Clinic Care Network extends Mayo Clinic’s knowledge to physicians and providers interested in working together in the best interest of their patients. Using digital technology, our network of providers collaborate with Mayo Clinic specialists on patient care, community health and innovative health care delivery.

In 2016, PMC became the nation’s first healthcare system to earn The Joint Commission’s coveted Integrated Care Certification. Upon earning this national distinction, Parrish Healthcare, a regional network of collaborative health service providers was introduced.
