Mission Statement

The Orange Park Medical Center Emergency Medicine Residency Program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.

Program Overview

The Orange Park Medical Center Emergency Medicine Program is a three-year community program designed to provide residents with real-world clinical training. Located on the banks of the St. Johns River just outside of Jacksonville, Florida, our emergency departments serve a diverse and high-acuity patient population.

The primary goal of our Program is to train and develop exceptional emergency physicians to provide outstanding medical care in an efficient and compassionate manner to prepare them for lifelong careers in emergency medicine.

Our Program is one of the newest, fastest growing, and most realistic places to train due to its community location and $100 million + in expansions. We are a 365 bed, STEMI/Stroke/Level 2 Trauma Center with a catchment area spanning 6 counties.

Our Emergency Medicine faculty provide high-quality patient care with years of experience in emergency medicine. Each is dedicated to educating and mentoring residents through clinical, didactic, and research experiences. They are also heavily involved in different levels of leadership throughout the hospital.

Unique features of our residency program:

  • Orange Park Medical Center is a unique community hospital with multiple research grants
  • High patient volume with a catchment area spanning 6 counties in Northeast Florida.
  • Extensive exposure and integration of administrative meetings and tasks which allows residents early experience and exposure with hospital leadership.
