North Brevard County Hospital District, dba Parrish Medical Center (PMC), was founded nearly 60 years ago by the State of Florida. In 1958, PMC opened 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 comm...unity 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®.
PMC has since served as a leader in providing therapeutic healing environments as part of our person and family-centered model of care, including adopting the healing design concept within each of our outpatient Parrish Healthcare Centers. This design concept is now recommended by CMS as the preferred design approach for all hospitals.
Parrish Medical Center is proud to serve as an independent, not-for-profit, public community hospital—and doing so at levels that place us among the nation’s very best by any measure. And, despite the medical center’s special taxing district status, Parrish is doing so with zero tax dollars assessed for more than 22 years.
