The communities in our area are serviced by two hospitals, Sebastian River Medical Center and Indian River Medical Center, located in Vero Beach and a Community healthcare coalition.
Sebastian River Medical Center has been serving Indian River and Brevard Counties since 1974. It is a modern, 154 bed hospital that provides personalized, quality health care. The hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. The hospital team consists of over 130 physicians, a nursing and ancillary staff of 500 and a volunteer staff of 200. SRMC’s emergency room is proud of its ability to see patients within minutes of arrival by an ER staff member and/or a physician. SRMC has been one of the Joint Commissions top performers on key quality measures for heart attack, heart failure and pneumonia. It has consistently been awarded through Health Grades as one of American’s Best 100 Hospitals and has received Excellence Awards for critical care, gastrointestinal care, general surgery and stroke. It is also a State of Florida Level 1 interventional cardiac catheterization lab. In 2016 SRMC broke ground on a $64 million dollar expansion which includes a new three story tower with 10 new operating rooms and 48 new patient rooms. When completed in 2017 SRMC will have 200 licensed beds and a full renovation to its existing facilities.

Treasure Coast Community Health has provided primary health care in Indian River County for over 20 years. Originally founded in 1993 as the Fellmere Community Health Coalition and serving the small rural citrus and ranching population of the area this non- profit organization was approved as a Federally Qualified Health Center in 1995. Following the 2005 and 2005 hurricanes that devastated the Treasure Coast region of eastern Florida, TCCH’s Governing Board of Director took the bold step of a planned expansion to improve access to care throughout the county, with a corresponding name change to Treasure Coast Community Health. TCCH provides comprehensive primary and preventative care to approximately 16,000 individuals annually between its four IRC locations. TCCH used a primary care delivery model to provide integrated and comprehensive medical, dental and mental health/substance abuse services to all people, whether insured, uninsured, or under insure, offering a sliding fee scale discount program based on income and family size. Additional services like prescription assistance, translation services, social service referrals for food and housing, Medicaid eligibility/enrollment and assistance understanding the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace are offered by Health Navigators.
