  • We don’t settle.


Hospital care in Santa Rosa County began in 1951, when a group of local businessmen and citizens formed a County Hospital Board and applied for a certificate of organization. These initial events set the stage for what would eventually become Santa Rosa Medical Center. Construction for the original facility began in mid-1951, and on December 2, 1952, the first patients were admitted. The initial hospital, located on Stewart Street in Milton and known as Santa Rosa Hospital, was chartered as a non-profit hospital and was managed by county officials.

Milton and the surrounding communities experienced tremendous growth throughout the '50s and '60s, and Santa Rosa Hospital was expanded in 1963 and again in 1966 to better serve the area's growing needs. By 1970, the population was again straining the capabilities of the now 100-bed facility.
