Community Health Services
UF Health Jacksonville is committed to decreasing disparities in healthcare
delivery across ethnic and economic lines. Our programs reflect the city's major
causes of morbidity and mortality in both purpose and location. We are especially
vested in improving the health of residents living in the community surrounding
the hospital, the most populated area of Jacksonville's urban core.
The urban core has the city's highest mortality rate from heart disease, diabetes
