Welcome To Specialty Hospital…and your online source for medical information. Take a look around our site. The links on the left provide everything you need to make your visit with us as easy as possible.

We are a fully licensed and accredited, long-term acute care hospital, the only one of its kind in Jacksonville Florida and one of approximately 300 in the nation. Our patients are in need of extended hospital stays and have complex medical conditions. Our focus is on a patient's total recovery, and it is one of the factors that set us apart.

Patients at Specialty Hospital often have multiple system failure and are debilitated by conditions such as pulmonary complications, respiratory failure, infectious diseases, severe wounds, and brain or spinal cord injuries. Unlike short-term acute care hospitals, our goal is to achieve fully integrated healing. To this end, Specialty Hospital's resources are complemented by affiliations with community physicians from nearly every medical discipline. We have nearly 250 physicians on staff at our 107 bed facility.

Visiting Hours are 11:00am - 8:00pm Daily.

Specialty Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations (JCAHO).
