West Kendall Baptist Hospital

The newest member of the Baptist Health organization, West Kendall Baptist Hospital, opened April of 2011 for patient care and is the first completely new, non-replacement hospital built in Miami-Dade County in more than 35 years. The hospital was designed to be able to grow with the needs of the community, withstand a Category 5 storm, while also meeting Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards consistent with Baptist Health's organization-wide green initiatives program.

 

In March of 2015, West Kendall Baptist Hospital achieved Magnet® recognition as a reflection of its nursing professionalism, teamwork and superior patient care. Magnet recognition is determined by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program®, which ensures that rigorous standards for nursing excellence are met. With this credential, West Kendall Baptist Hospital joins a select group of 402 entities that have achieved this honor out of nearly 6,000 U.S. healthcare organizations.

 

Located on a 30-acre property in the Kendall Town Center, at SW 162nd Avenue and 96th Street, the four-story, 282,000-square-foot facility accommodates 133 licensed acute care inpatient beds and private patient rooms, and receives more than 40,000 emergency room visits annually.

 

Besides our world-class maternity services, the hospital offers surgical services in four operating rooms, diagnostic and imaging, and endoscopic suites. There is also a 62,000-square-foot building adjacent to the hospital for doctors' offices.
