About Health First
The roots of Health First run deep in Brevard, dating back to 1937, when Brevard Hospital first opened in Melbourne with 27 beds. Now known as Health First's Holmes Regional Medical Center, the hospital is Brevard's largest, with 514 beds. Health First's Cape Canaveral Hospital opened in 1962 with 44 beds and has since grown to 150 beds. Health First's Palm Bay Hospital opened in 1992 with 60 beds, serving as a satellite of Holmes Regional Medical Center. Viera Hospital opened in 2011, with 84 all private, inpatient rooms.
Health First was formed in August 1995 when Holmes Regional Medical Center, Cape Canaveral Hospital and Palm Bay Hospital joined together in August 1995 to create a truly integrated not-for-profit healthcare delivery system, fulfilling a common mission of improving the health of our community. The first new services added to the Health First network were Health First Medical Group, opening in late 1995, and Health First Health Plans, opening in January 1996. Since then, we've also added: Holmes Regional Trauma Center; VitalWatch, serving as Central Florida's only electronic Intensive Care Unit; Viera Hospital; and many other services.
