With a population of 805,605 people as of 2007, Jacksonville is the largest city in the state of Florida and the 12th largest in the nation (of any major U.S. city with a population of at least 100,000 people). Jacksonville is located in the First Coast region of northeast Florida, and is positioned about 340 miles north of Miami. Jacksonville, Florida is a popular destination spot for its beautiful beaches and gorgeous weather. For these very reasons, many people come to call Jacksonville their new home each year, moving into the city limits and establishing roots near the Floridian coast. With such a great volume of people permanently settling in Florida, it is important that Florida’s healthcare system is always operating at optimum levels to ensure that the injured and infirm are well taken care of.
Within Jacksonville, there are a total of 26 hospitals, and within the county limits there are 3,661 doctors. In a highly competitive healthcare system, there are numerous individual practitioners in the city of Jacksonville. With such competition often comes reduced quality of treatment and the unfortunate reality of medical malpractice in Jacksonville, which can be the failure to diagnose, birth injuries, hospital negligence, and surgical injuries. Factor in pharmaceutical companies that are driven by profits, often times speeding through clinical trials of medications in order to get the drugs prescribed to patients quicker, and you have a recipe for potential disaster relating to personal health care.
