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 Holmes Regional Medical Center (HRMC), the hospital is Brevard’s largest, with 514 beds. Cape Canaveral Hospital (CCH) opened in 1962 with 44 beds, and has since grown to 150 beds. Palm Bay Hospital (PBH) opened in 1992 as a satellite of HRMC with 60 beds. Viera Hospital opened in 2011 with 84 all private, in-patient rooms.
Health First was formed when CCH, HRMC, and PBH joined together in August 1995 to create a truly integrated not-for-profit healthcare delivery system and fulfill a common mission of improving the health of our community. The first new services added in the Health First family 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- Central Florida's only electronic Intensive Care Unit, Viera Hospital, and many other services to our family.
