"Flagler Hospital (St. Augustine, Fla.). Flagler Hospital would be nothing without women. Henry Flagler, the hospital's namesake, brought together the most influential women in St. Augustine in 1888 to plan a hospital for the community. The women accepted the challenge and consequently helped formulate Flagler Hospital, which opened in 1890. The hospital is now seen as a beacon for women's health in the area, receiving HealthGrades' Women's Health Excellence Award every year since 2010. Flagler Hospital has a maternity services center of excellence, which provides childbirth preparation classes and private postpartum suites, and it also provides digital mammography and a breast cancer patient navigator program."
