Florida’s nineteenth-century was overshadowed by the annual threat of Yellow Fever. Studies of this disease led to quarantines, the discovery of air-conditioning, and similar health care innovations. In the twentieth-century, health care has been predominantly a question of how to reach rural communities and meet the growing demand in the areas of aged health care.

The medical care received by Floridians throughout the years has had a strong impact on the life and well-being of Florida's population. The Florida Heritage Collection contains works about medical facilities and resources, as well as how medical services and programs have effected the health of the population of Florida. The advances and contributions made in medical care have promoted wellness and the betterment of health in Florida.
