New Baptist Hospital Surgery Waiting Area will be Named in Honor of the Rockhill Family

The Rockhill Family

James “Rock” and Jessica Rockhill have chosen Baptist Health Care Foundation for their latest impactful gift to benefit the new Baptist Hospital campus, opening in September 2023. The Foundation will name the surgery waiting area in honor of their transformational gift.


A monumental staircase will lead from the hospital’s main lobby to the second-floor surgery waiting area. With more than 3,000 square feet of waiting space, natural light, and views of the town square, the dedicated space will be the waiting area for all inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures. 

 “What I love about Baptist is that it is a community hospital; leadership is right here in Pensacola, and the decisions they make are based on what’s best for our community.” Jessica Rockhill said. “It’s our family, our friends, our neighbors down the street that all benefit from a hospital that has all of our best interests at heart.”

The Rockhills have become advocates of Baptist, sharing their knowledge and inspiration with others in the community about Baptist’s Mission, Vision and Values.

 “We are grateful to Rock and Jessica for their passion and desire to impact their community in the most meaningful way,” said Mark Faulkner, president and CEO of Baptist Health Care. “They have been incredible partners with us throughout our journey to transform health care into the future.”
