As a not-for-profit health care provider, we’ve made a commitment to the communities we serve to provide care and services that go far beyond what is expected of a hospital, including charity care, education, community involvement and partnerships and a wide variety of special programs and services.
It’s healthcare on a deeply personal level, where medical technology, facilities and knowledge combine with one-to-one caring and compassion. And it’s why, throughout Kentucky, the hospitals of the Baptist Health are known as the hospitals of choice.
