Giving Back

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'
– Acts 20:35

Baptist Memorial Health Care regularly serves communities in the Mid-South by offering safe, integrated, patient-focused, high quality, innovative and cost-effective medical care. But serving a community is about more than just helping patients feel better. It's about helping entire communities become the best they can be.

That's exactly how Baptist Memorial Health Care views its role in community outreach and giving back throughout the Mid-South.

Through donations of time, money and resources, Baptist employees and physicians regularly help to make the Mid-South a better place to live. Guided by its mission of healing, preaching and teaching set by Baptist's founders more than 100 years ago, Baptist is committed to serving our community with a focus on supporting health and human services and education initiatives.

All of the hospitals in the Baptist Memorial Health Care system offer a wealth of support in their respective communities. This section will show the generous giving provided by Baptist employees and physicians who truly encompass everything Baptist strives to be.
