Ann L. and Joseph H. Powell Library

The Ann L. and Joseph H. Powell Library contains books, periodicals, DVDs and other educational materials on a variety of health-related topics. Established in March 2005 at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis through a generous gift by Joseph Powell and his wife, the 2,000-square-foot consumer library also features a meeting room complete with video teleconferencing.

Born in Etowah, Tenn., the youngest of nine children, Joseph H. Powell was president of Baptist Memorial Hospital from 1980 to 1994 and president of Baptist Memorial Health Care System from 1981 to 1994.

During that time, Baptist experienced unprecedented expansion from a single hospital in downtown Memphis to a health care system with services and hospitals providing care throughout West Tennessee, North Mississippi and Eastern Arkansas.
