Why Choose Baptist?
Choosing a Hospital
On the surface, hospitals are very similar: doctors and nurses rushing to deliver aid, high-tech equipment monitoring the vital signs of patients and medications on hand to treat just about any illness. But, while hospitals have many similarities, they’re not all the same. And it’s up to you to make an informed choice.

Members of the Baptist Clinical Research Center team, who are available for inpatient or outpatient studies 24 hours a day, provide support to those wanting to benefit from the latest advances in medical treatment. Our network of more than 2,700 physician providers in 34 specialties is available to give skilled care to Baptist patients. And Baptist nurses are consistently named among the best in the region. Because we believe in the total care of patients, our Pastoral Care department concentrates on the spiritual needs of our patients.
A not-for-profit organization and community partner since 1912, Baptist spends millions each year reinvesting in and caring for the community through projects promoting community health. Camp Good Grief, the first children's grief camp in the Mid-South, is one of the many ways Baptist gives back to the communities we serve. Other efforts include free flu shot events; food drives; free health and wellness fairs and screenings; and partnerships with and support of schools and other charitable, non-profit organizations in the communities we serve, such as the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society and the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
