Since our modest beginning in 1912 with a 150-bed hospital, Baptist has grown to meet the expanding needs of the communities we serve, at one point becoming the largest privately owned hospital in the nation.
In keeping with the three-fold ministry of Christ — Healing, Preaching and Teaching — Baptist Memorial Health Care is committed to providing quality health care.
We will be the provider of choice by transforming the delivery of health care through partnering with patients, families, physicians, care providers, employers and payers; and by offering safe, integrated, patient-focused, high quality, innovative and cost-effective care.

The doctors were great. I'm a technical person and like to know what's going on so I can do my own research. They answered all my questions and were very informative and accommodating.Jacob Culbreath
The Christmas Story: Told by Rev. Jimmy Terry
Rev. Jimmy Terry shares the Christmas story at a Baptist Memorial Health Care Board of Trustees meeting. Rev. Terry, a longtime Baptist board member and founder of both Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church and Tabernacle Christian School, died in June 2017.
Before dying, Rev. Terry spearheaded an “all about Jesus” sign campaign to remind people that Christmas and Easter should focus on Jesus.
In honor of Rev. Terry, Baptist started a monthly preaching series called the Rev. Jimmy Terry Preaching Series: It’s All About Jesus in August 2017.
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.
Our Commitment to Quality Patient Care
Excellent patient care is not about the quantity of patients treated. It’s not about how many people walk through our doors. Rather, Baptist Memorial Health Care views exceptional patient care as a strong commitment to quality. This means that we treat nationally recognized quality indicators as important benchmarks, and transparency is crucial to our success.
At Baptist Memorial Health Care, we believe strongly in corporate citizenship and recognize the importance of collaboration with local organizations to build stronger and healthier communities.
Every year, Baptist contributes and provides in-kind services to hundreds of nonprofit organizations through programs, seminars, health fairs, board participation, events, employee engagement and more.
