Baptist Patient Stories

Part of the Baptist vision is to offer safe, integrated, patient-focused, high quality, innovative and cost-effective care. This means that our patients and their well-being are our top priority. Our facility has been gifted with the ability to help patients get better, and every day we intend to do just that.

To get to know the real Baptist Memorial Health Care, our history, leadership and awards are important–but not nearly as important as our patients and their stories of hope, courage and determination. We are proud to have played a part in the stories of our patients, which you can read below.

Baptist Memorial Rehabilitation Hospital

"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

"I got nothing but reassurance from the staff from the moment I walked in the door. This hospital is the best kept secret in Memphis. The staff is the most caring in the world." -Martha Bunn

"I was so pleasantly surprised about the care and personal attention that I saw my beloved aunt Helen receive. Every person seemed truly interested in his/her patients and getting them out of the hospital in good shape, able to resume a normal life." -Actress, Dixie Carter

"I had reconstructive foot surgery and an overnight stay at Baptist Rehab–Germantown in August 2002. While I dreaded the surgery, the entire experience was professional, efficient, and comforting. When I think back on the experience, I don't remember anything unpleasant, only the calm and peaceful feeling the staff evoked on my overnight stay. They were re-assuring and provided everything I needed and requested to set me on the way to recovery. I highly recommend Baptist Rehab–Germantown!"  -Margie Augustine
