<p> Regarded as one of the premier health care systems in the nation, Baptist Memorial Health Care is an award-winning network dedicated to providing compassionate, high-quality care for patients. With 14 affiliate hospitals throughout the Mid-South, Baptist combines convenience with excellence of care — two reasons we have been named among the top health care systems in the country for several years.
With the intention of caring for people close to their homes, the Baptist system also offers more than 3,100 affiliated physicians; home, hospice and psychiatric care; minor medical clinics; a network of surgery, rehabilitation and other outpatient centers; and an education system highlighted by the Baptist College of Health Sciences. <br><br>
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. But what has remained is the same caring atmosphere that inspired our founders. From our kitchen staff and office personnel to our experienced medical staff and renowned clinical services, that pervasive spirit of caring inspires every area of operation at Baptist. </p>
