Baptist Health is one of the largest not-for-profit health care systems in Kentucky. The system owns seven acute-care hospitals with more than 1,500 licensed beds in Louisville, Lexington, Richmond, Paducah, Corbin, Madisonville and La Grange, and manages a 300-bed acute-care hospital in Elizabethtown and the 25-bed Russell County Hospital.
Founded in 1924, Baptist Health has been bringing advanced medical technology, modern facilities, and many of the region's most prominent physicians and medical professionals to the cities and communities of Kentucky for more than 70 years.
But there's much more to Baptist Health than our network of hospitals and professionals. It's not just what we are; it's what we're about. From the beginning, our mission has been to provide medical services and enhance the health of the people and communities we serve. Our vision is to be the healthcare leader in Kentucky. And everyday, in everything we do, we live out our Christ-centered mission to others and work to achieve our vision, guided by these values: integrity, excellence, stewardship, collaboration and respect.
As a not-for-profit health care provider, we've made a commitment to the communities we serve to provide care and services that go far beyond what is expected of a hospital, including charity care, education, community involvement and partnerships and a wide variety of special programs and services.
It's healthcare on a deeply personal level, where medical technology, facilities and knowledge combine with one-to-one caring and compassion. And it's why, throughout Kentucky, the hospitals of the Baptist Health are known as the hospitals of choice.
