A Message from Whit Hughes, Executive Director

Thank you for your ongoing support of Baptist Health Foundation. Through your generous involvement, Baptist Health Systems continues to deliver the exceptional levels of care and service that have been the hallmarks of our organization for over a century. 

2015 saw Baptist Health Systems recognized as a recipient of the Healthgrades Patient Safety Excellence Aware and Outstanding Patient Experience Award. Considering less than 100 healthcare systems in the United States received both awards, this honor placed our team in the Top 2% nationally. What a privilege it is to be associated with an organization recognized for providing the highest quality healthcare experiences…while doing so in an environment driven by Christian faith.
