Diversity in the Workforce

Creating a diverse, inclusive team has been an ongoing effort for Baptist Health, and we are recognized as a leader in building teams this way.

As South Florida's largest private employer, with more than 27,000 employees Baptist Health has built a world-class team reflective of our multicultural community. We strive to ensure that underrepresented groups are recruited and retained in staff and management positions across the organization.

We have a long history of being recognized as a top employer with regard to diversity and inclusion, as evidenced by our recognition in Fortune, Working Mother and Modern Healthcare magazines.

Recruiting and retaining a multicultural workforce is key to Baptist Health's success. That is why we are committed to creating an inclusive environment embracing all people and cultures.

Baptist Health facilities are located throughout Miami-Dade, Broward, Monroe and Palm Beach counties, which make up one of the most diverse regions in the country. At Baptist Health, we take into account belief practices, communication styles and attitudes when providing care.

Baptist Health has received acclaim for its employment practices. Recent research by the Gallup Organization ranks Baptist Health employee satisfaction in the 89th percentile, well above comparable organizations.

We also identify key talent for career cultivation and advancement.

Diversity in the Marketplace

Diversity in the Marketplace

Baptist Health seeks to be a good corporate citizen in the South Florida community. Minority vendors are an integral part of this community and bring a unique set of skills and experience to the table. That is why Baptist Health has many initiatives to increase our business with minority vendors.

As a faith-based, not-for-profit organization, we also look for businesses with strong ethical standards in employee benefit compensation and deep roots in the South Florida community.

“Baptist Health recognizes the value diversity brings to our employees, customers, and communities. It is our firm belief that having a diverse supplier pool reflective of the markets we serve helps to build customer loyalty, strengthens the communities in which we operate, makes us stronger as an organization, and gives us a competitive edge. We are committed to the development of a diverse supplier base, and to maintaining an inclusive work environment that values and supports diversity and inclusion for our employees, vendors, and anyone with whom we do business.

Guided by our Supplier Code of Conduct, we expect our suppliers to commit to an inclusive work environment and equal opportunities. We also encourage our employees to be inclusive in their daily business decisions when selecting the best supplier to meet our business needs.

All suppliers that seek to do business with us must demonstrate the ability to be reliable and provide competitively priced, high-quality goods and services.

Diverse suppliers may include women-owned, veteran-owned, minority-owned, disabled-owned, LGBTQ+-owned, disadvantaged, and other small businesses, where applicable.”

-George Godfrey, Chief Supply Chain Officer
