Fulfilling Our Mission


Our Mission
The mission of Baptist Health is to improve the health and well-being of individuals, and to promote the sanctity and preservation of life, in the communities we serve. Baptist Health is a faith-based organization guided by the spirit of Jesus Christ and the Judeo-Christian ethic. We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of clinical and service excellence, rooted in the utmost integrity and moral practice. Consistent with its spiritual foundation, Baptist Health is dedicated to providing high-quality, cost-effective, compassionate healthcare services to all, regardless of religion, creed, race or national origin, including, as permitted by its resources, charity care to those in need.

Our Guiding Principle
Through our compassionate healthcare services, we seek to reveal the healing presence of God.
 
Our Vision
Baptist Health will be the preeminent healthcare provider in the communities we serve, the organization that people instinctively turn to for their healthcare needs. Baptist Health will offer a broad range of clinical services that are evidence-based and compassionately provided to ensure patient safety, superior clinical outcomes and the highest levels of satisfaction with a patient- and family-centered focus. Baptist Health will be a national and international leader in healthcare innovation.
 
We Reach Deep into Our Communities
Baptist Health South Florida is a faith-based force for health, well-being and medical excellence. Our not-for-profit mission is broad, reaching deep into the communities we serve.
We strive to use the latest technology to give high-quality, compassionate medical care to those in need, regardless of their ability to pay. We are committed to a corporate culture rooted in integrity and high ethical standards, reflecting our spiritual foundation.

We serve as a lifeline for uninsured people by providing millions of dollars worth of free medical care every year.

We offer spiritual support to patients and their families, as well as our own employees. We give free health screenings and conduct educational programs to teach people how to prevent disease and embrace wellness.

We partner with and support dozens of community organizations, faith-based groups and health clinics to make South Florida a healthier place for everyone.
