Strengthening Our Community Through Partnerships
Baptist Health Care knows the value of collaborative partnerships with our fellow not-for-profit organizations to meet the broader health care needs of the community. Together, we can make a greater impact on our community to provide education and increase frequency and access to needed health care services. One such partnership is the Escambia Community Clinics. Thanks to Baptist Health Care’s annual contribution of $525,000 in 2009, the clinic was able to provide 326 inpatient hospitalization days and more than 987 charity patients with prescription drugs through pharmaceutical company drug programs. This represents more than 4,935 prescriptions with a value of more than $587,265. Baptist Health Care’s additional support of the Santa Rosa Community Clinic delivered 8,400 outpatient visits to people needing care.
We are proud to partner with our physicians to offer WE CARE. This important program provides health education, private primary and specialty medical care for indigent residents. Baptist social workers work diligently each year to gain Medicaid eligibility for prospective WE CARE patients. In total, Baptist Health Care allocated $2,360,800.We are committed to being a good neighbor even in tough economic times. We dedicate financial allocations to local organizations in support of health care awareness, education and economic development. Last year, Baptist Health Care provided more than $200,000 to community sponsorships and the United Way of Escambia County.
