Baptist Health maintains Neonatal Intensive Care Units at Baptist Medical Center East and Baptist Medical Center South, the highest level of neonatal care in Central Alabama serving 850-1,000 of our tiniest and most delicate patients each year.
Through community participation and corporate sponsorship of our annual Birdies for Babies golf tournament, as well as generous contributions from patient families and loved ones, the Neonatal Intensive Care Fund supplements Baptist Health’s ongoing efforts to provide state-of-the-art technology to ensure our NICU patients receive the best resources possible.
Baptist Hospice Fund
The Baptist Hospice fund provides needed financial assistance to indigent and/or uninsured Hospice patients each year. Baptist Hospice served over 300 patients in 13 counties last year. The majority of those patients were residents of Montgomery, Elmore and Autauga counties. They dealt with a life-changing diagnosis such as cancer, heart and lung disease or Alzheimer’s/Dementia. Our pediatric patients lived with either cancer or congenital abnormalities.
Baptist Hospice provided approximately 13,000 days of care with just short of 1,000 of those days being charity care days. 18 patients without a payor source received the same level of compassionate care, through team visits, comfort medications, equipment and supplies as that provided to our patients with a payor source ($200.00 per day X 1,000).
In addition to clinical care, Baptist Hospice has provided assistance with:
- Utility bills in weather extremes allowing patients to stay in their homes
- Birthday celebrations for patients from families and for a caregiver from a patient
- Memory books for a mother who lost her small child
- Transport of a grandson before the death of his grandmother
- Extermination of infestations and temporary housing
- Final wish beach trips and even a memorable anniversary dinner
As you can see, Baptist Hospice is more than just end of life care. Baptist Hospice is LIFE CARE.
