After just one day, 78-year-old Vernon Camp was back at home with a new heart valve and a new reason to bang the drum. The long-time musician received his valve replacement under conscious sedation versus general anesthesia which allows for shorter procedure time, reduced length of stay and lower overall cost.
Baptist Health is the only hospital in Jacksonville offering this option thanks to Dr. Satpathy and her team. http://bapt.st/sJyW307Wq6o

Merry Christmas to you and yours from Baptist Health, and a big thank you to our team members who are at work across our 5 hospitals and other facilities today serving our community through the holiday.

Visit https://www.cdc.gov/getsmart/week/ or stop by the Baptist Health Jacksonville atrium this Friday to learn more from our antimicrobial experts!

"You are not alone. You are not to blame. You will get help." Valerie Plame Wilson on #postpartumdepression encouraging women and community members at tonight's Sisisky-Kleppinger Lecture @wjctjax.
Changing healthcare for good in our community is what Baptist Health is all about. Access, affordable care, and a lack of knowledge about services and dozens of other factors contributed to a wide range of health care needs among communities in northeast Florida. That is the conclusion of a newly released study commissioned by a group of local health care organizations. The Jacksonville Metropolitan Community Benefit Partnership, which includes Baptist Health and @wolfsonchildrens, recently released its second Community Health Needs Assessment. You can read Baptist and Wolfson's hospital-specific reports at the link in profile.

"Some days, my job can be stressful. But, when a patient hugs me and tells me how thankful she is that I was there for her, I remember why I became a nurse.

I love reassuring my patients that they are in the right place..." __________________________________________
