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
For their annual holiday donation drive, the Baptist Health Caring Council collected blankets and hygiene items for JASMYN.

The Baptist Health Caring Council brings together team members from across Baptist Health to support an authentic caring environment for staff and patients!
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.
“I remember saying a prayer in the truck while waiting for the rescue unit – ‘If it’s time for me to go, I’m ready. But please don’t leave me like this for my family, unable to talk and completely paralyzed.”

"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. Everyone who comes here is seen by a board-certified physician and nurse, like me, who really cares. I love reassuring my patients that they are in the right place..." __________________________________________

“They are amazing little dogs,” she said. “They take your mind off your other problems ... I love them." Among the trained therapists helping Baptist Medical Center Beaches joint replacement patients with their physical therapy are toy poodles named Lil Darlyn and Koko! As the patients go through range of motion and other exercises in chairs in the rehabilitation center, registered therapy dogs Lil Darlyn and Koko do the same maneuvers with the help of their owner a few feet away. They even wear the same red, non-skid fall precaution socks. *Story by @timesunionmedia at the link in profile!
