Message to the community about COVID-19
Whenever you need us, we're here for you.

The Baptist Health family is steadfastly committed to your health and well-being. It’s in our DNA.
For most of us, working at Baptist Health is a calling. We serve in non-profit, mission-driven health care as our life’s work; we want to fulfill our vision of a lifetime of health, together.
This is where we live and work. And because we’re locally governed, every member of our Board of Directors lives here, too, and cares deeply about the people in the communities we serve.
We know there are a lot of questions and anxiety about the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). We’ll do our best to answer your questions, along with our colleagues at the local health departments. We will be by your side, providing our expertise, our commitment, our compassion, and easy access to care and education.
I want to assure you: Baptist Health is prepared. Year-round, we drill, refine our processes, prepare, test, and then prepare some more. We are in a continual state of readiness for public health emergencies.
Earlier this week, we expanded access to care during the COVID-19 crisis through virtual visits. Simply visit Telescope Health and for a doctor’s appointment from the convenience of your mobile phone or computer.
We are also offering practical information for you and your family from our medical experts through a series of dedicated Juice articles (and myth-busters) designed to help you manage life, health and work while reducing risk of infection.
In these ways and more, we’re here for you. And, as always, if you have comments or any questions we’ve not answered, we want to know. Please share them with us here.
