Founded as a Christian ministry of healing

More than a century ago, Baylor Scott & White Health was founded as a Christian ministry of healing, and it exists to promote the well-being of all individuals, families and communities. We are a not-for-profit health system, which means we reinvest all surpluses in our communities, improving lives in the areas we serve.

Our commitment to our mission and vision provides high-quality healthcare, clinical research, medical education and dozens of community services to millions of Texans each year.

How we identify community health needs

It's important for Baylor Scott & White to be aware of the health status of the community to provide the greatest benefit to those in need. Through a community health needs assessment, we identify areas of need where we can extend a helping hand.
