Our Ministry of Healing
For more than a century, Baylor Scott & White Health has existed to be a Christian ministry of healing and to serve all people through exemplary health care, education, research and community services. This includes providing care to those without health coverage or the means to pay.
As a not-for-profit health system, we use revenue over expenses to improve the health of the community. Our business is healing, and we have positioned ourselves in Texas as not only a provider of quality health care, but also as a business that truly cares about people.
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.
