​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Baylor Scott & White Health employees have consistently affirmed the organization's mission and ministry as an influential factor in their work. In addition, Baylor Scott & White has consistently supported its employees' passions and invested in partnerships in Texas, the United States and around the world that reflect its commitment to health and healing.​​

The system started Faith in Action Initiatives (FIAI) to maximize its impact locally and world-wide by providing employees spiritual development, volunteer opportunities and prioritizing the wide array of partnership/support opportunities in order to invest system resources wisely, avoid waste and duplication of efforts.

FIAI Programs

Second Life Resources

Baylor Scott & White Health is a very blessed hospital organization with a constant influx of new equipment and supplies. We receive recyclable equipment from the various hospitals, sort through those materials at the FIAI warehouse and freely provide these supplies to worthy opportunities on the local as well the international scenes. Local missions can often times utilize our office furniture and filing systems. Dozens of non-profit organizations have benefited from second life resources in the past year.

Disaster Relief

Faith in Action coordinates the disaster relief efforts of Baylor Scott & White Health. This office gathers physical, medical resources as well as money to address disasters anywhere in the world. In the past, we have responded to disasters in Japan, India, Pakistan and Philippines. Locally, we have reached out to New England; West, Texas; Colorado; Oklahoma; Missouri; and Arkansas.

James Lecture

These lectures are designed to bring clergy and medical personnel together to discuss a common point of concern for all patients, families, and our society. For example, medical ethics issues and end-of-life concerns have to be addressed from both spiritual and clinical perspective.

Faith Community Health

Faith Community Health seeks to bridge the gap between healthcare and faith communities. This program pairs volunteers from area churches with at-risk patients who have been referred by healthcare professionals. The goal of the Faith Community Health Program is to partner a volunteer with an individual who could benefit from extra support, struggles with loneliness, and needs assistance connecting to resources.

Faith Community Caregivers are trained to support and offer a ministry of presence to patients, operating from four principles: Right door, providing and educating patients at the most appropriate location; Right time, educating and equipping individuals to help them recognize symptoms early; Ready to be treated, helping people prepare to share with their health care provider concerning symptoms, medications and home remedies and Reassured/Not alone, treating people with compassionate care, assuring them they are not alone.

Medical Missions

Faith in Action Initiatives provides monetary scholarships to Baylor Scott & White employees going on international missions trips. We are very enthusiastic for our employees' participation on such experiences where they can utilize their skills for God’s glory in an international context. Such a trip can shape their lives for the good, strengthening their faith, increasing their cultural insight and making them a more competent medical professional as they work for Baylor Scott & White.

Sacred Vocation Program

The aim of the Sacred Vocation Program (SVP) is to cultivate and renew a sense of sacred vocation for all BSWH staff thereby enhancing the spiritual and emotional care of patients and their families. “Spiritual” as used in this program means different things to different people. Some think of living their life purpose, some heart or soul-work. This facilitation group is for anyone who cares deeply about healing patients in body, mind and spirit. This aim is accomplished by following these guiding principles:

  • Nurturing the spirit of patients by first nurturing the spirit of staff/caregivers
  • Realizing that everyone has the power to heal and the power to harm
  • Recognizing one’s self as healer helps give meaning and validation to life
  • Shaping a healthy work environment allows for more meaningful experiences to occur
  • It is the right thing to do (mission, vision, values) and it produces results (patient satisfaction, employee satisfaction and retention)
