Baptist Health Lexington
When anchor institutions like hospitals invest in their communities, the impact they make is immeasurable. This impact is economic — it creates jobs. The impact is cultural — it ensures a quality and way of life today and far into the future. The impact is personal — real lives are saved.
WHY THIS PROJECT, WHY NOW
As a not-for-profit community hospital, the needs of our community come first. This campaign is a direct result of analyzing those needs and prioritizing the most efficient and effective road forward. The simple fact is our community is aging, the need for specialized care has never been greater. Our community is experiencing population growth and territorial expansion and making healthcare accessible in these neighborhoods is critical to supporting this growth. Our community is burdened by cancer, heart disease and other health crises—new innovations and ways of caring must be pursued. The following is an overview of where your collaboration and partnership can both support your community’s health needs best:
- Mission Advancement: When you give to the Baptist Health Foundation Lexington Mission Advancement Fund, you don’t give to the Foundation, you give through the Foundation. Your gift supports a culture of innovation and compassion. Gifts go to work immediately for such things as: providing complementary therapies, transportation and medication assistance, state-of-the-art equipment, technologies that bridge innovation and communication, programmatic upgrades and facility improvements throughout our Lexington hospital and surrounding points of care.
- Nursing: Nurses are at the center of our healthcare experience. Time and time again, they serve as a living example of compassion, collaboration and joy–a kind of societal glue that holds us all together. Your support provides education scholarships, research, facility upgrades and equipment upgrades to better support nurses as they care for you and your family.
- Baptist Health Hamburg: As the cornerstone of this campaign, supporting the Hamburg project accelerates progress, enhances patient, loved ones and care provider experiences and brings a new dawn to innovation, access and preventative care to Central and Eastern Kentucky.
At Baptist Health Lexington, our patients are not just a number. We care for them as if they were our own family. That’s why we work to continually meet the needs of our community to deliver faith-based, quality healthcare.
Our desire to serve you is evident in how our services have grown, our buildings have expanded and our technology has advanced to meet the emerging needs of Lexington and the surrounding area.
I have long admired our team in Lexington and how they have created a culture of excellence through high standards and a focus on patient care. I’m grateful for the opportunity to lead those efforts, with a continued emphasis on excellent patient care, physician engagement and growth.
Whether you call on us to deliver a new life into this world or to provide lifesaving measures that allow you to return home to your family, we provide the highest level of care with the best team of physicians and nurses. It is with your help that we are looking to expand our offered services of care within our community to safeguard one of the most valuable assets you have–your health.
A successful campaign will leave a mark far beyond the walls of Baptist Health Lexington and allow us to serve more families in the Central and Eastern Kentucky region. With the construction of our Hamburg location, we will further increase access to care and expand our footprint in the community. Your support will enable us to provide educational development opportunities for staff eager to take care of you and upgrade additional facilities and technology that will enhance patient care.
Baptist Health has an amazing history, with 68 years of innovation, leading technology and services. We provide exceptional care from a team of physicians, nurses and staff who maintain our Christ-centered mission. We are leaning into our future with abundant confidence and an exciting vision for Baptist Health Lexington’s next 68 years.

Greater access. More convenience. State-of-the-art technologies. Striving to transform how we all experience health and wellness services.
Experiences are PersonalPerhaps nothing is as personal as our health. Here we wrestle with all that we believe. We face emotional extremes, doubts, fears and even joy. When loved ones are facing a health crisis—action is taken to soothe and comfort their experience. It’s what makes us human. Healthcare is as much mental and spiritual as it is physical. Healing environments change experiences and they change outcomes.
