Dear friend,

Now more than ever, Hopkins County has become well acquainted with the tides of change as we have entered a joint venture with another prominent health system to create a new entity and come under new leadership.

The rapid pace of change is not only something that we are experiencing at a local level, but an overall shift in healthcare through technological advancements, ever evolving ways in which we deliver care and the rising costs that are associated with providing the quality of care that you deserve. As we move forward, Baptist Health Deaconess aims to reimagine how to not only meet the immediate needs of our community, but to thoughtfully prepare for the future.

With each coming year, Hopkins County will experience more challenges in healthcare than we have seen in generations, and each will bring its own trials. The transformation of healthcare in our community requires us to enhance our ability to provide more access to care while supporting advancements and innovations to ensure the patient experience is at the center of it all. As we adapt to the demands for service while embracing our foundational mission, the need for private community support has never been greater.

This campaign signifies our hope to come together with our community and generous supporters to move, Onward as One, to providing the highest quality healthcare possible for our friends, neighbors and loved ones. Together, we can improve the future of healthcare for individuals across our region and ensure that those we love have access to lifesaving care within the comfort of what they call “home.”

By joining Baptist Health Deaconess in supporting this campaign, we can make western Kentucky stronger and healthier than ever before. Your involvement and past support has been sincerely appreciated and wisely invested to serve our region. Will you please join us again as we move “Onward as One”?

Thank you for partnering with us to reimagine healthcare and transform our collective futures.

In gratitude,
Terry Douglass
Chairperson, Baptist Health Deaconess Madisonville Foundation

Access Innovation

  • Access Matters


    When life becomes unpredictable, the comfort in knowing help is nearby fills us with hope. Communities exist for this very reason, and so do community hospitals. However, real hope goes beyond proximity, it’s about people, it’s about the ability to pay and it’s about the highest level of care possible. Access to care is about everyone, every time.
  • Experiences are Personal

    Perhaps 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.
  • Innovation Saves Lives


    Imagination and inspiration are real. They exist because problems exist. In healthcare, when breakthrough ideas produce breakthrough technologies, it’s a responsibility to ensure they’re available in our communities. Being given the best possible chance cannot be left up to chance, it must be tenaciously pursued.
