Throughout history, Kentucky's Baptist hospitals have been rooted in philanthropy. Baptist Health Corbin opened in Corbin, Kentucky in 1986 as a replacement facility for the former Southeastern Kentucky Baptist Hospital. Baptist Health Corbin's mission statement was developed in 1994 and was adopted by employees, management staff, medical staff and board of directors as an apt description of what we should be and how we should be perceived by those we serve. Baptist Health Corbin embraces a set of values that provide a foundation for how we go about achieving our mission and vision. These values are handed down to us from our parent organization and are embraced by Baptist Health Corbin as the way in which we go about our daily duties and activities. These values are the backbone, or character of the organization and we strive to reflect these values in all of our activities.
The Baptist Health Foundation Corbin continues this heritage of service and leadership by fostering partnerships to further enhance the quality medical care provided by the hospital. Donations to the Foundation help our physicians, staff and other care providers go beyond the medical needs of our patients.
Private support provides funds for new facilities, advanced technology and equipment, and specialized training for physicians, nurses and staff. It also provides funds for complementary therapies, support groups, community health screenings and extra services that make a patient’s hospital stay more comfortable.
