Baptist Heart Institute Fund
Baptist Foundation provided four additional extra corporeal membrane, or ECMO, devices for the care and treatment of COVID-19 patients in the ICU. These devices saved the lives of countless patients at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis, the only hospital the only area to offer ECMO treatment for COVID-19 during the pandemic's peak.
Friends of Nursing
Friends of Nursing is funded by employees, grateful patients and memorial gifts to provide financial assistance, continuing education and professional development opportunities to Baptist’s nurses. Last year the fund helped 65 nurses attend important nursing education conferences, workshops and review courses.
The fund also helped offset the cost of receiving professional certifications for nurses around the system, to help them expand their knowledge and capabilities, and enhance their career opportunities.
