The mission of Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas is to provide quality healthcare and Sacred Work in a Christian environment to all who need it. We are pleased to present our 2010 Community Benefit Report, which outlines many of the community-focused programs and services that enable us to achieve our mission and improve the health of our community.
For over sixty years, Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas has been dedicated to providing quality health services in a Christian environment. Our Partners in Caring–our physicians, our nurses and staff, practice a philosophy that inspires an environment of teamwork, respect, encouragement, opportunity and trust. Our efforts continue each day as we strive to offer newer and better programs, services and technologies for the members of our community. Recently Baptist Beaumont Hospital has been recognized as a Nurse Friendly Hospital and has also been designation as a Magnet Recognition facility. Baptist Hospital’s award-winning care is complemented by being certified as an advanced Primary Stroke Care Center by the Joint Commission for Disease-Specific Care and the only Chest Pain Certified facility in Southeast Texas.
Baptist Beaumont Hospital’s focus on innovation implemented the Medivance’s Cooling Technology, the only one in Southeast Texas, is a precise noninvasive patient cooling device that is used at more than seventy percent of the nation’s top hospitals. The newest member of the Emergency Department is the RP-6 mobile robot system, made by InTouch Health, the robot allows doctors to “virtually” consult with patients, family members, and healthcare staff at a moment’s notice, even if miles away from the hospital. Another addition to services offered at Baptist Beaumont Hospital is the Stryker Orthopedic Navigation System offering a technology option that helps facilitate accurate implant alignment and proper ligament balancing, which are the most important prerequisites for the artificial knee joint stability, durability and sufficient range of motion. Navigated total knee replacement is an extremely successful way to treat qualifying patients with severe knee pain.
As a part of the commitment to the members of our community, Baptist Beaumont Hospital partnered with the Beaumont Foundation and the Reaud Foundation to open the Albert E. and Gena Reaud Family Shelter. The 3.2 million dollar project boasts 19 private bedrooms, dining area, kitchenette and prayer garden. With the addition of a fifty-two bed patient tower, a convenient care clinic, a new 64 slice CT Scanner and MRI that allows physicians new innovations in technology, and the newly established Infant Transport Team, Baptist Beaumont Hospital continues to carry its commitment to Southeast Texas into the twenty-first century.
