Performing Sacred Work by Delivering Quality Healthcare Solutions

The mission of Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas is and always has been dedicated to providing quality healthcare and sacred work in a Christian environment to all who need it. For over sixty years, our Partners in Caring — physicians, 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.

The dedicated staff at our Beaumont hospital provide their time and talents to performing life-changing education and community-focused programs and services meant to enable us to achieve our vision of improving the health of our community.

Our History

Established in 1945 when L.E. Stagg Sr. — a Beaumont businessman and Baptist leader — led the effort to build a “City of Healing” as a response to the serious hospital bed shortage in the Southeast Texas area. In keeping with the spirit of his membership in the Baptist General Convention of Texas, the Christian emphasis continues to be exemplified through the interrelationships of our organization’s management, 1500 employees, and the presence and participation of the chaplaincy in the healing process.

Having served Southeast Texas for more than 65 years, Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas has had the opportunity to touch, heal, and change many lives. With a long history of clinical excellence, high quality healthcare, cutting-edge technology, excellent customer service, and a mission and vision founded in faith, Baptist Hospitals is privileged to be entrusted with the health of our families, friends, and neighbors.

Serving the Southeast Texas Community

Baptist Beaumont Hospital is located just off I-10 approximately 90 miles east of Houston, 60 miles from Galveston and 25 miles from the Louisiana border. This area of Southeast Texas is home to some of the world’s largest refining and petrochemical centers, and has become a source of sophisticated medical technology, precision industrial equipment, large and small business, and higher education facilities that appreciate the low cost of living and the skilled workforce.

As the population changes, healthcare must adapt to the needs of the community. Caring for generations — from pediatrics to geriatrics — requires constant adaptation to meet the needs of the population. Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas provides abundant resources for outpatient services, inpatient services, high definition imaging, and emergency medical care 24/7 for all those needing services.

Specialized Services to Deliver Better Care

Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas hosts the only Behavioral Health Inpatient facility in Southeast Texas, a strong emphasis has been placed on serving patients struggling with mental and/or addiction disorders. New programs have been designed to support those in need of intensive outpatient therapy, group therapy, medical detoxification, and crisis stabilization for all generations.

As the need for cancer services continued to increase in our regional area as well, Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas Partnered with the Cancer Center of Southeast Texas and Altus Cancer Center to create the Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas Regional Cancer Network. This consolidation of specialized radiation therapy, hematology and medical oncology serves to expand and enhance regional cancer care in Southeast Texas.

This partnership, combined with the recent Comprehensive Accreditation through the Commission on Cancer for the Baptist Cancer Center demonstrates the commitment to providing safe, efficient, and high-quality cancer services in a loving environment to members of the community.

Care for the Whole Family

With the only pediatric emergency room in Southeast Texas, the Children’s Emergency Center boasts five treatment rooms in a designated child-friendly area. The pediatric emergency unit is open 24 hours a day/7 days a week, staffed with nurses who have special pediatric emergency training.

As part of the commitment to the members of our community, Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas partnered with the Beaumont Foundation and the Reaud Foundation to open the Albert E. and Gena Reaud Guest House to provide lodging for members of our community and surrounding areas receiving medical treatment.
