Heart disease and stroke continue to be among the nation’s leading killers. For more than two decades, Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute has taken a pioneering role in caring for people with health problems related to the heart and circulatory system. The Institute has built a neurointerventional angiography suite to treat stroke and other neurological conditions. This suite supports the Stroke Program at Baptist Hospital’s Neuroscience Center. Support for the Institute may be designated in a variety of areas. Naming opportunities are available.

Families with children who are undergoing treatment for cancer are devastated, both emotionally and financially. A special fund supports needy families by helping with housing, transportation, access to a child psychologist and additional services that otherwise would not be available.
Doctors Hospital has a tradition of excellence, with an outstanding reputation for orthopedics, general surgery, neurosurgery — including a state-of-the-art Gamma Knife — gynecology, gynecologic oncology and emergency and general medicine.
