We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
At Baptist, we believe showing our patients and families the best care includes ministering to their spiritual needs as well.
Mission and Ministry
Baptist Health System was formally affiliated with the Baptist General Convention of Texas (BGCT) for more than 50 years. In January 2003, when ownership of our healthcare system was transferred to Vanguard Health Systems, we entered into a new relationship with the BGCT.
Now, through the leadership of our Mission and Ministry Division, we are working as partners in Christian ministry with the BGCT, providing pastoral care for patients, families and employees, and practical service in our community.
Mission and Ministry Division is also responsible for maintaining and building our relationship with the BGCT and other faith communities, and for fostering our employees’ commitment to community service.
Chaplains in service to patients and families
Our chaplains work in consultation with the entire medical team to provide holistic, heartfelt health care. They understand the essential spiritual component to your wellness and know how to deliver the compassionate care that is at the heart of Baptist.
Patients and families may choose to call on chaplains 24 hours a day, 7 days a week:
Before and after surgery or other serious procedures
When confronting new diagnosis or difficult illness
For help coping with fear or uncertainty
When concerned about the past or future, family or death
Other pastoral care services
Devotional materials available for spiritual inspiration and comfort
Bibles in all patient rooms
