Nurses: Critical for Care

There’s no one more critical in caring for Baptist’s patients than our nurses. For more than a century, the nurses of Baptist Health System have been an integral part of delivering compassionate care.

At Baptist, we applaud the dedicated nurses who deliver patient-focused care every day. Our nurses are committed to our first priority: that our patients receive the best treatment possible. That’s Baptist Care.

Frontline Caregivers

Whether they are helping to bring a new life into the world, rushing to stabilize a patient in the Emergency Room, or monitoring a post-op patient to make sure they are emerging safely and comfortably from anesthesia and surgery, every nurse’s role is crucial.

“Today’s nurses are highly educated and have critical input in the care of their patients as the frontline caregiver in the hospital,” says Tommye Austin, PhD(c), RN, Chief Nursing Executive at the Baptist Health System. “They collaborate with physicians and the entire healthcare team to help provide the best health care possible for each individual.”

Whether newly graduated or with years of experience at the bedside, the nurses of Baptist Health System have our gratitude, respect and thanks as they guide our patients and our hospitals in a positive direction.
