Community Health in Louisville
How is Baptist Health Louisville involved in our community?
Baptist Health Louisville is very involved in the Kentuckiana community in Jefferson and surrounding counties.

We also want to encourage our community to be as healthy as they can be through screenings, educational programs, health fairs and our internal efforts.
