Baptist Health Lexington, an award-winning 391-bed acute and skilled care facility, is also known for medical research and education. It is also one of the few hospitals in the nation to be designated a Magnet® hospital for nursing excellence three times by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. In 2014 and 2015, the hospital was named the best in Kentucky by U.S. News & World Report.
Specialized, comprehensive patient services include cancer, heart and stroke care, women’s health (including mother and baby care), orthopedics, sleep disorders and rehabilitation.
All hospital rooms are now private as part of a $246 million expansion project including the North Tower, which houses a cancer center, medical/surgical areas, inpatient imaging and a women’s center.
Established in 1954 as Central Baptist, the hospital has a strong commitment to its community, demonstrated through its health screenings/fairs and events such as A Midsummer Night’s Run and the Children’s Charity Classic.
Baptist Health offers 49 points of care in the Lexington area through a network of healthcare providers for patients – from Baptist Health Medical Group offices, to Baptist Health Express Care inside Walmart stores and Baptist Health Occupational Medicine.
