Small Business Spotlight - Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City

Dear Chamber Members:

Recently, Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City (BMH-UC) was recognized as a top performer by The Joint Commission and Premier, Inc.

BMH-UC earned The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval for Hospital Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal of Approval is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization's commitment to providing safe and effective patient care.

In addition, Premier, Inc. recognized Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City as a finalist for the Quest Award for High-value Healthcare for providing outstanding patient care. Nationwide, only seven hospitals received finalist recognition for achieving top performance in various categories.

These achievements were possible thanks to dedicated colleagues, physicians, and volunteers who are committed to fulfilling our mission, mirroring the three-fold ministry of Christ-healing, preaching, and teaching.

In addition, over the past year, we celebrated the opening of the new Baptist Medical Group-The Doctors' Clinic, the opening of the cardiac rehabilitation department, and the implementation of the electronic medical record that includes MyChart, which puts control of your health information back where it belongs-with you.

In October, Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City will celebrate 65 years of service. As we reflect, we are so thankful for our blessings. Over the past 65 years, the hospital has undergone some significant changes, and it has continuously proven to be a leader in the healthcare industry.

Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City is more than a place where people go to heal; it is a part of the Ken-Tenn area that fosters health and represents hope. From providing treatment and comfort to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City wants to be central to a healthy and optimistic community.

When seeking hospital care, patients have the right to choose. Choice in health care is important, and we want you to get the care you need and want. We consider it a privilege to serve you, your family, and our community by providing quality health care close to home.
