The new Baptist Health Medical Center - Little Rock set to be completed by Spring 2017.

The Baptist Health Foundation exists simply to provide financial support to Baptist Health whose mission is to aid our community in good health and well-being.

Since August 1963, we have given back over $85,000,000 for life-saving equipment and programs that educate our patients, their families and the communities where they live on being healthy. In addition to providing technology and wellness programs, we provide continuous education for our nurses who heal on a daily basis as well as scholarships for our students who begin their journeys to save lives. Baptist Health Foundation works daily to help all Arkansans “Keep On Amazing.”

Giving Opportunities

The Baby Project provides hotel rooms to our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) families who live 50-plus miles from Little Rock. This allows families to stay close to their babies who are facing weeks or months in our NICU. Donations are also used to purchase necessary equipment for the NICU. The Baby Project needs $50,000 a year to maintain the program. To make a donation or secure a plate on the NICU Legacy Wall, visit
