The staff of Baptist Health Medical Center - Little Rock is dedicated to delivering healthcare with an attitude of Christian compassion and personal concern. We believe delivering healthcare is more than a business. We feel it is a part of our Christian ministry.
Baptist Health Medical Center - Little Rock is the largest institution under the Baptist Health banner. With a full line of services available, BHMC-LR is equipped to cover the full continuum of health care, from birth to support at lifes' end.
BHMC-LR has always been the leader in heart care and heart transplantation. The need for donor hearts far exceeds the availability. BHMC-LR now offers the latest technology for helping the 5,000,000 Americans suffering from congestive heart failure - the Heart Mate. The HeartMate device is implanted alongside the patient's heart to help the natural heart's pumping capability when required, for activities such as climbing the stairs. The HeartMate allows patients once confined to the ICU to return home and live with very few restrictions while awaiting a transplant. This lowers the costs to the patient and may improve their overall well-being. BAPTIST HEALTH Medical Center - Little Rock was the first hospital in Arkansas to implant this life saving device.
Voted the "Best Place to Have a Baby" for the third year in a row, BHMC-Little Rock Women's Center has expanded and renovated the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to serve premature infants and their families even better!
BHMC-Little Rock opened its Outpatient Center expansion in November of 1998. This 123,000 square-foot facility located on the southern side of the Little Rock Campus, houses the BAPTIST HEALTH Breast Center, BAPTIST HEALTH Heart Center, CARTI and several physician offices.
