About Compassionate Care

Love is patient and kind... Love never ends. ­ 1 Corinthians 13

From tiny seeds, great forests can bloom. The Baptist Healing Trust grew from seeds planted across the long tradition of loving care at Baptist Hospital in Nashville, TN (founded in 1918). Charitable health care is traditionally grounded on the belief that the provision of healthcare must grow from deep compassion. Because we believe in the humanity and dignity of each human being as created by God, we deem that care must be compassionate in order to be truly healing.

In 2001, Baptist Hospital (Nashville, TN) embraced the concept of the Healing Hospital and from that seed the ideals of creating and growing a culture of compassion and healing have grown. These ideals are grounded in the teachings of Jesus and the parable of the Good Samaritan. We uphold the ideal that the offering of compassionate care giving arises from a Servant's Heart. A Servant's Heart is an individual who has a passion to serve, takes the extra steps to ensure that people's needs are met, and has a deep commitment to the organization's values, mission, and vision. Finally, we believe compassionate care is best expressed in a continuous chain of light from each caregiver to every patient, fellow caregiver, and care for one's self.
