BAYLOR HEALTH CARE SYSTEM FOUNDATION

Baylor Scott & White Health exists to serve all people by providing personalized health and wellness through exemplary care, education and research as a Christian ministry of healing.
Medical Education: The Association of American Medical Colleges predicts a nationwide shortage of more than 90,000 doctors by 2020. A recognized leader in the training of medical professionals since 1903, Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas (Baylor Dallas) trains approximately 220 residents and fellows in 30 specialties each year. As the cost of providing medical education rises, donor support is needed for Baylor to continue to offer high-quality medical educational programs to help secure the future health of our community. Approximately $2.5 million is needed each year to fund residents and fellows at Baylor Dallas. Child Life Specialists: Each year, more than 2 million children in the U.S. experience the death of a parent. The numbers are significantly higher when grandparents and siblings are included. With support from philanthropy, Baylor Scott & White Health provides support for children and families, free of charge, to guide them through this often overlooked disturbing, even terrifying, event in a child's life. Last year, five child life specialists at Baylor Scott & White hospitals in North Texas served the emotional needs of 2,500 children of adult patients who are facing serious, life-limiting illnesses and/or are near their end-of-life. Philanthropy is needed to sustain and expand this important lifeline to children and families in crisis. Mission & Ministry: Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas was founded in 1903 with the understanding that it would be a humanitarian institution, open to all persons - regardless of their faith - and prepared to minister to each patient as a whole, multi-dimensional human being. We know that physical health is inexorably tied to meeting a person's spiritual, emotional and social needs. Philanthropy is needed to support Baylor Scott & White programs that address these needs: pastoral care for those of all faiths, clinical pastoral education and medical missions.
