At Baptist Health we're thinking about the future of central Alabama as well as all the people who live here. We're deeply committed to providing Montgomery, its residents and our neighbors in the surrounding areas with healthcare that compares with the finest available anywhere. And as we look ahead, all the signs point to a renewed emphasis on helping people to reduce their risks of illness and disease while teaching them to live healthier lives. For hospitals, it's the wave of the future. For Baptist Health it means continuing a focus on preventive care that we began many years ago--well ahead of its time.
So while other healthcare providers around the country hurry to get up-to-date by developing wellness programs and services like Baptist's, we're addressing the concerns of tomorrow. Like keeping costs down as we expand our services to meet the needs of central Alabama. And embracing new advancements that can shorten treatment and recuperation times. So while we continue to teach members of the community and their families how to stay healthy today, as we have in the past, we're using all our knowledge, skills and the most advanced technology available to improve healthcare for central Alabama.
Baptist Health also serves the community and local businesses with a wide range of wellness programs and services designed to help people live healthier and happier lives. The Baptist Wellness Connection serves as a center for disseminating information that focuses on preventive measures to the public as well as a place for people to attend classes and seminars.
From open-heart surgery and rehabilitative services to community outreach and support groups encompassing almost any medical need or problem, Baptist is committed to serving the complete healthcare needs of the community. By successfully meeting those needs in so many ways, it's easy to see why Baptist Health has truly become central Alabama's healthcare leader.
