(12:4-TFNc)1001 Reflections. on Georgia Baptist Hospital Tenure The Georgia Baptist Health Care System is end- ing its tenure at GEorgia Baptist Meriwether Hospital and returning it to the community a more vibrant, more sophiscated facility. We (Georgia Baptist) thought your read- ers might be interested in the vast improvements made by Georgia Baptist in both the physical hospital as well as the community at large. In Matthew 25:14030, Christ challenges us to use our "talents" to the best of our abilities. Georgia Baptist Healthcare System passed this test in 1901 by healing Atlanta's less fortu- nate at Baptist Medical Cgnter. Over 90 years later, the health care system took the challenge to the far reaches of the state of geor- gia. Purchasing or leasing hospitals in Cumming, Sylvester and Warm Springs, the Board of Trustees used its gifts to rejuvenate these fledgling hospitals. We are proud of that, but we are more pleased to say that we have rejuvenated lives. Now, the Georgia Baptist Healthcare System is returning these hospitals to the communities. Reflecting upon the work done statewide brings' a sense of wonder. During its ten-year tenure of provid- ing affordable, accessible health services to all in need, the system has served over 100,000 patients. It created over $500 million in economi 9 irpact statewide. And, most importantly, iV answered Christ's call tO share our talent and, through this, His word. IN 1992, Georgia Baptist Healthcare System pur- chased Baptist North Hospital in Cumming. 200 admitting physicians. GEORGIA BAPTIST Meriwether Hospital became a reality in 1996. Immediate renovations upgraded the facility by providing state-of-the-art medical technology, bath- rooms to each of the 38 inpa- tient rooms and new fur- nishings. An emergency room physician group was brought in to staff the 24- hour a day emergency room. An 8,500-square-foot renovation in 2000 provid- ed patients from the three county area of service with an obstetric department and birthing suites, a mod- ern admitting department, a diagnostic center, a new CT scan, a respiratory ther- apy department and expanded laboratory equip- ment. Physician recruitment became paramount to hospital administration, bringing access to health care closer to each member of the community. In addi- tion, the hospital now boasts 22 physicians with special- ties from family practice to plastic surgery. Georgia BapHt Meriwether nurs- ing home also benefitted from the talents of the healthcare system as did Leadership Meriwether, a local organization provid- ing leadership skills to the area children. BY TAPPING THE citi- zens of the five-county area, Baptist Hospital of Worth County, purchased in was able to identify the crit- icar needs in the area. 59-bed hospital now boasts a 24-hour emergency room, state of-the-art operating equipment, and an intensive care unit. Three new clin- ics were established in out- lying areas to increase access to health care. The number of physicians., quadrupled since the hospi- R ............. ;1 g.,M,a was taken into the fold, hospital in once-rural while the numbef-s-fhff Forsyth County now serves five counties whose popu- lation increases daily. Baptist Medical Center, now Northside Hospital Forsyth, currently provides 24-hour emergency servic- es, a state-of-the-art reha- bilitation center called P.O.W.E.R. (Promotion of Wellness, Exercise and Rehab), 78 hospital beds, a cardiac intensive care unit and a medical office build- ing. A senior living center was also built to offer care to the aged and Baptist Life Flight aeromedical emer- gency helicopter found its home on this campus as well. As the hospital expand- ed, so did the pool of jobs offered. Not only was Georgia Baptist treating the local residents, it was employing them as well. The hospital now has a staff of over 2,000 with more than has increased to over 200. While the medical facil- ities flourished, the corn-: munity outreach grew as well. Georgia Baptist Healthcare System had a hand in placing nurses at elementary and middle "schools and creating both health and job fairs. Georgia Baptist Health Care System has taken enormous steps in ensuring that the underserved receive the healing power of God. The health care sys- tem has used its talents not just to heal but to teach as well. A foundation has been laid and now others must carry the torch, bringing their respective talents to the community. In this way, as in many others, they will extend the legacy of Georgia Baptist Health Care System long into the future and continue to bring glory to God.
