Baptist Health Richmond offers a diverse range of on-going and project-related volunteer opportunities. Some people volunteer every week and others spend their time working on a specific project or event. Some interact with patients, offer information and directions to hospital visitors, escort patients to appointments, or work in the gift shop, while others serve on the board of directors, organize the hospital’s annual charity ball, or help with the hospital’s many community programs and events.

Baptist Health Richmond is a fully accredited, non-profit 501 (c) (3) hospital located in Richmond, Kentucky. Licensed for 105 beds, we are an acute care facility that delivers all primary and extensive secondary level health care services. We are staffed by more than 70 physicians, who provide care in 23 specialty areas.
Compassion has guided us from the very beginning. More than 120 years ago, a small group of women established a 10-bed infirmary in Richmond, Kentucky – staffed entirely by volunteers – to meet the healthcare needs of the growing population. The little hospital was named after one of the group’s founders, Pattie Amelia Field Clay, who had fallen ill and died while caring for the sick. In her memory, her husband, Brutus Clay, donated a two-story brick cottage to house the small infirmary.

highly skilled nurses, our Women’s Care Center offers obstetrics and birthing
services, gynecology, breast imaging and intervention, and education. Around 800 babies are born here every
year. Each newborn is protected by a state of the art infant security
system. Our two maternity wings house birthing suites, a newborn nursery,
postpartum rooms, and waiting areas. Renovation will result in creation of two
large C Section prep and recovery areas, new surgical suites, renovating the
nursery, updating birthing and postpartum rooms, and brightening public areas.
We offer diagnostic and outpatient services such as digital mammography,
stereotactic breast biopsy, and sentinel node biopsy; as well as bone
densitrometry, laser and laparoscopic surgeries, and non-surgical alternatives.
Because we emphasize establishing and maintaining healthy lifestyles, we offer
many free screenings and health awareness, prevention and education programs
throughout the year.
Health Richmond’s surgical services include vascular, neurological, orthopedic
(including spine), ophthalmic, gynecological, urological, endoscopic, obstetric
and general surgery. Our surgeons are skilled in the use of progressive
techniques and instrumentation. Our surgical teams create a climate
conducive to outstanding surgical results and provide patients with customized
plans of care developed with an appreciation of each individual’s
uniqueness. The hospital houses five operating rooms, two (soon to be
three) endoscopy suites and one cystoscopy room where 1,097 inpatient surgeries
and 5,684 outpatient surgeries were performed last year. Our surgery
department’s goals are to achieve 100% on all HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer
Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) quality measures and to place
in the top 1% of hospitals in patient satisfaction.
Our new Mammography Suite offers breast tomosynthesis, or 3D mammography, allowing radiologists to examine the tissue layer by layer in fine detail to detect even the most subtle early signs of cancer. Should further diagnostics or treatment be needed, additional testing and procedural equipment is located within the suite. At our Sleep Disorders Center, board-certified sleep specialists identify and treat the causes of sleep disorders that could lead to diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Another area of excellence is our Cardiac Rehabilitation Team. This team individualizes education and exercise training to encourage healthy behavior and wellness.
