The Grand Gala on March 16 was the largest and most impactful event in the history of Baptist Health – not only in the number of supporters and guests in attendance, but also in philanthropic impact: Through the generosity of you and nearly 2,000 others, the Gala raised more than $6.7 million, all to benefit the patients and families we are privileged to serve.
Baptist Health has a deep commitment to serving the South Florida community. And in a challenging healthcare environment, now, more than ever, the philanthropic support of donors like you is vital to our ability to pursue our mission of providing charity care and community service, which totaled more than $300 million in 2018 alone.
