In The Community
Creating a Happier, Healthier Baton Rouge
Baton Rouge General was built for the community, by the community. Because
we are a local organization, we believe that it is part of our mission
to preserve and restore health, one person at a time. People here know
that we aren’t just their nearest hospital, we’re their caring
neighbors and friends who strive to make our region the best it can be.
Our employees go out into the community to educate, inform, and set a positive
example for those we serve. We do this through educational programs, support
groups, health screenings and special events.
Screenings & Special Events
Every year our team participates in several events for numerous health
causes, including walks for the American Heart Association, American Cancer
Society, March of Dimes, American Diabetes Association, and other similar
organizations. Our employees also volunteer their time for events such
as Life’s a Canvas, White Light Night, Fix Up Mid City, and the
Mayor’s Healthy BR Initiative.
We also organize several health screenings and awareness events of our
own. These events include screenings and information about heart health,
resources for expectant moms, cancer screenings, and free, consumer-friendly
lunch and learns. We care deeply about our community, and we’re
not shy about expressing it through volunteer work, supporting other healthy
organizations, and inviting the community to our hospital.
