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, and our employees also volunteer their time for events such as Holiday Lights, 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.
