In fiscal year 2012, Baylor provided more than $539 million in community benefit (as reported to the Texas Department of State Health Services).
We also maintain one of only two Level 1 Trauma Centers in Dallas, one of the largest emergency departments in the nation. Designed to accommodate more than 100,000 critically injured patients annually, the 78,000-square-foot facility provides care for 40 percent of the serious trauma cases in the area.
Baylor also provides primary care to the uninsured through several different models including nine faith-based clinics throughout North Texas. One, in downtown Dallas, proved in a 2010 study to reduce emergency department visits by 34 percent and inpatient hospital admissions by nearly 50 percent.
In 2010, the Baylor Diabetes Health and Wellness Institute opened in one of the most underserved areas of Dallas. The unique, $15-million project was brought to life through a public/private partnership between Baylor and the City of Dallas in a ZIP code where residents are three-times more likely to die from diabetes compared to those living in Dallas as a whole.
The institute’s mission is to save lives through improved diabetes care, education and research and its innovative medical-home model is changing the role hospitals play in communities.↑ Back to Top
