Baptist Community Ministries (BCM) has been serving the Greater New Orleans Region for more than 22 years. But our service to the community actually began in 1926 with the opening of Southern Baptist Hospital. The hospital, a leading regional medical center, was located in the heart of Uptown New Orleans.
For several generations the hospital provided excellent healthcare to patients living in Orleans and surrounding parishes. Due to the changing healthcare landscape in New Orleans, a decision was made to sell the hospital in 1995. The proceeds from the sale were used to create BCM, a faith-based philanthropic foundation.
