Baptist Health Care (BHC) based in Pensacola, Fla., is the most recent member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network.

Mark Faulkner, president and CEO of Baptist Health Care, says, “Through this relationship, Baptist and Mayo Clinic share a desire to improve the delivery of health care throughout the region with high-quality, evidence-based medical care and treatment. Working together, we can treat an increasing number of patients closer to home.”

Baptist is the first organization in the region to join the Mayo Clinic Care Network. The organization remains the area’s only locally-owned, not-for-profit health care system, providing services across northwest Florida and south Alabama.

Southeast medical director of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, Stephen Lange, M.D., says, “Baptist is the established, premier health care provider in the region, and by working together through the care network we can accelerate innovative patient care even more. Through this collaboration, patients in the Pensacola area will have access to top providers at Baptist and also benefit from the leading expertise of specialists at Mayo Clinic.”

 

Baptist physician experts will be able to connect with those at Mayo Clinic on questions of complex medical care using an electronic consulting technique called eConsults. They will also have 24/7 access to Mayo-vetted medical information and guidelines through AskMayoExpert, a Web-based resource created for physicians and other health care providers.
