A Caring Community Partner
Baylor Orthopedic and Spine Hospital at Arlington is a unique facility specializing in comprehensive outpatient and inpatient treatment of orthopedic and spine disorders. The newly expanded hospital boasts 10 operating rooms, a full-service ER, complete diagnostic imaging capabilities and on-site physical therapy, rehab and a new Pain Management Center.
Baylor Arlington prides itself on helping its patients get back to enjoying life. But their commitment to caring goes beyond the unsurpassed medical care it provides to its patients. The hospital is proud to partner with organizations across the Arlington community and beyond to provide meaningful programs and events that enhance the culture, education and health of the communities where its patients live and work.
“At our core, we’re a hospital that cares deeply about helping people live the most healthy, active and complete lives they can,” said Allan Beck, CEO of Baylor Arlington. “This means much more to us than providing world-class orthopedic and spine care: It means getting involved in causes and with organizations that enrich the lives of people in our neighborhood, and that help make this area a great place to live and work.”
Baylor Arlington focuses its giving efforts in several areas:
- Charity Care
- Cultural and Community Enrichment
- Education and Youth Services
- Medical Outreach and Wellness
Baylor Arlington’s Charity Care program provides financial assistance for medical procedures and services for patients meeting certain financial need criteria. This support ranges from help with large insurance deductibles, copays and premiums, to assistance with everyday living expenses related to a patient’s treatment. Medical financial support is based on a patient’s need, insurance coverage and ability to pay, among other factors. More information is available at www.baylorarlington.com/finance-options/.
The hospital also extends its care for community by working with organizations to provide cultural enrichment, education, medical outreach and other services. Baylor Arlington’s title sponsorship of the 2016 and 2017 Levitt Pavilion concert seasons is a great example of how the hospital has become a valuable community partner and a champion for the arts, helping present more than 50 free outdoor concerts for music fans of all ages. Similarly, Baylor Arlington partners with The LOT Downtown in Mansfield to provide another unique place for people to come together to enjoy life through the arts through free, family-friendly entertainment including movies, music and theater productions.
Another key community partnership includes the River Legacy Science Center, which provides environmental education programs and events for Arlington families. Baylor Arlington has been a proud partner in the Science Center’s efforts to teach children about science and nature. Hospital employees also have embraced the partnership by getting involved in various fundraisers and events including the Cardboard Boat Regatta and Clay Shooting Tournament.
Beyond cultural and education enrichment programs, Baylor Arlington has touched countless lives through its commitment to education and youth services, including programming at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Arlington, Mansfield ISD Education Foundation and Salvation Army’s Youth Education Town. Through support from Baylor Arlington and other sponsors, these organizations have provided needed programs to support the education and personal development of youth from across the Arlington area.
Finally, Baylor Arlington partners with several organizations to support medical research, outreach and wellness programs both in the local community and globally. Partners include the Arthritis Foundation, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, Faith in Practice, Eagle Condor Humanitarian and Canine Companions for Independence. Through support of these programs, the hospital extends the impact of its industry-leading medical expertise and care well beyond its own walls.
The Arlington community is fortunate to have Baylor Arlington as an active, caring neighborhood partner. Beyond its unsurpassed medical care, the hospital plays a critical role in helping valuable organizations develop and continue programming that helps make Arlington a strong, vibrant community.
