More Information

Missouri Baptist Medical Center, an acute care hospital in St. Louis County, offers a full continuum of medical and surgical services, including heart care, cancer care, and women's and infants' services. The hospital has a 24-hour adult emergency department and cares for pediatric patients at a separate emergency department in collaboration with St. Louis Children's Hospital.

In 2016, Missouri Baptist was named a Magnet-- hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). The prestigious designation is the highest credential a healthcare organization can receive for nursing excellence and quality patient care. Missouri Baptist is the first hospital in St. Louis County to achieve this recognition, which has been accomplished by less than 7 percent of hospitals nationwide. Additionally, U.S. News & World Report ranked the hospital #2 in the St. Louis metro area.

Missouri Baptist Medical Center is a member of BJC HealthCare, one of the nation's largest nonprofit healthcare organizations.

Respiratory team members provide treatment and therapy for infants and adults, perform innovative procedures (mechanical and noninvasive ventilation, nitric oxide delivery, arterial blood gas sampling, pulmonary function testing), administer patient-focused and therapist-driven order sets and serve as Rapid Response Team members responding swiftly to ""trigger"" symptoms without waiting for full-blown cardiac arrest. The Respiratory Department offers a clinical ladder program to recognize and reward therapists who strive for high quality patient care and demonstrate commitment to respiratory care.
