Baptist Health Care (BHC) held a virtual groundbreaking event for the construction of its new health campus Friday. The event was streamed via Facebook Live and YouTube. The event was held 71 years to the day of the groundbreaking of BHC’s flagship facility, Baptist Hospital.

The construction of a new campus was announced in June 2019. Since that time, preliminary work has been ongoing including finalization of financing, selection of construction partners, initial site preparation and design planning. Brasfield & Gorrie serves as general contractor. Gresham Smith is the architectural firm responsible for design, Meadows & Ohly is program manager, and Smith Seckman and Reid serves as equipment and technology planner. Baptist is committed to engaging local, minority, woman, and veteran-owned companies and vendors in this transformational project so that the benefits of this investment can be felt throughout the community. Construction is expected to be completed in 2023.
