BJC Healthcare was created in 1993 when Barnes-Jewish, Inc. merged with Christian Health Services with the objective of creating a system consisting of a great urban teaching facility and a network of suburban community hospitals. The two nationally recognized teaching hospitals they have – Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital are both allied with Washington University School of Medicine.
BJC Healthcare is presently providing healthcare to the areas of St. Louis, Southern Illinois, as well as Mid Missouri Regions. The health care they provide are as follows:
- Primary care
- Inpatient and outpatient care
- Community health and wellness
- Workplace health
- Home health
- Community mental health
- Long-term care
The benefit programs they have for the communities are what gives them pride in what they do. They also have programs for residents in the area they are in who are experiencing a medical tragedy but without health insurance. They provide care and resources for teen parents. BJC Healthcare also takes pride in the programs they have for women who do not have access to maintenance and preventative care. One of the activities they also take pride in is their charity care and ongoing education for future health practitioners like doctors and nurses.
