BJC HealthCare is one of the largest nonprofit healthcare organizations in the United States, delivering services to residents primarily in the greater St. Louis, southern Illinois and mid-Missouri regions. With 26,000 employees and net revenues of $2.6 billion, BJC serves urban, suburban and rural communities through its 13 hospitals and multiple outpatient community health locations. Services include inpatient and outpatient care, primary care, community health and wellness, workplace health, home health, rehabilitation, behavioral health, long-term care and hospice.
BJC's roots trace back to the 1992 affiliation of two St. Louis hospitals, Barnes Hospital and The Jewish Hospital of St. Louis. Both were nationally recognized hospitals affiliated with Washington University School of Medicine. The affiliated organization merged in June 1993 with Christian Health Services, a network of suburban and rural healthcare facilities. The combined organization was named BJC Health System. In 1994, Missouri Baptist Medical Center and St. Louis Children’s Hospital joined the organization, known today as BJC HealthCare.
BJC is committed to being among the best healthcare organizations in the nation by offering superior care to our patients and their families. While BJC’s size is a strength, the quality of care and breadth of services we offer are our most important attributes.
BJC includes some of the most well-respected teaching institutions, community medical centers and rural hospitals in the country. Their affiliation with BJC signals a pact and a promise to meet the healthcare needs and exceed the expectations of the communities they serve. In addition, all of BJC’s hospitals have unique features that set them apart, such as superior clinical outcomes, convenient access, personalized service, medical research and advanced technology.
BJC takes seriously its commitment to meet the healthcare needs of the communities it serves. As part of this commitment, BJC is focused on improving and encouraging “health literacy” in its communities and among its employees. Health literacy means knowing how to foster health and prevent disease and taking the appropriate actions to do so. Through BJC Community Health Literacy Services, BJC reaches out to community members in their schools, workplace settings and places of worship.
