Baptist Community Ministries (BCM) is a health conversion foundation committed to improving the physical, mental, spiritual and social lives of people living in the greater New Orleans region. From our founding as Southern Baptist Hospital in 1924, to the sale of two hospitals and our conversion to a foundation, our work touches lives in many ways - through grantmaking to nonprofit organizations and charities, and through direct services in settings such as hospitals, churches, and other community institutions. Specifically, BCM focuses grantmaking within four strategic zones - health, education, public safety, and governmental oversight. Through The McFarland Institute, BCM continues the spiritual mission once part of our legacy hospitals. Since our inception more than $140 million has been invested to transform the communities we serve.
