BayCare’s New ‘Report to the Community’ Showcases 2022 Achievements
In 2022, BayCare celebrated its 25th year as a health system and looked to the future with optimism as it emerged from the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic, welcomed a new president/CEO, built new facilities, and won national and regional recognition for its clinical excellence and exceptional workplace culture.
The details are provided in BayCare’s 2022 Report to the Community, a calendar-year look back at the challenges and achievements of Tampa Bay and West Central Florida’s largest not-for-profit health care system, with more than 29,000 team members, 16 hospitals and hundreds of other care locations.
The 2022 report was released today and is being shared with the public, as it is every year, at BayCare.org/AnnualReport.
Visitors to the website can read about:
- BayCare’s growth in 2022, with two new hospitals under construction, improvements at other hospitals, and expansion into Manatee County, a new market area for BayCare.
- How our clinical leaders and physicians worked diligently, even during the pandemic, on developing clinical pathways to ensure that BayCare patients get exceptional care, delivered with compassion, consistency and efficiency.
- Rapid expansion of BayCare’s behavioral health treatment programs to reach individuals and communities when and where they need us most.
- BayCare’s work to spell out career paths leading from entry-level jobs to satisfying careers for non-college bound high school students seeking jobs in health care after graduation.
- BayCare’s efforts around food insecurity, including its partnership with Feeding Tampa Bay – a partnership that now helps support “Feeding Minds” food pantries in 42 public schools.
The work to address hunger is part of the $492 million in community benefit BayCare provided during 2022, which includes care of patients with little or no insurance and uncompensated services provided to the community.
This year’s annual report also tells heart-warming stories about some BayCare team members who went above and beyond their normal duties in 2022 to help individuals in need.
