About Us

Who We Are

Demonstrating the love of Christ by providing high quality medical and behavioral healthcare.

Baptist Community Health Services is a non-profit, federally-qualified multi-site community health center. Founded in 2014 in the culturally-rich Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans, the work of BCHS is focused on delivering high quality, affordable primary medical and behavioral healthcare to those who need it, regardless of income or insurance status.

Community Health Center

Using the community health center model, BCHS provides high-quality, comprehensive care to individuals and families in areas where economic, cultural, and geographic barriers can hinder access to affordable healthcare. Our primary care is integrated with our other services including mental health care, women's health, substance abuse services, and STD/STI testing and management, including HIV and Hepatitis C care. As a Community Health Center (CHC), BCHS is able to accept all insurance types, including Medicare, Medicaid and TriCare, as well as offer a generous Sliding Fee Scale application option to all patients to help mitigate financial burdens for those who qualify. No one is ever turned away due to inability to pay. The goal of our model is to help individuals and families get the care they need and deserve while reducing health disparities, improving the continuity of care, and demonstrating the love of Christ.

Evidence-Based Treatment

In order to provide the highest quality of care to our patients, our team of providers implement medical best practices by following evidence-based standards of care, which uses current best research evidence in coordination with each patient’s case, values, and preferences as well as the clinical expertise of the care team. Evidence-based treatment offers sound scientific guidelines for healthcare providers to work from as they make decisions regarding appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
