What is Baptist Medical Group?

Many people I’ve spoken to lately are asking, “What is Baptist Medical Group and BMG?” They also want to know how these doctors are affiliated with Baptist Memorial Health Care and our Baptist Memorial hospitals in the Mid-South. The answer is simple. Baptist Medical Group, or BMG as we call it, is a large multi-specialty group practice of physicians that was formed as a wholly owned subsidiary of Baptist Memorial Health Care.  BMG was designed with specific intent to truly partner with physicians in a manner that is unique in today’s health care.

Baptist Medical Group is one of the largest not-for-profit physician group practices in the region with more than 500 providers representing 43 specialties in West Tennessee, East Arkansas and North Mississippi. BMG has brought together some of the areas most talented primary care and specialist physicians across the region to form what is clearly a premier medical group practice . As part of joining BMG, physicians are able to maintain their clinical autonomy yet have the advantage of BMG to provide resources and management in order to grow, recruit & expand services.

Baptist Medical Group is governed by a board of physicians and Baptist senior leadership representing all of the various specialties and geographical market areas within Baptist Memorial Health Care.  This board provides guidance and direction as it relates to quality initiatives, patient care and services, strategic planning and community outreach.

Baptist Medical Group is changing the face of health care in the Mid-South. We invite you to learn more about how we are meeting our community’s health care needs now and in the future. For more information, visit BaptistDoctors.org, or call 901-227-DOCS.
