Baptist Earns Awards for Minority Partnership

Baptist recently won the 2018 Economic Development Growth award and the 2018 Corporate Supportive Hospital of the Year award for its partnership with BMA Transports Inc., a minority-owned surgical equipment repair firm. Shon Akiens, BMA Transports’ CEO, presented the awards to Baptist Memphis team members Geraldine Duncan and Matthew Dane.

“Baptist deserves to be recognized at the highest level for supporting small businesses,” said Akiens. “The joint venture with BMA developed core values for diversity movement and creating jobs.”
