Your Career. Made Better.

Missouri Baptist Medical Center, an acute care hospital in St. Louis County, offers a full continuum of medical and surgical services, including heart care, cancer care, and women’s and infants’ services. The hospital has a 24-hour adult emergency department and cares for pediatric patients at a separate emergency department in collaboration with St. Louis Children’s Hospital.

In 2016, Missouri Baptist was named a Magnet® hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). The prestigious designation is the highest credential a healthcare organization can receive for nursing excellence and quality patient care. Missouri Baptist is the first hospital in St. Louis County to achieve this recognition, which has been accomplished by less than 7 percent of hospitals nationwide. Additionally, U.S. News & World Report ranked the hospital #2 in the St. Louis metro area.

Missouri Baptist Medical Center is a member of BJC HealthCare, one of the nation’s largest nonprofit healthcare organizations.

 

Our Speech Therapy Department includes two full-time, and three PRN speech-language pathologists. On the acute inpatient units, the focus is on diagnostic procedures including modified barium swallow studies and fiber optic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES).  On the inpatient rehabilitation and outpatient units, diagnostic and treatment focus is more diverse and includes intervention for disorders: voice, speech, language, cognitive and swallowing. Other areas of emphasis are coordinated services between Respiratory and Speech Therapy for patients on mechanical ventilated support and neurological patients undergoing rehabilitation.
