"This new office allows us to combine our resources, which strengthens operational and service excellence, drives efficiencies and enhances the patient experience, which is our top priority," said Chris Anderson, vice president of Mississippi operations for Baptist Memorial Health Care. "Our hospitals care for some of the sickest and most under-served communities in the country, and we must do everything we can to ensure we remain part of these communities for years to come."
