Why My Heart Belongs to Baptist


"I have had two surgeries there -- one in March with the robot, the other laparoscopic to remove the gallbladder. The employees were very, very nice and took great care of me!!!!”

– Leia Wilkey of Paducah


"My husband had a heart attack in March 2009. Baptist communicated with the ambulance and he was wheeled right into the cath lab. They knew the problem before he got there, and they were able to fix the blockage immediately. My heart belongs to Baptist!

– Tammy Harmon Beard of
Crittenden County



"Four years ago at 72, I suffered a heart attack. I drove myself to the hospital and almost immediately passed out. My arteries were almost completely blocked. Dr. Carl Johnson performed open heart surgery (four by-passes) and saved my life.
Two days after surgery, I went into cardiac arrest, and the ICU team brought me back.That is why, literally, my heart belongs to Baptist.”

– Jerry Burnett of Paducah 



"Since I was a little girl, I remember so much about Baptist Health Paducah. I remember visiting my Dad after he had surgery when I was only 4. My mother was at Baptist, when she had her heart surgery after I was an adult. The special times were when I was an adult. The special times were when I gave birth to my three children at Baptist, and my daughter gave birth to two of my wonderful grandchildren. My first son had problems after his birth, and Baptist knew just what to do! He is now 34 years old and a wonderful, healthy Dad himself. Thank you, Baptist, for always being there for me and my family!!!"

– Vanessa Miller Clark of Paducah
