History

Established in 1976, the Women’s Board of Baptist Health Care Foundation has provided consistent support for the community through its commitment to health care initiatives. From the first meeting chaired by President Jane Pace with 25 ladies in attendance to today’s organization consisting of over 175 members, the Women’s Board has raised more than $2 million in support of various health care programs. Through the efforts of this organization consisting of dedicated volunteers, the quality of health care has been improved for the entire community.

These dedicated women sponsor the annual Stepping Out in Style Fashion Show, which has become the premiere fashion event for the area. The group also holds various smaller fundraisers throughout the year.

The Women’s Board has raised funds for programs including Cancer, Heart and Vascular, Women’s Health, the Children’s Center at Lakeview, a Palliative Care suite at Baptist Hospital and much more.

Through the combined efforts of hundreds of women performing thousands of hours of volunteer service over a period of time spanning more than 40 years, the people of Northwest Florida and South Alabama have had access to better health care, and as a result, a better quality of life.
