PENSACOLA, FLA. (Nov. 3, 2023) – The 47th annual Stepping Out in Style Fashion Show, presented by the Women’s Board of Baptist Health Care Foundation, raised more than $135,000 to support the senior adult space within the Behavioral Health Unit (BHU) at the new Baptist Hospital campus. The new state-of-the-art BHU opened in September.

Baptist is proud to offer this specialized area to meet the needs of older adults in our community. These patients require special consideration in mobility, more advanced medical care, lower stimulus environments and varying treatments to provide cognitive care. The senior adult social space offers comfortable furnishings that assist in preventing falls, allows therapeutic services in a welcoming, healing environment and enables patients to receive care in a space designed to make them feel at home.

The fashion show is the largest fundraiser for the Women’s Board of Baptist Health Care Foundation. Professional and local celebrity models showcased the latest fashions from Bluetique, Dillard’s, The Market and Mainly Shoes and The South Outfitters.
