PENSACOLA, Fla. (Nov. 17, 2022) – Amit Gupta, M.D., his wife, Shruti, and their family have made a major gift to support the new Baptist Hospital campus, scheduled to open fall 2023. The Foundation will name the diagnostic imaging center in honor of Dr. Gupta’s parents, Girish S. and Vimu G. Gupta.

While Dr. Gupta is not an employee of Baptist Hospital, he has served as an independent member of its medical staff since 1997.

“The people at Baptist are fabulous – the nurses and the technologists, they’re amazing people,” Dr. Gupta said. “We help so many people. It’s been very rewarding to me. Baptist has afforded me to work with these patients, and we felt like it was time to give back. Being in that new location is going to help us take care of even more people.”

The Guptas’ compassion and desire to help others stems from their Indian culture and strong family values. Growing up they learned that giving back is essential and said they are grateful to their parents for teaching them the value of selflessness. They hope their gift inspires others to give.

“We are extremely grateful for the generosity of Dr. Gupta and his family, as well as for their shared vision to serve our community,” Baptist Health Care President and CEO Mark Faulkner said. “We are blessed with Dr. Gupta’s leadership as a physician and now for this transformational family gift.”
