On its beautiful campus located just four miles west of downtown Birmingham’s business district, Princeton Baptist Medical Center has been a ministry of the Birmingham Baptist Association since 1922. Princeton Baptist Medical Center draws its primary market share from western Jefferson County. Princeton has a total of 505 licensed beds with 54 ICU/Step-down beds, and a full service emergency department. Four medical office buildings on the Princeton Baptist campus provide patients with access to excellent primary care physicians and specialists.
PRINCETON BAPTIST MEDICAL CENTER’S STRENGTHS:
EXPANSION PROJECT: Princeton recently completed and opened a $57 million expansion project which involves the renovation of 60,000 square feet of existing space (including a complete renovation of the hospital’s 16 operating rooms) and the addition of 90,000 square feet of new space.
NURSING CARE: Compassionate bedside nursing and an active involvement with nurse education have been strengths since 1922. Princeton has clinical affiliation agreements with many Nursing Education programs in the Birmingham area.
PHYSICIAN EXPERTISE: The Princeton Baptist medical staff is a diverse staff of physicians who are committed to continuous learning. Princeton is home to nationally well-respected residency programs in Pathology, Radiology, Medicine, Surgery and Transitional Year. This active intellectual environment contributes to Princeton’s earned reputation for state-of-the-art care.
A TEACHING ENVIRONMENT: Princeton Baptist is a training site for many healthcare programs other than nursing and medical care. One particularly special teaching relationship is with the Auburn School of Pharmacy. We believe this teaching relationship with Auburn helps our physicians and our nurses to better ensure that our patients receive the correct medication at the right time and in the right amount.
TECHNICAL EXPERTISE: Princeton Baptist is a demonstration site for General Electric diagnostic imaging. In other words, General Electric medical brings prospective clients to Princeton to show how excellent equipment in the hands of well-trained staff and physicians can improve both patient diagnosis and efficiency.
HOLISTIC APPROACH TO PATIENT CARE: Most importantly, we at Princeton Baptist consider our healthcare services as a calling to ministry. Our chaplains, our medical staff, and our associates approach patient care as an opportunity for service.
