Serving Our Communities

Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is committed to giving back to the communities it serves. Embracing community outreach, education, research, charity care and other efforts to improve the overall health of our community would not be possible without the support of our generous donors.  

As a non-profit organization, we depend on philanthropy to support our mission of improving health, training new leaders in health care, advancing research, and serving as the premier health system in our region.  

Here are just a few of the outreach programs and services we offer to the community and our patients: 

BeInvolved is an online resource that welcomes community members to learn more about hundreds of clinical trials and studies at Wake Forest Baptist. 

Center for Worker Health promotes worker and occupational health research and practice, creating workplace solutions that are beneficial for employers, workers and their families. 

DEAC Clinic, (Delivering Equal Access to Care) is a free health clinic, developed by Wake Forest School of Medicine students, that provides routine primary health care to the local underserved community, and specialty care and testing when needed.  

Downtown Health Plaza is a full-service outpatient medical clinic subsidized by Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and serves many of Forsyth County’s uninsured and underinsured residents.  

Mobile Health Clinic, in collaboration with several community partners, strives to help meet the medical needs of the community through improved access to care and coordination of care for underserved populations. 

Support, Counseling and Continuing Care programs enable us to care for our patients and their families long after they have left the hospital.
