LA GRANGE, Ky. (Jan. 10, 2017) — Baptist Health La Grange and the Baptist Health Foundation last month received a $1 million donation from the Rawlings Foundation to use towards the hospital’s recent Women’s Center construction project. This is the largest donation in the history of Baptist Health La Grange.

“Grateful seems like an understatement for this level of generosity,” said Chris Roty, President ofBaptist Health La Grange. “We are blessed to have someone as generous as George Rawlings in our community. In honor of this gift, it will be our pleasure to rename the center the George and Beverly Rawlings Women’s Center.”

The hospital’s $2.5 million Women’s Center renovation is scheduled for completion in May 2017. It will offer an expanded nursery, two new OB triage rooms for monitoring expectant mothers, all-private post-partum rooms and Labor/Delivery suites with updated furnishings and décor, new operating room for C-section procedures, dedicated lactation room and expanded family waiting areas.
