Heart of Faith Fund

Giving Hearts Save Lives

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Arkansas – but Baptist Health and Baptist Health Foundation are working to change that. Through gifts to the programs below, you can help those battling a cardiac condition in your community receive the care they need.

Baptist Health Heart Failure and Transplant Institute

One of the most comprehensive heart transplant centers in the country, the renowned Baptist Health Heart Failure and Transplant Institute has provided unmatched, seamless care for patients with advanced heart failure for more than 30 years.

No other hospital in our state can offer this level of care.

We are the only adult heart transplant center in Arkansas. Our renowned physicians have performed nearly 300 transplants, and are often at the forefront of bringing new, innovative cardiac surgeries and treatments to the state. Some of the Institute’s most notable accomplishments include:

  • Performing the first heart transplant in Arkansas in 1989
  • Implanting the first HeartMate III left-ventricular-assist device (LVAD) in 1999
  • Implanting the state’s first Total Artificial Heart in 2017

Heart of Faith Fund

The Heart of Faith Fund supports patients who are facing heart failure, need a Left Ventricular Assisted Device (LVAD) or need a heart transplant. You can help those who are not able to afford life-extending medical services, travel and hotel expenses, equipment vital to their treatment, prescriptions and other medical or non-medical needs related to receiving a heart or LVAD.

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.
Proverbs 4:23
