Who am I

My name is Dr. Naomi Jean-Baptiste.

I am a board-certified emergency medicine physician; I am a frontline provider.

I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Duke University and obtained my Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree from Duke University School of Medicine. I then moved to New York City where I completed a residency program in Emergency Medicine at NewYork Presbyterian.

I am a mother and a wife in addition to being a healthcare provider. I have been working in the frontlines of Emergency Medicine for almost 10 years.
During this period, I have served in leadership roles among which being the Medical Director of an Emergency Department. Currently, I am the Co-Chair of the Provider Wellbeing Committee at my hospital.

Why Hope4Med?

Healthcare workers can sometimes become so absorbed with their profession that it becomes the core of the their universe. The downside to this is that when something negative happens to that core the effects can be devastating.

To have triumphs and tribulations is human, and healthcare workers are human. Outside of the work environment, they are also sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, fathers, mothers, and friends.

The goal of this company is to provide a convenient, private, and confidential outlet that passes no judgment and helps guide the healthcare worker through times of struggle. Knowing they never have to feel lonely again will hopefully prevent healthcare workers from getting to a point of desperation where irreversible decisions are made, and we are all left to deal with the consequences.
