Our similarities and differences may include race, gender, class, native language, ethnic origin, physical ability, age, religion, sexual orientation, professional experience, personal preferences and work style.

We value our diversity. These similarities and differences will be affirmed and respected as we serve all of our patients, customers, families and coworkers.

Commitment to Patient Safety

At Methodist, we’re committed to your safety – and you can help us keep you safe, too. We encourage you to watch the Patient Safety and Medication History programs. These education programs will inform you on what you can do before, during and after your hospital stay to keep yourself safe and keep your health care provider informed about your medication history.  

Commitment to Community 

Since the day Methodist Hospital was chartered in 1891, service to our community has been a priority. Charitable care, health education, outreach to the underserved, and community-centered events and activities have been central to our mission.
