Methodist Health System Celebrating 125 Years of Care

Published: Oct. 31, 2016

When the Methodist Episcopal Hospital and Deaconess Home Association of Omaha opened on May 28, 1891, at 20th and Harney Streets, the first patients traveled only as far as their feet or a horse-drawn carriage could take them.

Today, patients travel to Methodist Health System facilities from around the world, drawn to three hospitals and 21 clinics by the specialists, physicians and caregivers recognized as leaders in their fields, and by award-winning services including primary care and wellness, surgery, cancer care, cardiac care, bariatrics, neurology, orthopedics, women’s health and the care of older adults.

That’s a long way to come in 125 years.
