Partners in Health

Partners in Health is a giving society of committed individuals who understand the importance of having a comprehensive hospital in the center of their community.

As a not-for-profit organization, Methodist Hospital relies on charitable contributions to keep the hospital at the forefront of medical excellence. Annual donations help strengthen the quality of life for our patients, their families, and their loved ones.

By making a contribution to the Methodist Hospital Foundation and joining Partners in Health, you support the growth of your local hospital while touching, and saving, the lives of people in our community. Your generosity is an investment in the skilled and compassionate care that is the hallmark of Methodist Hospital.

Enhancing Life in Our Community

Over the years, the inspirational generosity of our donors has transformed the hospital in the following ways:

  • North and Berger Patient Towers
  • Technology including CT scanners, catheterization and bi-plane machines for cardiac and stroke patients, and a Linear Accelerator for advanced cancer treatment
  • Health education classes and clinics for seniors, expectant mothers, and cancer patients and their families
  • Maternal Child Center and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
  • Rehabilitation Facilities

Methodist Hospital stands ready to meet today's healthcare challenges with additions and enhancements that will transform the hospital. The future of healthcare depends on ongoing charitable support from the community.
