Promote Healing

Elevating the experience of every patient at Houston Methodist.

We believe superior medical care incorporates healing elements that feed the human spirit. From chaplaincy education to arts integration to nursing excellence, we seek to enhance programs that promote a culture of hope and healing.

Crowning Achievement in Nursing

World-class care has been a hallmark of the Houston Methodist patient experience throughout our nearly 100-year history. This commitment to excellence begins with our nurses. Working on the frontlines of health care with poise, skill and compassion, the approximately 5,200 nurses in our hospitals are at the heart of our mission to keep the patient at the center of all we do. An anonymous contributor has generously established $250,000 endowments in support of nursing excellence at six Houston Methodist community hospitals, and we are committed to building those endowments to $1 million each. Hospital leadership along with the leader of nursing at each community hospital will decide how best to direct these funds to support nurses at the hospital.

Spiritual Care

Caring for the human spirit is as much a part of our goals and culture as treating patients for illness. Houston Methodist has identified the vital connection between faith and medicine, and provides multiple spiritual care programs throughout the system.

Arts and Medicine

Medical care is more effective in environments that promote healing. The only center of its kind in the country, Center for Performing Arts Medicine (CPAM) brings the healing power of arts to Houston Methodist patients. Support of CPAM provides therapy utilizing the arts in clinical patient care and research to harness the broadest potential of the arts in therapy, rehabilitation and human performance.

Patient Navigation

These health care specialists guide patients through all aspects of their hospital experience. Patient navigators help patients understand their diagnosis and treatment plan and perform follow-ups with patients to ensure compliance with appointments and medication. Support of this program has led to the expansion of this service throughout our hospital system.


Community Hospitals


Our nurses are the clinical backbone of the hospital. Nursing is practiced expertly and compassionately by professionals committed to the complex needs of patients and their families. As the medical environment expands, nurses are required to continually enhance and strengthen their knowledge and skills in today’s technologically-advanced, highly complex health care environment.

Community Hospitals

Houston Methodist’s expansive vision for the future is not limited to the patient care, research and education that occurs at our Texas Medical Center campus. We are proud to provide exceptional medical care at our locations throughout the greater Houston area—including specialty care, clinical trials and more. Gifts may support the excellence fund at each of the hospitals or a specific program or area.
