Our mission statement of "Serving Humanity to Honor God" defines our ultimate purpose and that goes far beyond just services and facilities.
Methodist Healthcare System cares for the medically underserved of our community in a number of ways. Through providing care at our nine hospitals to everyone, regardless of ability to pay, and through the direct support of over 30 non-profit health and human services agencies serving the community, as well as through the ongoing support of the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County. As the city's second largest private employer with nearly 8,000 associates. Methodist Healthcare is able to reach beyond its 26 health care facilities and caregivers at its core.
The birth of the Methodist Healthcare System in 1995 provided the greatest mechanism to address the needs of the underserved in San Antonio and South Texas through the Methodist Healthcare Ministries. As one of the two co-owners of the Methodist Healthcare System, the Methodist Healthcare Ministries receives half of all profits generated by the hospital system. The result? An ever-growing ability to further the overall mission of "Serving Humanity to Honor God."
