Methodist Healthcare Nurses make Methodist Healthcare the most preferred healthcare provider in the San Antonio area

Wanda Gibbons, Interim Chief Nursing Executive, Methodist Healthcare System

Nurses join the nursing profession to give back to the community one patient at a time. It’s a decision I have made myself, and one that I fully respect. I and other Methodist Healthcare leaders believe that you—our nurses at the bedside— are the key to our ongoing efforts to continually improve our high standards of quality care for our patients. We know that you go above and beyond each day to ensure a quality, comfortable healing experience for our patients. Nurses play a major role in making Methodist Healthcare the most preferred healthcare provider in the San Antonio area. That’s something to be proud of.

You are the healthcare experts. That is why behind the scenes, our bedside nurses are also engaged in initiatives to promote patient safety, programs for improving quality and patient satisfaction, and adopting new technologies designed to enhance patient care. Each of you know well our nursing values of CARING: Compassion, Accountable, Respect, Integrity, Nurturing and Giving. And you are fully aware that Methodist Healthcare’s vision is that our compassionate and caring professional team of nurses and staff is fully engaged in proudly fulfilling our mission of “Serving Humanity to Honor God.”

Methodist Healthcare’s leadership strives to support its nurses in an evolving number of ways in order to make our facilities safe and rewarding work environments. We hope you know that we are here for you. Communication is key to a healthy work environment so we be sure to get your updates on our Intranet with “The Central Line: MHS Nursing News.”

If you are a student or someone else in the community who believes you have what it takes to join our staff, get started at www.JoinMethodist.com. If you are a nurse who is already part of our Methodist Healthcare family, I want to thank you for all that you do to help us create an ever-improving culture of Methodist Excellence.

Sincerely,
Wanda Gibbons, Interim Chief Nursing Executive, Methodist Healthcare System
