Houston Methodist began laying a foundation for health care excellence nearly 100 years ago. As Houston grew, our footprint expanded as well, and today we continue to provide a complete array of Houston Methodist services around the city. Our new hospital in The Woodlands brings us to seven community hospitals to complement our flagship hospital in the Texas Medical Center, giving our patients access to health care no matter where they live. As we head toward our 100th anniversary in 2019, we also are carrying out our ‘Vision for the Second Century,’ which is progressive and patient-focused. We evolved into a leading academic medical center in just a few short years; and, with this added foundation, we set an even higher standard in the medical world through our commitment to unparalleled safety, quality, service and innovation. These words shape all we do, and ensure that our every action ultimately benefits our patients. The infrastructure we continue to create is designed to serve our patients in the best way possible. This includes our focus on translational research, which is geared toward moving promising new treatments to patients faster and more economically. As we continue to grow and evolve, we must aim for and achieve ever more ambitious goals in order to remain among the most preeminent hospital systems in the world. Just as forward-thinking philanthropists helped mold Houston Methodist’s first 100 years, your commitment and dedication will be incredibly important as we move into our second century of patient care, research and education. On behalf of the Houston Methodist family, we are honored to be partners with an outstanding philanthropic community. Your past generosity has forged our trail as medical pioneers. Your continuing faith in our future ensures that many of tomorrow’s medical miracles and milestones will be made possible – in years rather than decades – by work done at Houston Methodist. MARC L.
