Faith on the Front Lines:
The Importance of Faith-Based Care

On Tuesday, October 11, please join us for Faith & Medicine at the River Oaks Country Club from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The theme of this year’s luncheon is Faith on the Front Lines. Guests will have the opportunity to hear stories from the past two years that shine a light on how faith both inspired our front-line care providers and played a role in helping them carry out the patient-focused mission of our hospital.

Houston Methodist opened its doors in 1919 as a faith-based institution. Caring for the human mind and spirit is as much a part of our culture as treating physical illness and disease. With a dedicated interdisciplinary team of chaplains and staff available around the clock to support the spiritual, emotional and medical needs of our patients and their loved ones, Houston Methodist is committed to healing the whole person. The global pandemic and tumultuous world events have made this more challenging and more important.

Proceeds for this event will benefit innovations in chaplaincy so that patients and their loved ones have 24/7 access to chaplains at all hospital locations. They will also target coordinated research efforts for transforming spiritual care support led by both physicians and chaplains, setting Houston Methodist apart in the field.

This event is chaired by Libbie Nelson, Lou Houser and Wendy Moreland.
