Heart of the Community

Methodist Heart of the Community

The Methodist Heart of the Community Initiative is designed to improve the cardio health of the communities that we serve through heart disease education and prevention.

For decades, Methodist Health System has had a heart for your heart care. A recent report from the National Research Corporation shows why our focus on heart health is more important than ever.

Among people in the communities served by Methodist, more than 30 percent are at risk for high cholesterol and more than 40 percent for high blood pressure. That puts a significant number of our colleagues, neighbors, friends, and family in the group of people in danger of developing heart disease – the nation’s No. 1 killer of both men and women.

Here are just some of the ways we're reaching out to the community:
