Community Involvement

Reaching Out & Giving Back

We are here for community whenever and whenever they need us. Our community programs and initiatives provide us with an opportunity to educate local residents about health and wellness and connect them to services they may not have had access to before. Our current initiatives include:

  • Faith Community Nursing. Through local churches, Methodist provides education and health outreach, including flu shots and biometric screenings.
  • Mobile mammography. In collaboration with Susan G. Komen® Dallas County, Methodist’s mobile mammography unit brought breast cancer screening directly to 2,603 women in 2016, including 2,167 in the Methodist Dallas service area.
  • Methodist Dallas Golden Cross Academic Clinic. Through this clinic, underinsured residents of our local community have access to primary and OB-GYN services.
  • Life Shines Bright Pregnancy Program. This program is dedicated to helping women have healthy pregnancies with the CenteringPregnancy® model of care. Since it started in 2008, the program has lowered the preterm birth rate among its participants to only 5.6 percent.
  • MedAssist. This program provides vital bridge medications — 31 prescriptions in the past year — to patients in financial need. Through pharmaceutical partnerships, we also connected patients to 1,084 prescriptions for free medications valued at $476,265.
  • Methodist Generations. This program offers wellness activities, social events, and educational outreach for people ages 55 and older.
  • Methodist Alliance for Patients and Physicians (MAP2). This accountable care organization (ACO) improves and saves lives through coordinated care for more than 55,000 people. These patients have seen overall improvement in health measures, as well as a lowered overall cost of care. For these efforts, MAP2 has achieved national recognition for the quality of care given to patients.
