Advance Directives

There are several types of advance directives; the two most common forms are living wills and a durable power of attorney designation. Methodist Southlake Hospital does not honor previously signed advance directives. All patients are therefore asked to sign a written consent at registration that allows the hospital to initiate resuscitation efforts and a transfer to a higher level of care should they suffer a cardiac or respiratory arrest or other life-threatening situation.


The hospital notifies the public it serves about how to contact its hospital management and The Joint Commission to report concerns about patient safety and quality of care.

Director of Quality: (817) 865-4515 or

Note: Methods of notice may include, but are not limited to, distribution of information about The Joint Commission, including contact information in published materials such as brochures and/or posting this information on the hospital’s website.

Methodist Southlake Hospital encourages visitation in a manner that promotes healing and balances the needs of all patients and visitors.
