Methodist Charlton Welcomes New Advisory Board Member

board memberMethodist CharltonMedical Center recently welcomed Rev. Marie Mitchell to the community advisory board. For the past eight years, Rev. Mitchell has served as associate pastor/pastoral care at First United Methodist Church Duncanville. Prior to journeying into church ministry, Rev. Mitchell worked in the business sector and retired from Southwestern Bell Telephone after a 21-year career. She graduated cum laude from Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University with a Masters of Divinity, and was ordained an elder in the United Methodist Church in June of 2010.

Rev. Mitchell says she joined the Methodist Charlton advisory board because she sees it as a wonderful opportunity and privilege to become an advocate for the hospital, and be a bridge builder between the community and the hospital in our changing world. “As I learn more about the dynamics and operations of Methodist Charlton, being a part of the advisory board will allow me and other board members to be a critical part of sharing the good news and valuable information with those in our communities, churches, organizations and families,” says Rev. Mitchell. “We can help them become better informed and know that Methodist Charlton is committed to focusing on enhanced services, quality care, and reaching set goals that make this facility one of which we can all be proud.”

Rev. Mitchell is a longtime resident of the Best Southwest community, having lived there for over 20 years. She has other connections to Methodist Charlton as well. Her grandson was born at Methodist Charlton, and she regularly visits church members and their families in the hospital in her pastoral care role.

“I see that the hospital is making great strides and inroads in meeting the needs of its patients,” says Rev. Mitchell. “And the growth and positive changes have not gone unnoticed.” Note to editor:
