It all began with a calling to improve healthcare for our community.
Concerned about the conditions of the hospital where his sick pastor was being treated, Mississippi planter John Sherard dreamed of building a hospital that would provide excellent care for patients.
Today, Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare is an integrated, not-for-profit healthcare system based in Memphis, Tennessee, with locations and partners across the Mid-South. Throughout our history, we have remained affiliated with the United Methodist Church. Our faith inspires us to serve our patients and improve the health of our entire community.
We’re committed to creating an environment that values the individual differences and unique contributions of everyone touched by our organization. And because no one knows our patients better than their family and friends, we encourage their participation in care and planning.
Through our partnership with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, we help train the next generation of medical professionals and bring cutting-edge research and treatment to our patients. We seek affiliations with community organizations and congregations who work with our underserved neighbors, because we believe that everyone should receive the best possible care.
Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare, in partnership with its medical staffs, will collaborate with patients and their families to be the leader in providing high quality, cost-effective patient-and family-centered care. Services will be provided in a manner which supports the health ministries and Social Principles of The United Methodist Church to benefit the communities we serve.
Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare will be nationally recognized for excellence in clinical quality, patient safety, and compassionate care to improve every life we touch.
