We’ve joined with University of Tennessee Health Science Center to improve patient care.


University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) and Methodist Healthcare became formally affiliated in 2002, making Methodist the principal adult private teaching hospital in Shelby County for UTHSC. To demonstrate the partnership with UTHSC, Methodist changed the name of its flagship hospital from Methodist Central Hospital to Methodist University Hospital. Research shows that the best medical centers in the country are academic medical centers, and recent studies demonstrate that patient outcomes are better in major teaching hospitals.
