The Strength of Our Teams

Working together with the patient at the center of the team.

At Methodist, we know that great success comes from great teamwork. Ours is a culture of teams dedicated to providing the best care and best overall experience. That is why we put you, the patient, at the center of our team.

What can we do to best meet your health care needs? We bring together talented and caring clinicians, administrators and support staff to work with you to answer this question. Our systems and technology allow us to communicate seamlessly across our departments, clinics and facilities. Your records, tests, history and treatment can be viewed in real time electronically from your Methodist Physicians Clinic provider's office throughout our hospitals and locations. This teamwork helps us develop a care plan for your best possible outcomes.

See how the power of teamwork is used throughout our Health System to give you the best care possible.

  • Time is Muscle

    Chest pain is often a life-threatening emergency. From your first step inside the Emergency Department, a comprehensive team is activated to reduce the time needed to diagnose and treat chest pain. A specially-developed questionnaire helps quickly identify patients for an ECG (electrocardiogram). With a mobile computer, the patient is admitted following those initial results. A team including a Registered Nurse, Cardiologist, Surgeon, and Catheter Lab Technicians quickly allow for diagnosis and treatment. As members of the American College of Cardiology's D2B: An Alliance for Quality™, Jennie Edmundson Hospital and Methodist Hospital teams are able to quickly analyze cases and institute treatment.
