Core Values

Methodist Healthcare Ministries’ team members defined their own set of core values embraced in the message of “I am the caring servant,” which shapes our relationship with the people we serve and each other. Our values are more than a philosophy at Methodist Healthcare Ministries; it is the compass that guides our behavior and our continuous improvement. It’s how we lead by example.


I am honest and trustworthy. I am accountable for the impact of my actions and my words.


I am committed to making time for my loved ones, my community and myself. I embrace faith, hope and forgiveness in my daily life.


I am collaborative and an open-communicator. I am innovative in my approach to working with others, and in finding solutions to challenges.


I am respectful, and do not judge others. I have concern for others and a desire to help.

Making a difference

I am committed to a vision beyond myself. I am mission-focused.

Guiding Principles

Methodist Healthcare Ministries is directed by a set of guiding principles and statements that support the fulfillment of its mission, are aligned with the Social Principles of the United Methodist Church, and ensure the organization is poised to advance health equity in ways that honor and dignify each individual and family living in its 74-county service area.
We understand that health and wellness begin long before individuals seek clinical care and prioritize the importance of the social determinants of health and access to quality resources and care as driving factors for the well-being of individuals, families, and communities throughout their lives.

We realize achievement of improved health and well-being of the people and communities we serve is a long-term commitment that requires intentional efforts focused on health equity.

We seek to balance its work for the least served by providing the best quality clinical care, connecting individuals and families to needed resources, and working with communities to improve their health and well-being.
We don’t do it alone. To address the needs of every community, we support, convene, and/or partner with others engaged in and/or leading efforts to improve community health and well-being.
We build relationships with churches and faith communities of all denominations to advance the health and well-being of families and whole communities.

We partner with people with lived experiences to co-design, co-create, co-evaluate changes that improve health and well-being of families and communities.

We support place-based efforts to strengthen historically underserved communities.
We sustain a culture of continuous improvement and learning where innovation is welcomed, practiced, tested, and implemented.
