Broadening the Definition of Health Care

Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas believes that caring for health means caring for the needs of the whole person—body, mind, and spirit.

In addition to providing clinical care for the uninsured and economically disadvantaged, we are committed to broadening the definition of health care to include championing healthier neighborhoods, supportive relationships, broadband access, food security, and financial stability to strengthen families and communities.

As a private, faith-based, not-for-profit organization, we use the earnings we receive as 50-50 co-owner of the Methodist Healthcare System to fund community-led efforts and promote public policy changes that advance more fair and just opportunities for healthy living—now and for generations to come.

Guided by faith and walking hand-in-hand with people in the 74 counties we serve, we work to meet the unique needs of each community, ensuring that more people have the opportunity to live a happy, healthy, productive life.

Broadening the definition of health care through coordinated initiatives means:

Programs & Services

As a direct-service provider, Methodist Healthcare Ministries offers access to clinical care for low-income, uninsured, individuals in and around Bexar County. Our programming expands beyond clinical care to include a wide array of community-based programs and services that foster and support health and wellness for individuals of all ages across our 74-county service area.


Community grants are awarded annually to organizations who share a mission of providing health care services to the uninsured and underserved. Methodist Healthcare Ministries’ model embraces a holistic approach to health care: mind, body, and spirit. Funds provided to partner agencies are intended to improve access to quality care in South Texas.


Methodist Healthcare Ministries is committed to addressing and eliminating systemic barriers to equity. One of the ways this is accomplished is through full-time policy and advocacy work, at the state, local and federal levels to educate lawmakers and influence legislation that improves the health and well-being of all Texans.


Methodist Healthcare Ministries supports a variety of special initiatives that allow us to respond to the unique health care needs and opportunities of the communities we serve. These initiatives include efforts to improve Access to Care, Digital Equity, Economic Mobility, Food Security, and more.


Who We Serve

Methodist Healthcare Ministries was created to serve the “least-served” in South Texas—those without anywhere else to turn for their well-being. Those receiving service from its programs and services are economically disadvantaged (200% of Federal Poverty Level) and have little or no health insurance coverage.

This population faces multiple barriers to reaching their full potential for health and life: reliable transportation, affordable housing, safe neighborhoods, attainable childcare, supportive relationships, clean water, and many more.

Building upon the inherent strengths of each person, Methodist Healthcare Ministries employs a patient-centered, trauma-informed approach to providing care that helps each person to flourish and thrive—regardless of their circumstances.
