Hidden Halos – Grateful Patient Family Program
At Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital, leading-edge care and compassion go hand in hand. Our patients often express their gratitude for this excellent care in a variety of ways – through their kind words, smiles, letters of thanks and financial contributions. It’s certainly a rewarding feeling for our highly-trained healthcare professionals to know they were there when patients and families needed them the most.
Perhaps it was a kind word or a smile that brought you or your family member comfort. It could have been a life-saving procedure or a visit from a volunteer during your hospital stay. We thank you for choosing Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital for your care and invite you to send a heartfelt message to anyone who made your stay pleasant. With the Grateful Patient and Family Program you have an opportunity to recognize a specific person or a department with a written note (click here to share your story) or a tribute gift (click here to donate now).

- Advance and support health care delivery and patient care
- Benefit current programs and services at Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital

Healing Garden -- "Garden of Hope"
Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital is committed to pushing the envelope in health care. We're continually seeking out ways to serve our community better. Inspired by our dear friend and colleague, Jane Justice, the Healing Garden is an opportunity to do just that! The "Garden of Hope" dedication ceremony was held in June of 2010 to showcase the garden and thank the donors and hospital staff that made it possible. Jane's parents - Clifford and Frances, and her brother - John, were on hand for this very special ceremony.
