After an extraordinary year, we couldn’t be more proud and appreciative of our entire Methodist Health System team and your above-and-beyond efforts.

Each day, throughout National Health Care Week, Methodist Hospital Foundation will be showing our gratitude with acts of appreciation and a few special surprises.

Have you seen the first ones yet? Here’s a hint: you can’t miss them by the employee parking garage at Methodist Hospital and by the front entrance at Methodist Women’s Hospital.

National Health Care Week | Day by Day

You put in the work each and every day, improving lives, living the Meaning of Care. Treat yourself to a few, well-deserved minutes of rest, relaxation and mindfulness.

A special thanks to Best Care EAP and our friend David Descant for recording this short, stress-relieving meditation for us.

Get comfortable, take a deep breath and press play…

Turn. It. Up. We’re celebrating the strength, energy and resilience of our Methodist team with a special pump-up playlist – hours of music meant to entertain, invigorate and inspire!

Access your Turn It Up Tuesday playlist on your personal device through:

Enjoy the music and know that we’re so grateful for the way you amplify our patients’ lives each and every day.

For a job well done in extreme circumstances – thank you.

Today, on Warrior Wednesday, sit with this short video from some of our health system leaders.

Take their words to heart and know that your determination – during crisis and calm – provides healing and comfort. Your work matters to patients, to families, to our community.

We’ve made it to Thank You Thursday and by now, you “auto” know how much we appreciate you.

All Methodist employees will receive a special surprise today – an exclusive Methodist car freshener, courtesy of the Foundation. Every time you see it swinging from your rearview mirror remind yourself, “Yeah, I’m pretty fresh.”

For Front Line Friday, we’re launching a two-part celebration!

Part I | You’re invited - Popcorn Break!

Due to the weather, our planned garden party is now an indoor popcorn break! Gather your colleagues and come join Methodist Hospital Foundation in the cafeterias at Methodist Hospital and Methodist Women’s Hospital.

Foundation team members will be in the cafeterias during the lunch hour, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Grab a specially-prepared poporn treat from Jock and Jill, and give us a chance to say thanks in person!

Part II | Be It Known…

It’s your day – literally! We’re rounding out National Health Care Week with a proclamation from Mayor Jean Stothert. She’s declared Friday, May 14, Methodist Health System Health Care Appreciation Day. Thank you, Mayor Stothert. Check out her official proclamation below!
