As a faith-based health care system, Texas Health Resources is
committed to providing health care with respect for each person,
confidence in the gifts of medicine and reliance on the healing
power of faith. We are dedicated to caring for not only the
physical needs of our patients, but also the emotional and
spiritual needs. It is a dedication we take seriously as we
acknowledge the sacred calling of caring for life - from birth
Texas Health is rooted in the healing ministries of the
Presbyterian Church and the United Methodist Church. The founders
of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas and Texas Health
Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth were committed to a
partnership between faith and medicine.
Texas Health continues to live the legacy of these founding
organizations, recognizing that God meets people in their pain
and heals their brokenness. Our faith-based statement guides us
today and serves as a foundation for all that we do.
Leaning on Faith
Texas Health Resources believes there is something greater than
ourselves and our medicine that can offer hope and healing.
Believing this and leaning on faith can be a struggle during
times of illness; Texas Health's pastoral care staff joins with
patients and family members to help address concerns of the
spirit, such as hope, despair, purpose, life, death, forgiveness,
fear and doubt. Every Texas Health hospital offers pastoral care,
with many chaplains dedicated to a specific unit or floor.
Respect is a core value at Texas Health, and the organization
respects and welcomes the diversity of religious faiths
represented by our patients and employees. Our logo represents a
tapestry of different experiences and beliefs, with an
interconnectedness that reminds us that we are woven into our
patients' lives. We are dedicated to honoring and respecting the
beliefs that bring meaning and hope to those we serve.
Integrating Faith and Medicine
We believe that integrating faith and medicine
can ultimately enhance treatment and the healing process. We are
"Healing Hands, Caring Hearts," combining advanced technology
with compassion, comfort and respect.
Faith and medicine come together naturally for caregivers at
Texas Health, as they are encouraged to nurture their spirits and
live out their faith in their work. Whether it is a shoulder to
lean on, an ear to listen or a hand to clasp in prayer, Texas
Health staff members are dedicated to taking the time to care for
the whole patient - body, mind and spirit.
From chapels and meditation gardens to chimes and prayer books,
Texas Health provides opportunities for the integration of faith
and medicine throughout our hospitals.
