Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas (MHM) has committed a significant $181.1m investment for the year 2024 to advance health equity, strengthen communities, and impact systemic change.  

The commitment marks a 21% increase from the previous year’s investment, reflecting a strategic focus on addressing “systemic inequities” and “socio-economic barriers” across its service area in 74 counties in South Texas, US.  

MHM’s mission also includes its one-half ownership of the South Texas-based healthcare system Methodist Healthcare.  

This ownership structure will help Methodist Healthcare in delivering quality care to community, with earnings supporting the uninsured and economically disadvantaged across MHM’s service area. 

The total budget will be allocated across grants, direct services, strategic operating initiatives, as well as administrative costs. 

For this year, MHM has allocated $54.5m in community grants to more than 174 non-profit organisations and municipalities to support healthy communities by addressing the Social Determinants of Health.
