A History of Caring & Innovation
Compassion is at the heart of everything we do at Memorial Hermann and is key to delivering on our brand promise of service excellence as we continue our role as a dedicated community partner focused on improving the health and wellbeing of all Houstonians. There are eleven Memorial Hermann acute care hospitals in the Houston metropolitan area, and with some of the city's busiest emergency rooms (including one of only two level I trauma centers in Houston), a more than significant percent of any area healthcare crisis cannot help but fall to Memorial Hermann. With 106 years of service, Memorial Hermann remains dedicated to responding to the needs of the community regardless of the magnitude. This longstanding commitment goes beyond responding to acts of recent natural disasters and includes serving the long term needs of at-risk and underserved populations through innovative models of care delivery.
In the greater Houston area where a staggering one in four residents are uninsured, Memorial Hermann annually contributes more than $450 million in uncompensated care, and through its subsidiary, the Memorial Hermann Community Benefit Corporation (MHCBC) implements programs to work with other healthcare providers, government agencies, business leaders and community stakeholders to ensure that all residents of the greater Houston area have access to the care they need to improve their quality of life and the overall health of the community.
