From a 30-bed hospital to a regionwide system, Houston Methodist celebrates 100 years in medicine

Houston Methodist is celebrating one century as an accredited hospital with a series of commemorations throughout 2019, including a fundraising campaign and a video documentary and book chronicling the hospital system’s first 100 years. The hospital system began in 1919 as The Methodist Hospital: a small, 30-bed hospital near downtown Houston originally purchased to help the community through the Spanish flu epidemic. Today, it is a system with eight hospitals, including Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital at 18220 Hwy. 249, Houston. 281-737-2500. www.houstonmethodist.org
