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. To advance Memorial Hermann’s vision of creating healthier communities, the Memorial Hermann Community Benefit Corporation (CBC) implements initiatives that work with other health care providers, government agencies, business leaders and community stakeholders that are designed to improve the overall quality of life in our communities.
Our work is built on the foundation of four intersecting pillars: Access to Health care, Emotional Well-being, Food as Health, and Exercise is Medicine, and takes us outside of our campuses and into the community.
The Community Resource Centers provide one-stop locations where individuals and families in our community can get help with access to health care, health education, and social services.
Our Exercise is Medicine program offers the tools to improve the health and well-being of our community through incorporating exercise as a vital sign into physician offices, exercise prescriptions, and activation of parks.
Memorial Hermann Health Centers for Schools provide medical, mental health, dental, nutritional, navigation, and exercise programming to eligible children and adolescents in more than 80 schools in the greater Houston area.
Today, patients are screened for food insecurity and have access to several resources providing support and assistance in getting healthy, nutritious food.
