Methodist West Hospital

Fund Options

Compassion Fund - Contributions to this fund provide additional support to patients and families beyond what the hospital is able to provide. Assistance is based on financial need and is designed to respond to the unique needs of patients and families, which can include transportation home for those that are dropped off at the Emergency Department with no way home, meal cards, and one-time prescriptions to help those we serve continue to recover at home. The ability to assist our patients and families that need extra assistance helps them to live the best quality of life while going through treatment. In addition, while much of the assistance is small, it helps to bring peace of mind during a time that is extremely stressful.

Methodist West Care Team Education & Training - Contributions provide continuing education and training for the Methodist West Hospital team to ensure that the care given to patients and families is the best that can be provided.
