Family Care Center
The Family Care Center makes visible the effects of a blended Faith and Health approach where it matters most—in the lives of the families of our patients.
A new physical space opened in November 2010, inside Methodist University Hospital. This space is the first fruit of a powerful collaboration between Associates, physicians, congregational volunteers and, of course, our families, all focused on advancing the health and healing of our patients.
This area is:
- a family-centered healing environment with a quiet area and outdoor meditation space for family members as well as space for local clergy to counsel their members
- a resource center for family members and congregational visitors to equip them for patient care and wellness
- an indoor interfaith chapel to accommodate and embrace all faiths, including visiting chaplains
The Family Care Center serves as the hub for Methodist’s many faith and health initiatives outside its walls, and also local, innovative research and training activities, as we all learn together.
Though there is a single Center at Methodist University Hospital, a Faith & Health Manager is available at each of our Memphis hospitals.
The Family Care Center is led by Rev. John Wilcher. If you would like to become a volunteer, please complete the online volunteer application form.
