Methodist Hospital Foundation: Family Crisis Connection Is Here to Help

Cynthia S. Peacock
President & CEO
Methodist Hospital Foundation

Methodist Health System staff are not just employees — you are family. 

With this in mind, the Foundation distributes one-time financial assistance to employees in urgent and genuine need through a program called Family Crisis Connection (FCC).

From the single mom with a health condition that left her unable to work, to the couple with unexpected complications from pregnancy, or the employee whose illness and long rehab forced her to go part-time — Family Crisis Connection was there to help.

We are so lucky to have this unique program available to each and every employee of Methodist Health System. Your gifts during the annual Caring Campaign and ongoing support throughout the year made it possible for Methodist Hospital Foundation to distribute nearly $38,000 last year to 72 employees in need of assistance.

Family Crisis Connection is designed to be a simple, confidential and accessible process. Employees facing a personal crisis should first contact a Family Crisis Representative (see list below) who will help and guide you through the process. For more information about FCC, read our Frequently Asked Questions.

I feel privileged to witness the miracle of employees overcoming obstacles in their lives thanks to the support they receive from employees like YOU. Knowing there is someone who cares, someone willing to help, is a miracle in itself.
