(Washington, D.C.) – On Wednesday, December 11, 2019, Congressman Al Green and Members of the Greater Houston delegation filed a congressional resolution in observation of Houston Methodist Hospital’s 100th anniversary. Congressman Green released the following statement:

“Since its establishment in 1919, Houston Methodist has been devoted to providing exceptional and passionate health care in Houston, Texas. From its flagship hospital in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center to each of its community hospitals and clinics, Houston Methodist continuously breaks the mold. The innovative medical breakthroughs, technologies, and groundbreaking research and development that have originated at Houston Methodist have impacted not only the Greater Houston area but the world.

“The tireless commitment of Houston Methodist to provide quality patient care has culminated in approximately 1.3 million patient encounters within the last year and the current employment of about 25,000 people. Furthermore, I commend their dedication to providing access to uninsured and underinsured individuals by offering various opportunities for financial assistance.

“I salute the leadership, medical professionals, and staff of Houston Methodist as they commemorate the 100th anniversary of Houston Methodist’s establishment. I am proud to serve Houston Methodist and the Texas Medical Center in Congress, and I thank my colleagues from the Greater Houston Area – Representatives Jackson Lee, McCaul, Olson, Weber, Babin, Brady, Crenshaw, Fletcher, and Garcia – for their bipartisan support as original cosponsors of this resolution.”
