The Society for Leading Medicine Marks Milestones and Memories in 2022
With tremendous gratitude, Houston Methodist leadership thanks the 1,005 members of The Society for Leading Medicine, who not only set a new annual membership record in 2022 but also hit a new giving high at $15 million.
Through this generous support, Houston Methodist continues to accelerate research in critical areas and train the next generation of physician leaders.
Since 2012, Society members have provided more than $74 million toward investigation of new avenues that feed discovery in medicine. Annual gifts of $1,000 benefit the Houston Methodist Hospital Excellence Fund for Leading Medicine or the excellence fund of a selected community hospital, all of which support highest priorities as determined by each hospital’s CEO. Member gifts of more than $1,000 may be designated to nursing or a preferred medical specialty.
“When people need a doctor, it’s often in a pinch. To have the peace of mind of knowing that you can make one phone call and the Platinum patient liaison will do everything possible to help you is invaluable.”
Kristen Berger, Chair, The Society for Leading Medicine
Meanwhile, members also learn the latest in medical breakthroughs straight from top physicians, network with like-minded advocates, and benefit from Platinum Program facilitated care that lends a helping hand whenever needed — whether for a medical emergency, physician referral or appointment scheduling.
The Society connects its members to the people and progress of Houston Methodist.
