Methodist Health System Foundation, Inc. (MHSF) became a stand-alone faith based health legacy foundation following the sale of Methodist Hospital in 2004. The Foundation strives to improve the quality of life of our target population through the support of health-related partnerships. We achieve this goal through our strategic grantmaking program and the operation of school based health centers.
Our strategic grantmaking program seeks to improve the physical, emotional and mental health of citizens of the metropolitan New Orleans area with an emphasis on the communities of New Orleans East, Gentilly, and St.Bernard. We support health-related programs and services through collaboration with local and regional nonprofit organizations that serve our community.
Our school based health centers at Chalmette High School and Nunez Community College offer adolescents and adults uncomplicated access to both physical and behavioral health services in a safe and secure environment.
