Methodist Hospital of Southern California Charity Profile
The Methodist Hospital of Southern California began operating in 1903 with five beds in a two-story house on Hewitt Street in downtown Los Angeles. The first patient was a Chinese woman. In 1909, the Women's Home Missionary Society of the Southern California Conference of the Methodist Church, founders of the hospital, began to raise funds for a new facility. The Society purchased the former mayor's residence at 2826 South Hope Street and determined that it was just far enough out to be quiet, just close enough in for convenience.
Our mission is to provide high-quality healing services while caring for the patient as a whole person with emotional and spiritual dimensions as well as physical needs.
