Mission & History

Presbyterian Medical Services is the successor to the United Presbyterian Church's Medical Mission work in the Southwest, which began in 1901.

We are proud to embody the following:

  • Our mission: Presbyterian Medical Services designs and delivers quality, accessible, integrated health, education, and human services in response to identified community needs of the multicultural people of the Southwest.
  • Our vision: We are leaders in improving the health and lives of all people of the Southwest.
  • Our values: Customer Service, Leadership, Integrity, Respect, Excellence, Team Concept, Employee Well-being, Financial Stewardship/Responsibility
