As one of the nation’s largest nonprofit, faith-based health systems, Texas Health Resources has proved vital to a state ravaged by the COVID-19 pandemic—by providing much-needed support to both its employees as well as the communities it serves, which include more than 2 million patients annually. The Arlington-based medical provider struck up partnerships with school districts such as those in Fort Worth to help provide COVID vaccines for all district employees, including substitute teachers, in an effort to reopen schools. And in a testament to its commitment to public service and focus on representation, 34% of its board of trustees are minorities. Texas Health Resources says it donates more than $60 million annually to philanthropic and nonprofit efforts as well. “During COVID-19 they made sure we had PPE and encouraged us to use it to stay safe,” says one employee of the company’s mission to protect its workforce. These and other initiatives have helped boost the health system up eight spots on this year’s list.
