Houston Methodist extends support to provide better care for breast cancer.


The Houston Methodist Hospital has a legacy of over 90 years of medical milestones that attract patients from around the world and sets a global standard of excellence in patient-centered care, education and training, clinical collaboration, and advisory services.

Recently, Princess Haifa Al-Faisal, chairwoman of the Zahra Breast Cancer Association and Houston Methodist Hospital (HMH) signed a collaborative partnership that aims to provide leadership training for breast cancer professionals to deliver the highest level of care to the patients.

The Zahra Association held a press meeting in Riyadh in the presence of the vice president of the patient services and education department at Houston Methodist Hospital, Summer Dijani, to announce the partnership between Zahra Association and Houston Methodist. The aim of the collaboration is to be able to do three things:

1. Participate in the awareness campaign and join Zahra Association in their journey.

2. Giving the power to women to really take ownership of their health and their bodies and encouraging women to participate in the early diagnosis.

3. To provide training and sharing best practices with the physicians.

“When you share best practices you learn a lot about each other and you are ultimately able to have a better and stronger impact on the patient’s care”. -Summer Dijani

Houston Methodist has also collaborated with King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Center (KFSHRC) and the Ministry of Health on a number of projects.
