NOT-FOR-PROFIT MEANS LEADING FROM THE HEART
MRC (Methodist Retirement Communities), founded in 1962 owns and operates PineCrest, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, who serves about 2,500 residents in 13 senior living communities in Texas, including College Station, Bryan, Huntsville, Texarkana, La Porte, Fort Worth, Corpus Christi and League City, with a central office in The Woodlands. We’re honored to serve seniors regardless of their nationality, race, gender, disability or religion – that is, you don’t need to be United Methodist or Christian or religious in any way to stay with us.
As a nonprofit, all leftover margin is reinvested in improvements, while keeping rate increases to a minimum. Nonprofit status brings with it a higher level of accountability, which translates to a higher standard of services, programming, programs, housing and care. In short, as a staff, we’re committed to maintaining PineCrest as the best senior living community in East Texas. As a CCRC (continuing care retirement community), we offer a full continuum of care: Independent Living, Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing, Memory Support, Rehabilitation and Home Health.
We honor and serve older adults as an expression of Christ’s love.
SERVING LUFKIN FOR OVER 30 YEARS.
In 1992, MRC expanded to Lufkin and developed PineCrest as its first CCRC, with the full continuum of services we offer today. The two Memory Support buildings were named after longtime supporters George Henderson and Lottie Temple, and are lovingly referred to simply as “George” and “Lottie.” Over the years, thousands of area seniors have called PineCrest home. With longevity and a name firmly associated with quality, it’s not a surprise that many residents today are the second or third generation in their family to live at the community.
In order to fulfill our mission, we rally around a set of values to guide and direct every decision, word or deed. Around MRC, we call them ICARE values: integrity, compassion, accountability, respect, and excellence. What do these ICARE values look like? Well, you’ll know it when you see it. It’s doing the right thing- no matter what, it’s doing what is required and then some, it’s being a good steward, it’s honoring others above oneself, it’s creating moments that are meaningful, it’s what we do- it’s ICARE.
