Why it matters.

MRC (Methodist Retirement Communities), which owns and operates PineCrest, serves about 2,000 residents in 11 (and growing) senior living communities in Texas, including College Station, Bryan, Huntsville, Texarkana, La Porte 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.

How “not-for-profit” ought to mean “better.”

PineCrest is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization owned and operated by MRC (Methodist Retirement Communities). Our mission for over a half-century has been to serve seniors in a Christian environment. 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, activities, 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.

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”.
