Methodist Health System Prostate Cancer Screening Program Wins Statewide Community Service Award
Date:1/22/2009

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Methodist Dallas Medical Center has been named the 2008 recipient of the Texas Hospital Association's Excellence in Community Service Award.
