Methodist Health System Foundation President and CEO April Box Chamberlain, CFRE; James A. Moody, MD; Patty Moody; Methodist Health System President and CEO Stephen L. Mansfield, PhD, FACHE; and Methodist Dallas Medical Center President Michael Mayo, FACHE, announce the Methodist James A. Moody Brain and Spine Institute October 15, 2010 at Methodist Dallas Medical Center.

In recognition of his leadership, clinical excellence, and compassion, over 300 donors participated in a gift to honor Dr. James A. Moody with the naming of the Methodist James A. Moody, MD Brain and Spine Institute. A standing-room only crowd of physicians, friends, family members, patients, and co-workers filled the Methodist Dallas Medical Center Pavilion III offices October 15 for the surprise announcement.

“In recognition of your 32 years of dedication and visionary leadership, it is our honor to announce the Methodist James A. Moody Brain and Spine Institute,” said Methodist Health System Foundation President and CEO April Box Chamberlain as she unveiled an artist rendering of the new building signage.

Methodist Health System President and CEO Stephen L. Mansfield described Dr. Moody as typifying Methodist’s mission to save and improve lives. “Dr. Moody helped to establish Methodist Dallas Medical Center as one of the premier centers in Dallas-Fort Worth providing advanced brain, spine, trauma, and neurocritical care,” said Mansfield.

A member of the Methodist Dallas Medical Center medical staff for over 30 years, Dr. Moody was instrumental as a Methodist board member in initiating CareFlite’s air ambulance service and the Level II trauma program at Methodist Dallas.  He has long been active in neurosurgery advocacy and education, serving as a member of the Trauma Section of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, and on an advisory committee of the Council of State Neurosurgical Societies involved in forming education and recruitment opportunities for trauma management.

“I have come to respect the collaborator and teacher in Dr. Moody,” said Methodist Dallas Medical Center President Michael Mayo, “For all that he has to give and teach us, he is also a student himself — always learning and improving for the benefit of the patients in his care.”

“I am truly humbled and would like to thank Methodist’s supporters for believing in us and recognizing a strong facility,” said Dr. Moody, “Your gifts will allow us to strengthen our efforts to reach out even more to the community we serve.”

“This is his passion,” said Patty Moody, “God has gifted him with this talent and it is a joy and a blessing to see his hard work and devotion to his patients recognized in this meaningful way.”

Dr. Moody received his medical degree from The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and his neurosurgical training from The University of Tennessee and the nationally renowned Semmes-Murphey Clinic in Memphis, Tennessee. He has been board certified since 1980 by the American Board of Neurological Surgeons.
