HCA could soon own 53 hospitals in Texas

Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Healthcare is looking to expand its Gulf Coast Division with the addition of North Cypress Medical Center in Houston, officials told Community Impact Newspaper.

HCA expects the transaction to be completed this year. If the deal closes, North Cypress Medical Center would be HCA's 53rd hospital in Texas, and one of many HCA hospitals in the Houston area.

HCA has expanded its presence in the Houston market in recent years by acquiring hospitals from other major for-profit hospital operators. In August 2017, the company acquired three Houston hospitals from Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare. That same month, HCA acquired Tomball (Texas) Regional Medical Center, which is about 40 minutes northwest of Houston, from Franklin, Tenn.-based Community Health Systems.

After adding those facilities, HCA Gulf Coast Division became the largest Houston-area health system, according to the Houston Business Journal.
