HCA now owns 53 hospitals in Texas

Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Healthcare expanded its Gulf Coast Division with the addition of North Cypress Medical Center, a 139-bed hospital in Houston.

North Cypress is HCA's 53rd hospital in Texas and one of many HCA hospitals in the Houston area.

"We are very pleased to be expanding our care in Northwest Houston," Troy Villarreal, HCA's Gulf Coast Division president, said in a press release. "Over the coming months, we will work closely with the hospital's medical staff, employees and the community to explore ways to enhance services and expand access to specialized healthcare throughout the 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.
