Houston Methodist Finalizes Acquisition of 2 Christus Hospitals

Two hospitals within Irving, Texas-based Christus Health have officially joined the Houston Methodist system.

ChristusHoustonMethodistFinalEffective yesterday, Houston Methodist acquired majority ownership of Christus St. Catherine Hospital in Katy, Texas, and Christus St. John Hospital in Nassau Bay, Texas. They are now named Houston Methodist St. Catherine Hospital and Houston Methodist St. John Hospital.

Houston Methodist and Christus Health signed a letter of intent in September. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Christus employees will now fall under the Houston Methodist umbrella.

Houston Methodist St. John Hospital will continue to serve as an acute-care hospital, but Houston Methodist St. Catherine will be converted into a long-term acute-care hospital, the system's first continuing care facility. The system now has seven hospitals, with its flagship, Houston Methodist Hospital, as one of the biggest academic medical centers in the country.

Christus Health CEO Ernie Sadau said the deal was necessary to ensure "Gulf Coast residents will have access to a full continuum of care right in their own backyard."
