Two Houston CHRISTUS Hospitals and Stehlin Soon to Join Houston Methodist

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Houston – Sept. 18, 2013 – Two Houston area CHRISTUS Hospitals, CHRISTUS St. Catherine and CHRISTUS St. John, will join Houston Methodist when a new partnership between the two faith-based health systems is finalized. This week, the boards of CHRISTUS Health and Houston Methodist took the first step, entering into a letter of intent to transfer majority ownership of the two CHRISTUS hospitals to Houston Methodist. The transaction also includes the CHRISTUS Provider Netowork clinics in the Katy and Nassau Bay areas and the CHRISTUS Stehlin Foundation for Cancer Research.

  • When the transaction closes, CHRISTUS St. John Hospital, in the Nassau Bay/Clear Lake area will continue to provide its community with top quality health care as it does now, but under the Houston Methodist name and under Houston Methodist management.
  • Houston Methodist will also operate CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital, in the Katy area, but it will likely be transitioned into Houston Methodist’s first post-acute care facility, although no plans have been finalized by Houston Methodist.
  • CHRISTUS ministries through the CHRISTUS Foundation for Healthcare in Houston – including all clinics and school-based centers for the poor and underserved – will not be part of the partnership and will continue as part of CHRISTUS Health.
