Is that they have bought or are buying The Med and it will become a maternity and women's center. All cardiac care will be in Bryan.

St. Luke's still need more money?

Going to be hard for them to compete with Baylor Scott an White. An overall better hospital.

I've heard similar rumors that is being bought by CHI to be a women/children hospital. Can't substantiate the rumor though.

CSMC been for sale for years. Don't bet money on the CHI thing. Would have already happened if it was likely ....

Very old rumors and not a bit of truth to it. With small hospitals like we have here they are always for sale, it doesn't matter if there is a for sale sign in the yard or not. Nobody in town is buying anyone else in town out.

If the Med was to be bought, I would not believe that they would separate services the way you mentioned. As for Scott and White being a better hospital all together as mentioned by another poster, I call BS. I have been in all three and disagree 100%

My money is on Memorial Herman after the 2020 election. They started their own health plan and have been able to undercut a lot of traditional health insurance companies in Houston. But only their facilities are in network and you're almost forced to use their facilities as long as they provide service in the county you live in. People with kids in college living elsewhere get a different plan that costs more for the insured.

Seems to me that it would make sense for them to set up a facility in Brazos County and possibly Travis County to bring people with kids at college back into their plans and reap more profits. They would also be able to go after local contracts. Of course that's assuming that the next election doesn't significantly affect their ability to profit from their plan.

I know that Texas Children's Hospital and UPA recently merged. I'm not sure if that has any bearing on the future of the Med, but I could see Texas Children's increasing their footprint here.

TCH isn't happening. We aren't anywhere close to a children's hospital market size, especially considering the proximity of Dell, BSW and TCH children's hospitals.

Not saying full blown hospital but given their recent merger, now in College Station, I could see a few TCH specialized offices being added near the UPA office.

I've always thought it would make sense for Memorial Hermann to expand up here since so many in Houston have their insurance plan and send their kids to A&M. Now that the merger with Baylor Scott & White is no more I could really see them taking a look at The Med.

Maybe a better looking hospital, but that's about all. There are plenty of certifications they don't have that St. Josephs has. It depends on what you're looking for.

It would make sense. But ignores the reasons MH wanted to merge with BSW and why it didn't happen. They got way bigger problems to fix than getting a BCS location.

Well they are not really CHI/St. Joseph anymore either. Dignity bought CHI. Their new name is Common Spirit Health but I doubt they will spend the money to rebrand everything.

and everything is a rumor until the ink is on the paper. You see how close BSW and Memorial were on their deal and backed out at last second. I think the finance folks got them to realize that their would be more bad debt than each would want to deal with.

That is the whole reason CHS(The Med) is in the problem they are because of the parent company CHS having way to much bad debt from buying the HMA chain among other things.

I'm looking forward to CHISJ turning CSMC into a women's facility. CHISJ (main) and BSW should be the only full service ERs in this town, in my opinion.

CHI was about 20% larger in revenue prior to the merger. I don't think anyone called it a acquisition of one or the other. They both continue to operate as Dignity and CHI in facility names. Will likely continue with new facilities as they don't overlap in geography.

Yes, going from 3 full service ERs to 2 sounds like a great idea for a growing town. We should actually apply this logic across the board, we have so many other businesses and services we could reduce!

That depends. Coming and goings has always been allowed, speculation on future business and such.

Personal rumors like school/public officials and their affairs or other problems, unless mentioned in the news, are not allowed.

TCH doesn't do anything without a long-term plan and strategy. They're here for a reason. It may take them some time, but I think their presence will only increase.
