College Station med center acquired by CHI St. Joseph


CHI St. Joseph Health, operator of Madisonville’s Madison Hospital, completed an acquisition of College Station Medical Center, the not-for-profit company announced in a press release Wednesday.

According to CHI St. Joseph, the takeover will give the group more than 50 locations and more than 3,000 employees.

"This will allow us to grow our mission of a healing ministry in the Brazos Valley as we create healthier communities," Theron Park, president and chief executive officer of CHI St. Joseph Health said in the release. “This acquisition expands access to health care and enhances existing health services for College Station residents, key reasons for CSMC to become part of the CHI St. Joseph family.”

Catholic Health Initiatives took over St. Joseph Health System in 2016 and has operated the Madison Hospital since. CHI, based in Englewood, Col., operates 105 hospitals in 19 states, including CHI St. Luke’s in Houston.

According to the company, adding the CSMC to the St. Joseph group “offers opportunities to expand services; improve the delivery and quality of care; and broaden access to services for individuals, employers, and communities in the Brazos Valley.”

The facility will change its name to CHI St. Joseph Health-College Station Hospital.
