Methodist Healthcare to buy Jourdanton hospital

Methodist Healthcare System, a partnership between HCA and Methodist Healthcare Ministries, has announced an agreement to acquire South Texas Regional Medical Center from Community Health Systems. The 67- bed hospital is located in Jourdanton.

Methodist Healthcare System’s mission is to provide exceptional patient care. Four Methodist facilities received an “A” in the spring 2017 Leapfrog Patient Safety grades. Methodist Stone Oak Hospital is the only CMS Five Star hospital in San Antonio. This dedication to exceptional patient care and safety is prevalent in all Methodist facilities.

Methodist is the market leader in health-care services throughout South Texas; the acquisition allows the ownership of South Texas Regional Medical Center to remain local while expanding the network of care to all of the 26 facilities within the Methodist Healthcare System.

The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approval, is expected to close in the summer of 2017.
