Chron.com, February 3, 2014 – The transfer of majority ownership of CHRISTUS St. John Hospital and CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital to Houston Methodist is now complete, with the two hospitals officially joining Houston Methodist Feb. 3.
Under this agreement, CHRISTUS St. John Hospital in Clear Lake will now be called Houston Methodist St. John Hospital and CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital will now be Houston Methodist St. Catherine Hospital.
Houston Methodist St. John Hospital will continue providing comprehensive care to the greater Clear Lake area.
Houston Methodist St. Catherine soon will be repurposed to a long-term acute-care hospital to complement the services Houston Methodist already offers the west Houston/Katy community.
Under this agreement, Houston Methodist has retained CHRISTUS Continuing Care, a division of CHRISTUS Health, to manage St. Catherine.
