July 5, 2017 (Houston, Texas) – Hospital leadership and its board of directors announce the successful integration of Tomball Regional Medical Center into HCA Healthcare’s Gulf Coast Division.
Last year, the hospital’s leadership and board of directors conducted an extensive search for a partner to ensure continued delivery of care here in Tomball. “HCA Healthcare is that partner – a healthcare leader that understands and is committed to high-quality, community-based hospitals,” said Tomball Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees Chairman John Neubauer. “All across the country, HCA Healthcare empowers local caregivers and gives back to the communities they operate in. That is our commitment to our neighbors in the Tomball area and we are excited to have found a partner with the same culture.”
The Gulf Coast Division of HCA Healthcare is based in Houston, Texas, and operates 14 hospitals in Houston, Corpus Christi and South Texas. “For more than 40 years, Tomball Regional Medical Center physicians and staff have been delivering high quality care to this community,” said HCA Gulf Coast Division President Troy Villarreal. “We are pleased to welcome them into the HCA Gulf Coast Division family and are committed to ensuring that they have the tools, resources and collaboration needed to ensure that continues for the next 40 years and beyond.”
Tomball Regional Medical Center Interim CEO Brett Kinman has guided the hospital through the transition. “Our physicians and staff put this community first,” said Kinman. “We have found a partner that understands and invests in our hometown hospital. For our team and our community, I am deeply pleased to know that exceptional care will continue to be delivered here in Tomball.”
Going forward, the health system will remain operation under the name Tomball Regional Medical Center.
