Brazosport Regional Health System (BRHS) and CHI St. Luke’s Health (CHI St. Luke’s) have signed an affiliation agreement for BRHS to become part of CHI St. Luke’s. The agreement was signed Jan. 25 with an effective date of Feb. 1.
“CHI St. Luke’s is excited to welcome Brazosport Regional to our system. I’m pleased to announce that Al Guevara will continue to lead BRHS,” said Michael H. Covert, president and CEO of CHI St. Luke’s Health. In addition to having similar missions and values, our systems share a common vision of clinical and operational excellence and a firm commitment to lead the way in a new health care environment that focuses on value-driven, quality care.
Being part of larger regional and national systems like CHI St. Luke’s Health and Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) is vital to the future success of health care organizations. BRHS and CHI St. Luke’s recognize that changes in the national health care landscape present challenges to a stand-alone heath care system. As a result, BRHS is transitioning to become part of CHI St. Luke’s Health.
The addition of BRHS to CHI’s Texas division – under the leadership of CHI St. Luke’s Health – honors the organization’s deeply held commitment to build strong relationships of lasting value to better serve the people of Lake Jackson and the greater Houston metropolitan area, as well as people of Central and East Texas at CHI St. Joseph Health in Bryan-College Station and CHI St. Luke’s Health Memorial in Lufkin.
