  1. Noticed a $300,000 permit this week for 2900 Richmond Ave.
  2. Fom The Houston Chronice CONSTRUCTION Hermann ready to start building After winning tax breaks from the city of Houston and Harris County, Memorial Hermann Healthcare System will break ground this month on a long-awaited medical center and office building. The 30-story tower, which will include more than 500,000 square feet of space, will be built at the corner of Fannin and MacGregor in the Texas Medical Center. Mischer Healthcare Services is a partner in development of the building, Memorial Hermann Medical Plaza. The $155 million facility will include an ambulatory care center, an imaging center and surgical and endoscopy suites. Holliday Fenoglio Fowler arranged a $117.5 million construction and permanent loan for the project through Teachers Insurance Annuity Association and GMAC Commercial Mortgage Bank.
  3. Have been searching thru Google images & several forums w/in HAIF w/out much success. In the past the good folkes of the Historic Houston Forum have always come through w/some really good photos of old historical Houston prior to tear down or total abandonment. So as time permits would someone be able to provide some photos or perhaps a link to go & view?
  4. Somewhat confused. There are a couple of FAA filings. One is for an '80, 4-story MOB Archive Search Results Form 7460-1 for ASN 2021-ASW-5631-OE (faa.gov) Another is for a structure, not noted as a garage nor crane tied to the same project and timeline but '152 Proposed Case for TX: 2021-ASW-6823-OE (faa.gov) Hadn't seen a mention of a new MOB at the Greater Heights campus from anything previously. Timeline appears to be December of this year to January 2023 in either case. Based on the maps, it looks like it should be on the west side of the complex.
  5. Maybe I am posting this in the wrong section, but I live in Meyerland and I have often wondered why we do not have a Super Walmart in the SW Houston/Meyerland area. We have a normal Walmart off of South Post Oak and 610 (which is always REALLY crowded), but not a Super WM. Anyone else think there needs to be one?
  6. County wants to buy Memorial Hermann SW Hospital district purchase could run to $185 million By PEGGY O'HARE HOUSTON CHRONICLE Aug. 6, 2009, 9:36PM The Harris County Hospital District has tentatively agreed to buy Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital this fall with hopes of expanding medical care access to the uninsured and underprivileged, hospital officials announced Thursday. The sale, if approved by Harris County Commissioners Court, would allow the county's hospital district to add 600 beds to its system to keep up with public demand. Officials with both hospital networks declined to release the cost of the move Thursday, saying a confidentiality agreement prohibits them from discussing that, but County Commissioner Steve Radack said he had heard a potential price tag ranging from $165 million to $185 million. The district entered into a non-binding letter of intent to buy the hospital. The acquisition, scheduled to close by late November, will not result in a tax increase, hospital district officials said. The hospital district said it plans to operate the facility as a full-service hospital serving privately insured patients, as well as those on Medicare, Medicaid and those without medical insurance, they said. Dan Wolterman, chief executive officer for the Memorial Hermann Healthcare System, said his nonprofit network initially had no plans to sell the hospital at 7600 Beechnut, but noted the county hospital district's proposal to purchase the building “just made good sense” when further studied. Though Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital has remained profitable, its earnings have declined in recent years as the demographics of its patients have changed and other nearby hospitals have closed, Wolterman said. “Ideally, we would not have ventured out to do this, but this is the right thing to do,” Wolterman said Thursday night. “The southwest (Houston) market is a difficult market. Just going back seven or eight years ago, there were multiple hospitals serving that market — today the (Memorial Hermann) Southwest Hospital is the only one there. “The neighborhood surrounding (Memorial Hermann) Southwest Hospital has experienced significant demographic decline over the last 10-plus years. That has caused some difficulties in running this hospital efficiently as you are inundated with uninsured and underinsured patients and government patients from Medicare and Medicaid ... We have seen a slight deterioration in its profitability and in the volume of patients we treat on any given day. But it's not been significant — just a slow, steady erosion.” Wolterman said the Memorial Hermann Healthcare System's network is not overleveraged or overextended. He also said the proposed hospital sale was not driven by a need to “dump” some of its property. The entire Memorial Hermann system just experienced one of its most successful years ever, he said, with the nonprofit network's earnings exceeding its budgeted income by 62 percent. Actual earnings across the Memorial Hermann Healthcare System as a whole have exceeded budgeted income for nine consecutive years, he said. “This (proposed sale) was not done out of a position of weakness or problems,” Wolterman said Thursday night. “This was done out of a position of strength. We are very strong financially and have been.” County hospital district officials stressed they have no plans to close any of its other hospitals, such as LBJ Hospital. Besides adding more beds, the proposed purchase also will allow the county hospital district to pick up more Medicare and Medicaid patients, as well as privately insured patients, which will ultimately help subsidize the costs of its charity and indigent care, said David Lopez, chief executive officer of the Harris County Hospital District. “The demand for acute care is going to continue to grow,” Lopez said Thursday night. “This gives us an opportunity to take responsibility for the individuals that are considered gold-card members in our community. So there's a lot of reasons why this makes sense for us.” If the hospital sale is approved, Lopez said, he hopes to staff the facility with a mix of doctors already working there and physicians affiliated with the county hospital district. Memorial Hermann officials said they do not anticipate any layoffs will occur as a result of the proposed sale. If any jobs are eliminated, employees would be moved to other Memorial Hermann hospital campuses, Wolterman said. The county's proposed purchase encompasses the hospital building and four medical office buildings, a Heart and Vascular Institute, an accredited cancer center, a surgery center and an outpatient imaging center. The wellness center and the University Place Retirement Community on the hospital campus would not be included. Harris County Judge Ed Emmett said more health care facilities are needed on Houston's southwest side and the deal could benefit both institutions by shifting patients who rely on Medicare or Medicaid to a public facility. Members of Commissioners Court were told recently that a deal was in the works, Emmett said, but hadn't been provided with details before Thursday's announcement. County Commissioner Sylvia Garcia said she is open to the proposal if the price is reasonable and no tax increase is required. “Anything the hospital district can do to enhance its delivery of services and increase the access to care is a positive thing,” Garcia said. But Radack was more skeptical. “Obviously, this is a huge potential expenditure,” he said Thursday. Radack said he is particularly concerned the hospital's location, near Fort Bend County, will make it a magnet for residents of other counties seeking free health care. “I've been very concerned, now more than ever, with all the free care we've been giving to people from other counties, which needs to stop,” Radack said. The Chronicle's Mike Snyder contributed to this report.

  8. Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital will break ground on a new, seven-story patient tower early next year. The cost of the project is roughly $104 million. http://www.ultimatewoodlands.com/2009/10/hospital-plans-new-104-million-facility
  9. A friend forwarded this internal email sent to Memorial Hermann TMC employees from the CEO earlier this week.
  10. Found this today. I'm not sure how long it has been there. Pipeline Realty seems to have several projects in the area http://www.pipelinerealty.com/category/retail/
  11. A sign just went up this afternoon on near the Kroger sign http://impactnews.com/houston-metro/cy-fair/memorial-hermann-to-build-hospital-campus-in-cypress/
  12. There has been so many discussions on various buildings going up that I find it difficult to remember to know if we covered them all. During my runs, I noticed that they knocked down the old Miller Beer wherehouse next too "Bridal mart" or whatever it's called on 59S @ 610. Any news as far as this goes? Also there is a substantial project going on at Fannin and Greenbriar (I think) Right near the dome where Fannin and the other street splits. Did we cover those two items in the past or does anyone have the skinny on the construction? Ricco
  13. The Memorial-Hermann Hospital in Sugarland in being built. There is a rumour that a lot of the staff will transfer from the TMC location to the Sugarland location. Any one have any architecture information on the new facility? We would like to post that information on http://www.sugarlandinfo.net Thanks. Memorial-Hermann Staff
  14. It's one of the least architecturally pleasing buildings, to put it nicely, ever built, in my opinion. The off-center crown, in particular, gives me an intense urge to fix it, or demolish it.

  16. according to this article, there seems to be a need in West houston (which they call the geologic center of the city, believe it or not) that will be completed in 2010, at which the old hospital will be vacated and renovated. should make traffic fun there for a couple of years! Especially when you consider the various ramps to/from bw8 and I-10 are to be demolished in the near future. I look forward to this being comleted, though. Should make for an excellent addition to the city.
  17. I heard they are going to demo that 'landmark' building to pave way for mixed-use development. Anyone has any info on that development?
  18. Yes, this is going up. "Colgate-Palmolive is awarding all nine participating hospitals a Fun Center..."; however, "Voting remains open through February 29, and the hospital that receives the most support will receive an additional Fun Center" - presently Houston and Detroit each have 31.2x% of the vote, with Atlanta and Philadelphia running a distant third and fourth at about half that. http://www.colgate.com/app/Colgate/US/Corp...-love/vote.cvsp will take you all of ten seconds to complete, if you will. You can vote once per 24 hour period, so a total of thirty seconds of your workweek would be appreciated. Moderators, your vote too would be good; two days from now, edit the title to reflect the outcome -- or just merge with the low-profile thread in Other Houston, but don't merge before the first of March, please.
  19. Anybody here have any idea when the Memorial-Hermann Branch Hospital on 1960 just north of 290 will open? The signage said it was to open last summer, but that didn't happen. I drove past it just last week and it still isn't open. What gives?
  20. Any new news on this or when this it will open? http://www.mhcenturyproject.org/locations/...p?c=k&p=hos found this link. It looks like it will open to the public in January 2007.
  21. Noticing a great deal of construction along the 290 corridor past FM 1960 with 4 new hospitals and an array of professional buildings under development. So far we're looking at Memorial Hermann, Columbia HCA, North Cypress Medical Center, and another unnamed project near Cypress-Rosehill.
  22. In 1946-47 a study was conducted that concluded the following 10 institutions as members that make up TMC: 1. Baylor University College of Medicine 2. University of Texas Dental Branch 3. University of Texas School of Public Health 4. University of Texas Post-Graduate Medical School 5. M.D. Anderson Hospital for Cancer Research 6. Herman Hospital 7. Methodist Hospital 8. St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital 9. Tuberculosis Hospital 10. Medical Library of Houston Academy of Medicine Given the passage of almost 6 decades how many more institutions would you thank have become members & would the old TB hospital still be active or changed names and mission today?
  23. I was searching for a rendering on Kirksey's website for the new project over the rail station and came across this. I searched HAIF to see if this article from Texas Construction had been brought up before and didn't find anything. It's a laundry list of Memorial Hermann projects in the works for the greater Houston area, many that we are already aware of. It is construction focused though and has interesting details on some of the projects. The Making of a Med-Tropolis Memorial Hermann Building More Than $1 Billion in New Projects Memorial Hermann is utilizing a variety of financing mechanisms to build dozens of new structures --including the largest commercial project currently under way in Houston--at the same time. By Rob Patterson Houston's Memorial Hermann Healthcare System, the largest not-for-profit health-care provider in the state, is actively building to meet the coming needs of its community. Link

  25. LATEST NEWS 11:00 PM CST Wednesday Video chain teams with hospital to bring cheer to youngsters Mary Ann Azevedo Houston Business Journal Construction is under way on a Hollywood Video Starlight Site on the ninth floor of Memorial Hermann Children's Hospital, the only such site in Texas, hospital officials say. The home video retail chain and sister Hollywood Entertainment subsidiary Game Crazy are partnering with the Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation "to enhance the healing environment of the hospital." "A patient's attitude can play an intangible but profound role in the healing process," said Steve Allen, CEO of Memorial Hermann Children's Hospital. "Bringing a little fun to the hospital experience makes it less stressful for our patients and their families, and we are grateful to Hollywood Video, Game Crazy and Starlight Starbright for this contribution." When completed, the Starlight Site will include a movie theater, video game and computer stations, a lounge area, and a large, colorful fish tank. Hollywood Video will contribute more than $150,000 to develop the site, while its building-trade vendors will donate more than $100,000 in labor, materials and supplies. The company will keep the site stocked with popular movies that can be accessed any time, and local employee volunteers will host group movie nights for patients twice a month. The Memorial Hermann site is one of eight the company is building in various cities. Game Crazy also recently donated $5,000 worth of consoles and games for patients. Memorial Hermann Children's Hospital volunteers pitched in another $3,000 to purchase carts and televisions, so 15 mobile game units can be wheeled from room to room. Local Game Crazy employees also volunteer twice a month at the hospital, running video game tournaments for patients. Craig Cordola, assistant vice president of Memorial Hermann Children's Hospital, says the site will be about 800 to 900 square feet and will also include an Internet cafe. The site should be completed by the end of the year or early January, he says. Each year 37,000 sick and injured children receive treatment at Memorial Hermann Children's Hospital.
