  1. I was looking at the Standard Blue Book of Texas Houston Edition dated 1907-1908 and came across a few cool, old, hospitals. The book indicates an address of 602 Lamar Avenue. I went onto researching more and found an article in the newspaper The Houston Post dated November 27, 1903 that had an address of 810 Walker Avenue. I am not sure which one is accurate. Or perhaps there were was an earlier version of the sanitarium? For this thread, I will choose the Walker address since it's more concrete. Although, the other article has a photograph of the building, so that must be accurate too! Convenience and hope comforts. Trained nurses in attendance. Rates 2.00 to 5.00 per day. S.W. Telephone 1374. Ida J. Rudisill Sanitarium. Mrs. Ida J. Rudisill, Proprietous. 810 Walker Avenue Houston, Tex. I then found an article that states George Hermann and this person named "D.R." was interested in buying the hospital. A little confusing, to me, but this was one of the first Hermann Hospitals? I know that Hermann Hospital started out as a Baptist hospital in a downtown tower. So maybe this predates the big downtown hospital? wow!! From the book The Texas Gulf Historical and Biographical Record, Volume 45, November 2009: D.R. Approached Houston oilman and philanthropist George H. Hermann, who was interested in a hospital but not one controlled by Baptists. Timely assistance from a woman at First Baptist finally enabled Houston Baptists to move forward. For $18,000 D.R. Secured the Rudisill Sanitarium, an eighteen-bed facility in downtown Houston, from Mrs. Ida J. Rudisill. Rechristened the Baptist Sanitarium and Hospital, it was chartered in September 1907, the first such Baptist institute in Texas. D.R. Was named superintendent, but Mrs. Rudisill “was in reality the manager or the four years she remained with the institute,” giving the Baptists time to learn what they were doing.
  2. I was browsing the Houston Public Library Digital Archives and noticed a Hermann Hospital building that I was unfamiliar with. Thought I would share. November 1941.
  3. I was browsing the newspaper The Bellaire Texan dated December 3, 1986 and came across an article about a proposed replacement for the aging Memorial Hermann Robertson Pavilion. A replacement for RP has been known for nearly 20 years. I wonder the hold up? I'm guessing the MH board of directors/foundation does not want to demolish the historic building. Bernard Johnson, Inc. was the architect who designed the hospital. Very cool find! I love old TMC proposals.
  4. 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
  5. A friend forwarded this internal email sent to Memorial Hermann TMC employees from the CEO earlier this week.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital Announces $71.8 Million Campus Expansion Project https://www.memorialhermann.org/about-us/newsroom/press-releases/cypress-hospital-announces-campus-expansion-project HOUSTON (July 28, 2022) As the dynamic Cypress area continues to grow, Memorial Hermann Cypress Hospital is expanding to accommodate the community. The hospital has announced a $71.8 million expansion project which will add 40 beds, a second professional office building, a parking garage and additional surface parking. These expansions will bring an additional 185,000 square feet and over 500 parking spaces to the Memorial Hermann Cypress campus. In addition, Memorial Hermann Sports Park-Cypress will be a new sports medicine and human performance facility opening on the hospital campus. The facility is a collaboration between Memorial Hermann, Athlete Training and Health (ATH) and UT Physicians Orthopedics to provide a full range of medical care and athletic training for professional athletes, youth athletes and adults with orthopedic injuries.
  9. MH OPID CT Exchange. https://memorialhermann.org/locations/northeast A 255-bed facility, Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital has been caring for families in the Lake Houston and Kingwood area for more than 30 years, offering world-class care close to home. Its affiliated doctors span a wide variety of disciplines. Additionally, Memorial Hermann Northeast serves as the official healthcare provider to passengers traveling through Houston’s George Bush International Airport.
  10. Anyone remember details about this? I was trying to see if there were any concept renderings. This was going to be located to where the (now) the UT Research Park Complex is. All the TMC players were involved. This was the original TMC3 if you will. This project was proposed in 2001. I'll post a few articles for reference.
  11. This is the shopping center with Memorial Hermann and CHI St. Lukes at the intersection of Braeswood & Kirby. I had dinner here at Morningstar Thai. Great food and prices, but no alcohol.
  12. Noticed a renovation registered with the state this week.
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
  16. 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.

  18. 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/
  19. 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/
  20. 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
  21. 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.

  23. There's new construction by the Memorial Hermann TMC campus. Looks like it's an Infrastructure Building & Parking Garage. Having done some research, the garage is located at 1400 Ross Sterling Ave.
