HOUSTON — A big change is coming to the Texas Medical Center, the Shriners Hospital for Children will be closing that location and consolidating with the Galveston branch in 2021.

 

Mel Bower, Director of Marketing for Shriners, confirms the Houston Shriners hospital will consolidate with the Shriner’s hospital in Galveston. Bowers says they are consolidating to make services more efficient for patients, who he says shuttle back and forth between the hospitals.

 

Bowers says one reason the Galveston location was chosen is, “The presence of the burns center in Galveston was an important consideration.”

Shriners says they hope to bring as many of their current team as possible and that all services offered in the Med Center location will be offered in Galveston.

 

“We will continue to offer all of our existing services, the benefit is that now they will all exist under one roof,” Bowers said.

 

As for what will become of the building that one the Houston Shriners moves out, Bowers says they just don’t know yet.

I mean.... the only world I can think of to go Galveston instead of the med center is if you had a fat offer for your land.

The Galveston burns center is a big deal.  The move seems to make sense, if Shriner's had to choose one or another.  Galveston needs the Shriner's Hospital more than Houston does...So, I'm sorry to see Shriners Houston close, but I am happier that it is not Galveston's loss.
