St. Lukes Original Hospital on Bertner


Recommended Posts

Noticed an older building on Bertner today. The building and parking lot was fenced with a tan screen.  Is there something happening here?

 

If you zoom in, it looks like the building has broken windows.

 

Sits behind their many campus at 6720 Bertner.

This is the original St Luke’s hospital building. I know Texas Children’s Hospital purchased the medical office tower seen behind this building, but I don’t know if they purchased the hospital complex as well.

  • Highrise Tower changed the title to St. Lukes Original Hospital on Bertner

Looks like the original hospital is slated for demolition.  Built in 1954. Here's a picture.

Quote

The original seven-story hospital building, built in 1954 and now used for administrative functions, will be torn down, and new facilities will be built on that space as well as possibly on other nearby undeveloped land owned by St. Luke’s, according to [St. Luke’s senior vice president David] Koontz.
