FilioScotia Posted June 21, 2018 Share Posted June 21, 2018 (edited) Southmore Hospital was on Southmore near the intersection with Pasadena Blvd, formerly Tatar Street. It's still there under the name Pasadena Health Center. Pasadena General was about a mile north of there on Pasadena Blvd (Tatar) a block north of Thomas St. It has changed hands several times over the years, most recently in 2012 when Pristine Healthcare LLC bought it with grand plans. Here's how the Houston Chronicle reported it in August of 2012: "Pasadena city officials are celebrating the arrival of Pristine Hospital which is set to take over the old Kindred Hospital building located at 1004 Seymour St. (a street that crosses Pasadena Blvd) City officials indicated the renovated 110,000 square-foot hospital facility will bring 150 new jobs to the city within six months and another 150 over the next three years. The deal for the 32-bed acute care hospital was inked after Pristine Healthcare LLC met with the Pasadena Second Century Corporation (PSCC) Board of Directors. The board eventually offered a $150,000 incentive to win the development away from the Texas Medical Center. The incentive will be paid based on the completion of certain job creation benchmarks and will be used to fund building requirements mandated by the American with Disabilities Act and asbestos removal. The healthcare company is planning to invest $7 million to renovate the structure. Pristine Healthcare currently operates two outpatient psychiatric facilities in west Houston but plans to headquarter at the new Pasadena facility, which has been vacant for two years." It appears that 7 million and all those hopes went down the drain. Google Maps Street View taken two years ago shows Pristine Hospital is closed and boarded up again, probably for good. https://email@example.com,-95.2011789,3a,60y,139.31h,86.73t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sCXtFQT8c6ukulBd6rPjVvQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en Edited June 21, 2018 by FilioScotia clarify location 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
