HOUSTON, June 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AMD Global, LLC (AMD) announced today that the company had acquired The Heights Hospital and that major renovations are underway with anticipated completion in mid-September.
Dr. Dharmesh Patel, CEO of AMD, confirmed that in March his company partnered with Medical Center Developments to purchase the 192,077 square-foot, six-floor hospital, located on 3.94 acres at 1917 Ashland Street in the Heights, with the vision of transforming it into another healthcare jewel within the community.
The hospital, formerly operated by Select Specialty Hospitals, has been home to St. Joseph Medical Center, which will remain a significant anchor and tenant. "St. Joseph has been doing a phenomenal job and continues to operate here today," he said. "They are, and will continue to be, an important partner in our overall plan," he added.
That plan, according to Patel, includes attracting additional tenants and significantly expanding services to make The Heights Hospital a healthcare destination and centerpiece in the Heights. The expanded services will include labor & delivery, and a neonatal unit (NICU); pediatric offices; a full orthopedics center including spine, general orthopedics, and sports medicine and rehabilitation; as well as a wound care center. A full-service restaurant, called West 19th Grille, will be located within the hospital. Patel also confirmed that discussions are taking place with several different Independent Physician Associations (IPAs) and primary practice groups for possible office space within the hospital.
"By revitalizing this landmark, attracting the right tenants and expanding services, we are creating something of real significance with The Heights Hospital. We are looking forward to transforming this facility into one that truly reflects the individuality and spirit of The Heights and to bringing the residents who live there the high-quality healthcare they deserve," Patel said.
