Pipeline Health LLC has acquired Texas Health Resources’ majority stake in 22 freestanding emergency rooms. The Los Angeles-based company will co-own the facilities with Lewisville, TX-based Adeptus Health, which previously had joint ownership with Texas Health Resources.
Adeptus Health is the nation’s largest operator of standalone emergency facilities, while Pipeline Health owns four hospitals in Southern California. The company entered the Texas market in December 2017, when it bought City Hospital at White Rock from Baylor Scott & White Health.
Pipeline Health will rename the 22 freestanding ERs as City Hospital Emergency Care. Spread across the Metroplex, they will initially focus on emergency care, but might add primary care in the future, according to Dr. Mark Bell, president and founder of Pipeline Health.
“Our goal is to improve the efficiencies of patient care, and create a one-stop shop for patients seeking acute care and outpatient care,” Bell said.
In addition to its North Texas acquisition, Pipeline Health also purchased three Chicago-area hospitals from Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare.
