Providers partner on microhospitals to expand access to care

May 18, 2017

Microhospital specialist Emerus and Memorial Hermann Health System have announced a new joint venture partnership through which the Emerus facilities in the Houston area will operate under the Memorial Hermann name, according to an article on the Healthcare Finance News website.

The partnership also creates the potential to open more facilities throughout the Greater Houston area, the article said.

Emerus opened its first microhospital in the area 11 years ago, followed by a second facility.

Until now, the two Houston locations were the only Emerus facilities not affiliated with a major health system. The addition of the two hospitals will bring Memorial Hermann's emergency care network to 19 locations, including acute care facilities, convenient care centers and a free-standing emergency room.
