The Bellville Medical Heart is below new administration.
As of the beginning of the brand new yr, the hospital has joined MidCoast Well being System and is now known as MidCoast Medical Heart – Bellville.
The choice for MidCoast to function the hospital was formalized after months of negotiations. The Bellville Hospital District Board and Bellville Medical Heart Board each voted unanimously to approve the transition.
MidCoast Well being System relies in El Campo. Along with Bellville, MidCoast runs hospitals in El Campo, Palacios and Llano. Additionally it is within the technique of opening a hospital early this yr in Trinity.
The Bellville Medical Heart beforehand had a administration settlement with ERH extending again to March 2019. In October, the Bellville Hospital District Board introduced the termination of the settlement. Hospital District Board President Mike Koehn stated in December that bills have been trending above income, and eight positions on the medical heart had been eradicated.
Earlier than ERH, the hospital was a part of the St. Joseph’s Well being System beginning in 2013, after previously being the Bellville Normal Hospital. After turning into CHI St. Joseph in 2016, plans have been introduced in February 2019 to finish their hospital operations. The hospital then partnered a month later with ERH.
