Houston, TX (July 27, 2017) – CHI St. Luke’s Health (CHI St. Luke’s) and The Signorelli Company, a leading real estate development company headquartered in The Woodlands, have entered into an agreement to address healthcare needs for the growing Valley Ranch community in Northeast Houston.
Valley Ranch, a 1400 acre master-planned community, includes a variety of specialized section including a town center, an entertainment district, residential living, a commerce district and a medical district, known as Vivacity. Vivacity is a 186 acre area dedicated to preventative health, wellness, and personalized medicine initiatives. Vivacity is situated at I-69 (US 59) and the Grand Parkway, an area identified as a priority among the CHI St. Luke’s sub-markets.
Over the next year, CHI St. Luke’s and The Signorelli Company will explore how to best support and contribute to the vision of making world-class healthcare accessible and convenient in this growing market. This agreement allows us the opportunity for CHI St. Luke’s to be Vivacity’s first healthcare partner and establish a footprint in the area. As part of the due diligence process, CHI St. Luke’s will determine how to best integrate its expertise in planning and phasing for a broad range of healthcare services, and recruiting physician partners that will offer additional patient access points that align with the needs of the community.
CHI St. Luke’s leaders view this expansion as a means to ensure long-term growth for the health system, while sustaining and advancing its healing ministry to the communities it serves.
