CHI St. Joseph Health to Postpone Move of Women’s, Pediatric Services to College Station Hospital

(April 15, 2020 – Bryan, TX) CHI St. Joseph Health will postpone moving women’s and pediatric services to College Station Hospital, located at 1604 Rock Prairie Road, previously College Station Medical Center.

Earlier this year, CHI St. Joseph announced the decision to move women’s and in-patient pediatric services to College Station Hospital. At the time, a final move date had not been determined, as much planning needed to take place. However the expectation was that this move would occur sometime this summer.

Due to the challenges COVID-19 has created in the last month and the uncertainty with how long it will last, the decision has been made to postpone this move.

“We want to ensure this project has suitable planning so that we’re able to offer our patients the very best experience, and pausing until we can fully focus on that it is the best decision,” said Theron Park, CEO at CHI St. Joseph Health.

Once a new timeline for the move has been identified, we will communicate that with our team members, medical staff and the community.

CHI St. Joseph Health Encourages Brazos Valley to ‘Send Kindness’

Card generator allows public to send encouragement to patients and staff

Bryan, TX, April 2020 — As part of their mission to care for the whole person while creating healthier communities, CHI St. Joseph Health has released their new Send Kindness Card Generator, a way for people to share their love and support with patients and staff members in the health system’s Regional and College Station hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Family and friends of CHI St. Joseph Health Regional Hospital and College Station Hospital patients and employees have a choice of customizable cards on CHIStJoseph.org/SendKindness. After filling out the recipient’s information and adding a personalized message, these cards are printed out and delivered.

The health system’s visitor policies have changed recently to limit the virus’s potential to spread, meaning there is less physical interaction possible between people. While this change allows facilities to keep patients and staff safer during the pandemic, the Send Kindness Card Generator is a way to show some much needed human kindness in this time of social isolation. CHI St. Joseph Health is encouraging everyone to take part and spread joy as we work to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Particularly due to the dedication of our area’s healthcare workers, the health system is also encouraging messages to the hospitals’ staff as a whole. The system is inviting anyone who has received exemplary care from any of their hospitals or departments to send a card with their support, galvanizing our team as they bring hope and healing to the Brazos Valley region.
