St. Joseph Medical Center in the Heights opened as an extension of Houston’s first hospital – St. Joseph Medical Center in downtown Houston. Linked to the services and physicians of the main campus, St. Joseph Medical Center in The Heights was opened to serve the growing communities that had for too long been without healthcare at home. With the full complement of 800+ physicians from St. Joseph easily accessible, patients who choose their care at St. Joseph Medical Center in The Heights will experience the same quality care that the main campus has provided Houston residents for over 125 years.

For years, St. Joseph Medical Center in downtown Houston has worked with local physicians and others to design this hospital to best fit the needs of the community. We believe we have been successful and are proud to offer:
