HOUSTON – HCA has agreed to purchase three hospitals in Houston from Tenet Healthcare and another Houston-area hospital from Community Health Systems.

The agreement with Tenet includes 423-bed Houston Northwest Medical Center, 181-bed Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital and 444-bed Park Plaza Hospital.
