CHI-St. Joseph And Texas A&M Expand Their Business Relationship

The year after Texas A&M and the CHI St. Joseph health system entered a business relationship, it expands to include Aggie athletics.

This is the second year that CHI is providing training for A&M medical students, sharing the branding of primary care clinics, and providing medical benefits for A&M employees.

CHI-St. Joseph president Theron Park says they meet weekly with representatives of both A&M athletics and A&M’s health group to best manage resources.

Park says CHI-St. Joseph benefits by being part of the CommonSpirit Health corporation, which has sister institutions in other markets that also have relationships with university health science centers, university athletic departments, and professional sports teams.
