In September of 1936, Franciscan Sisters from Sylvania, Ohio purchased the hospital in Bryan and renamed it St. Joseph Hospital. Seventy-five years later, St. Joseph Health System has expanded to serve a 7 county region in the Brazos Valley with multiple hospitals and patient care facilities. While the health system has grown, the mission of the Sisters remains constant - provide excellent healthcare to all out of reverence for the dignity of every person.
On Thursday, September 13th, St. Joseph will partner with KBTX News 3 to broadcast the second "Legacy of Healing" telethon in celebration of the health system's 76th anniversary. Join KBTX and community sponsors in supporting St. Joseph on this special day. Donors may designate the St. Joseph hospital of their choice when making a gift.
