Texas Health Resources operates, through its controlled affiliates, a health care system with services and facilities throughout north central Texas. Texas Health’s wholly-owned facilities include 13 acute care hospitals and a 10-bed long-term-care hospital. These tax-exempt hospitals have been recognized as exempt from federal taxes under the Code as organizations described in Section 501(c)(3), and a list of those hospitals can be found here.
In addition, Texas Health is the sole member or sole shareholder of certain other wholly-owned affiliates engaged in health care related activities including Texas Health Physicians Group, a Texas 5.01(a) physician organization and recognized as exempt from federal income taxes under the Code as an organization described in Section 501(c)(3).
Physicians on the medical staff of Texas Health’s hospitals practice independently and are not employees or agents of the hospital or Texas Health Resources. Texas Health and some of its controlled affiliates participate with physicians and non-physicians to operate hospitals and other health related ventures. Some of those ventures are considered a physician-owned hospital under federal law, and a list of those hospitals can be found here.
In addition, there are numerous other non-hospital related joint ventures included in Texas Health’s financial statements. Some programs and benefits described in this report may be applicable only to wholly-owned facilities and/or the employees of the wholly-owned affiliates.
