CHI St. Luke’s Health Announced as the First Partner in the new Vivacity Medical District at Valley Ranch

August 01, 2017

CHI St. Luke’s Health and The Signorelli Company, a leading real estate development company based in the Woodlands, have entered into a partnership to serve the healthcare needs of the rapidly growing Northeast quadrant of Houston.  Those healthcare needs will be centered within “Vivacity” a 186 Medical and Wellness District, located  in  Valley Ranch, a 1,400 acre Mixed-Use Development at the intersection of Grand Parkway and I-69 in Northeast Houston.

The “Vivacity”  Master Plan calls for over  2.5 million square feet of health, wellness and life science facilities along with hospitality, retail and other conveniences collectively creating a sense of place for the health care community that is quite rare.  The desired facilities  will encompass a full range of services for health providers, research institutions, physicians and companies focused on health, wellness and life science initiatives.  The collective effort,  integrating world-class healthcare and advanced technologies will offer a unique environment where the next generation of healthcare can be realized.  Pedestrian friendly amenities such as trails, 10-acre Central Park, Lakes and Fountains will  all set the tone for the district and are an extension to the already wonderful amenities at Valley Ranch.   

“Vivacity is focused on becoming the destination where emerging Preventative Wellness and Personalized Medicine will be brought to the individual in a unique, patient-friendly environment,” said Tom Wittenberg of The Signorelli Company.  “Vivacity will leverage its connected campus, world-class health partners, academic research, and clinical services in collaboration with industry technology partners to promote improved health outcomes in a single, convenient campus.”

“We are excited to have CHI St. Luke’s on board,” stated Danny Signorelli, CEO of Signorelli Company.   “Our partners for Vivacity are critical to its success and to start off with CHI St. Luke's on day 1 speaks volumes for the project concept and the opportunity to make a meaningful impact in Health Care.” Over the coming months, CHI St. Luke’s and Signorelli will work together in creating services for the broad range of healthcare needs in this rapidly growing quadrant of Houston.  Those plans will integrate how best to phase, collaborate and scale with key companies, institutions and physician partners being recruited into the Vivacity Medical District.
