As Bay Area Regional Medical Center, a privately owned hospital, has announced its closure today, the leaders at HCA Healthcare’s affiliated Clear Lake Regional Medical Center are collaboratively working with their counterparts at the neighboring hospital to offer assistance at this difficult time. “We are expecting the arrival of several patients from Bay Area as many of the physicians who practiced there also are on staff at Clear Lake Regional Medical Center. As one of the region’s leading providers, we offer all the same specialties of care making it a logical and easy transfer for patients,” said Todd Caliva, CEO of Clear Lake Regional Medical Center.

Additionally, HCA Healthcare’s Gulf Coast Division will hold a job fair next week for any of those displaced by this closure who may be interested in opportunities at one of HCA’s 14 hospitals here in Houston. The fair will be held 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Monday, May 7, and Tuesday, May 8 at the Searcy Auditorium on the first floor of Clear Lake Regional Medical Center's Heart and Vascular Hospital, 495 Medical Center Blvd, Webster, TX. 

There will be representatives from all of HCA Gulf Coast Division south hospitals including Bayshore Medical Center, Clear Lake Regional Medical Center, Mainland Medical Center, Pearland Medical Center, along with the HCA Gulf Coast Division Talent and Acquisition team.
