The jobs, many of which are being transferred from the central business office in the Texas Medical Center, will be located at the site which formerly housed Christus-St. Catherine Hospital. Christus-St Catherine was acquired by Houston Methodist in 2014 and the campus is now known as Houston Methodist St. Catherine. Jobs relocating include administrative and professional roles.

City of Katy’s new $7.5M City Hall to open in April
The city of Katy is getting a new City Hall this year—a three-story 33,000-square-foot traditional style building that replaces the offices city staff now work in.
“We have carved a lot of these offices into spaces with two people,” Katy Mayor Fabol Hughes said of the current city offices. “This building, it’s so outdated. It’s falling apart. The [air conditioning] is out of date and not efficient.”
The new City Hall will feature what Hughes called a traditional style that fits in with the community. The building highlights include Roman columns, brickwork and a tower with three clocks facing to the south, west and east atop the structure.
