Nobilis Health Corp is a healthcare development and management company that owns and manages acute-care and ambulatory facilities to deliver healthcare services. It is also involved in the development and management of ambulatory surgical centers in Dallas and Houston, TX as well as Scottsdale, AZ. This company is also involved in a contractual partnership with six other facilities in New Jersey, Tennessee, Minnesota, Michigan, Arizona, and Oregon. Nobilis Health’s goal is to focus on improving access to care and patient outcomes using low-cost outpatient settings and using minimally invasive procedures.
Nobilis Health operates five ambulatory surgery centers, one in Dallas, three in Houston, and shifts in Scottsdale Arizona. They also own and operate two imaging centers on nobilishealth.com, an acute-care hospital, and an urgent care clinic in Houston. Here is a list of the company’s health treatment centers:

The company recently changed its name in 2015 from Northstar to Nobilis Health on facebook. The name change was announced as a result of a necessary name change that was needed to continue the company’s expansion into the US market. Since there are also other companies using the name “Northstar “ on exchanges in the US, potential confusion is avoided with the company’s new name. The company will begin trading on the TSX under the name Nobilis Health Corp and symbol NHC.
In July 2015, the company acquired Victory Healthcare Plano Hospital. The new acquisition is considered a perfect fit for the company’s ongoing strategy of growth, physician partnership, and patient care. Jay Lindsey, former Director of Quality Management at Plano Specialty Hospital, was named as the facility’s new CEO.
Commitment to Patient Service
Nobilis Health has an ongoing commitment to patient service and considers medical education vital to their mission. Their philosophy is that patients should be respected and fully informed during each step of their journey during treatment by one of their physician partners. One of their leading physician partners is Dr. Darren Schumacher, who is board certified with Migraine Treatment Centers of America. Dr. Schumacher stresses the importance of physicians having the responsibility to respect patients and provide them with detailed facts to help them make the best decisions regarding their care. He also noted that this type of training should include education through videos and other content combined with research-based, empirical data.
