The Loneliest Doctor in Houston

River Oaks Physician Plaza

Medistar’s brand-new River Oaks Physician Plaza adjacent to the just-shuttered River Oaks Hospital has just one tenant, reports Monica Perin in today’s Houston Business Journal:

The 105,000-square-foot, five-story River Oaks Physician Plaza was intended to house offices for River Oaks Hospital physicians as well as a sports medicine center, sleep lab and an endoscopy and pain management center, all operated by River Oaks Hospital, which was originally set to lease space in the building. . . .

But, according to Dr. Leroy Sterling, a physician investor in River Oaks Hospital, there is currently only one tenant — a physician — in the building.

Colliers is now trying to lease the building to commercial tenants. Space is listed at $21 a square foot, triple net. The building has been renamed River Oaks Plaza.

  • It is sad to know two Houston landmarks soon will be gone. I have many memories of the St. Luke’s Hospital built in 1954. When I worked at M. D. Anderson Hospital across the street, we office workers occasionally would have lunch in the St. Luke’s cafeteria, which had excellent food. After dealing with cancer patients all day, it was refreshing to watch the new babies being taken home from St. Luke
    s It also is sad to learn Twelve Oaks Hospital in the River Oaks area is out of business. A friend was a patient there following an auto accident, and I believe he received excellent care at Twelve Oaks.
