The Christman Company acquires MEDCO Construction from Baylor Scott & White Health

Acquisition allows for expanded services and growth in Southwest Region

MEDCO, the construction arm of Baylor Scott & White, the largest not-for-profit healthcare system in Texas, had previously operated as an in-house construction partner for the System for more than 55 years. The unique collaboration resulted in some of the System’s, and the state’s, most innovative medical centers. 

With this acquisition, the former MEDCO staff joins forces with Christman, combining national-level expertise with long-standing local relationships. With more than $1 billion in annual revenue, Christman was seeking a strategic partnership in the region and together with Baylor Scott & White Health, determined this would be a good fit for both organizations.  

“The expansion of resources allows us to serve clients in sectors where Christman excels such as healthcare, corporate headquarters, higher education, and places of worship,” said Steven Roznowski, president and CEO of Christman. “Our new team members share Christman’s cultural foundations of integrity, safety and providing the highest value for clients. Together, we will deliver value through an extended network of national resources.”

At a recent celebration marking 2,000 days without a lost-time accident, Denward Freeman, who served as president at MEDCO said, “We are excited to join The Christman Company, with their dedication to safety and expertise in complex healthcare environments. This and other common values will allow our teams to serve our clients with quality and integrity.”

Chief Operating Officer at Baylor Scott & White, John McWhorter, added, “We are confident that Christman will advance MEDCO’s mission of offering exceptional services as a leader in construction.”

Christman’s expansive network of programs and services are immediately available and include self-perform and millwork skilled trades.
