League City got its first full-service hospital Saturday, June 4, when the University of Texas Medical Branch — UTMB Health — opened its new $82 million facility, complete with inpatient and emergency care at its League City Campus at Victory Lakes, where the Gulf Freeway intersects with Highway 646.
Offering advanced health care to patients from throughout the region, in a soothing, healing environment designed by patients, families and staff, each private, state-of-the-art patient room supports a team-based, patient- and family-centered approach to care, UTMB officials said, adding that the League City facility is a master-planned campus and an extension of the UTMB Galveston Campus.
Among the services offered, the site features exceptional care for mothers and their healthy newborns in spacious Labor, Delivery and Recovery rooms. Here, families stay in the same room throughout their birthing experience.
In addition, athletes, children, active adults and seniors will benefit from a newly relocated Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation clinic, offering customized care from certified experts for a wide range of conditions. Personalized treatment plans include using the latest equipment and therapies, such as a special indoor turf field.
A 24-Hour Emergency Department is equipped with CT, X-Ray, ultrasound, and MRI capabilities, full diagnostics lab and respiratory services, as well as a telemetry monitoring system, enabling patients to have freedom of mobility.
The League City Campus had its start in May 2010, when UTMB Health opened the well-received Specialty Care Center at Victory Lakes, offering outpatient specialty care and surgical services in a modern two-story, 110,000 square feet complex.
Additional patient floors and a second patient tower will include intensive care units, expanded medical and surgical specialty care and expanded procedural and diagnostic care areas.
