A second Memorial Hermann Convenient Care Center recently opened in Pearland, designed to meet the demands of a rapidly growing population with one-stop, coordinated access to a broad array of healthcare services in a single location.
Specifically, it provides the Greater Pearland area with both adult and pediatric primary health care, lab services, comprehensive radiology services, wellness and prevention services, and a 24-hour emergency room.
Representatives from the Memorial Hermann Health System, Pearland’s City Council and mayor, the Pearland Chamber of Commerce, Pearland ISD and other city, state and county officials joined Pearland business and community leaders to mark the facility’s opening with a special ceremony on March 6.
“Pearland is the third largest city by population in the Gulf Coast area and the second fastest growing city in the state of Texas, and our citizens will now have immediate access to Memorial Hermann’s world-class, patient-centered care,” said Tom Reid, mayor of Pearland.
“Pearland is a great city to live, work and raise a family. Our community and the surrounding region only grow stronger with partners like Memorial Hermann who are committed to advancing the health of our residents,” said State Representative Ed Thompson.
The center is designed to take the stress out of scheduling appointments for routine health needs by offering families convenient options such as walk-in access and extended evening and weekend hours.
For more urgent needs, the Center’s 24-hour, state-of-the-art Emergency department is staffed by board-certified emergency medicine physicians affiliated with Memorial Hermann, and by nurses with special training in emergency care. Patients in need of higher levels of care will be transferred to Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital or Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center.
“The Convenient Care Center is ushering in a new and transformative healthcare model for the Houston region. One that meets families where they are, offering high-quality, safe and convenient access to care,” said Dan Wolterman, president and chief executive officer of Memorial Hermann.
“Memorial Hermann is proud to be an active member of the Pearland community,” added Erin Asprec, chief executive officer of Memorial Hermann Southeast. “Since we opened our doors in February, residents have a one-stop center where they can access an array of healthcare services under one roof, from an appointment with their primary care physician, to laboratory services, imaging services and even emergency services if needed.”
The new Center is located in the Memorial Hermann Pearland Medical Complex at 16100 South Freeway, on the southbound side of Highway 288 near FM 518. The Complex will also be home to a 64-bed acute care hospital, set to open in 2015.
