It won’t be long now before Pearland gets its new $80 million Memorial Hermann Hospital.
That’s the word from Memorial Hermann Southeast CEO Kyle Price, who expects the 64-bed, acute care facility to open in early 2016.
Speaking at a recent media luncheon at his southeast Houston hospital in the South Belt area, Price explained that the new medical facility is an expansion of the recently opened Memorial Hermann Convenient Care Center, which offers one-stop, highly coordinated access to adult and pediatric primary care and a 24-hour emergency center.
Construction of the Pearland hospital is moving right along, he said, and, when finished, will have operating rooms, cardiac catheterization labs, medical and surgical units, specialty physicians, women’s services, comprehensive radiology and laboratory services, wellness and prevention care, sports medicine and rehabilitation.
Other features include:
- A Memorial Hermann Life Flight® helipad
- 17-bed emergency center (three trauma/critical, 12 exam, two isolation)
- Convenient online scheduling
- An intensive care unit
- A second medical office building (100,000 square feet, four stories)
- Board-certified physicians offering a full range of medical services, specializing in Internal
- Medicine, Family Practice and Pediatrics
Price also highlighted some of the recent accomplishments of the 292-bed Memorial Hermann Southeast — which first opened in 1963 and came to the South Bend area in 1986 — such as the new Convenient Care Center in Pearland, the recent opening of Memorial Hermann’s first Urgent Care Center at 1505 Winding Way in Friendswood and the new 3,500-sq. ft. Alvin site under construction at Highways 6 and 35 and expected to open this fall with two Primary Care physicians and one Advanced Practice provider.
The 292-bed Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital recently has also invested some $14 million in renovation and improvements, he added.
