Memorial Hermann Health System is known for its world-class clinical expertise and patient-centered care. And it is growing to keep up with the increasing healthcare needs in the region.
In late July 2013, Memorial Hermann broke ground for a new medical complex in Pearland. The facility will include a convenient care center, scheduled to open in early 2014, that will provide one-stop, highly coordinated access to adult and pediatric primary care, a 24-hour emergency room, imaging and laboratory services.
The centerpiece of the new Campus will be a 64-bed acute care hospital, set to open in late 2015. It will feature an intensive care unit, operating rooms, cardiac catheterization labs, medical/surgical units, women’s services, sports medicine and rehabilitation.
“This new medical Campus gives us a wonderful opportunity to bring the expertise of our Memorial Hermann medical professionals and affiliated physicians, including some of the region’s top specialists, to the area,” says Dan Wolterman, president and CEO of Memorial Hermann Health System.
The new medical complex will benefit from integration within the larger Memorial Hermann system, where patients can be transported within minutes to Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital or Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, if a higher level of care is required. The new facility will be located on the 40-acre site that now houses an outpatient imaging center, diagnostic lab services and a medical office building.
Meanwhile, work continues on an Urgent Care Center and Multispecialty Clinic in Friendswood. The 9,000-square-foot facility will be fully equipped to treat minor illnesses and non-life-threatening injuries. The urgent care center will provide care for medical problems that need immediate – but not emergency – attention, such as minor sprains, small cuts, sore throats, fevers and ear infections.
The Friendswood facility also will provide primary care, occupational medicine, X-rays, labs, vaccines, school and sports physicals, and onsite prescriptions. These new services are in addition to the existing outpatient imaging and diagnostic lab services the clinic currently offers. The urgent care center is scheduled for completion in early 2014.
“The nurses and affiliated physicians who will staff both the Pearland and Friendswood facilities are the same professionals who provide high quality care to families in this area,” states Erin Asprec, CEO of Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital. “We’re all excited that they will be here to serve the needs of our community.”
The Friendswood facility is at 1505 East Winding Way Drive. Memorial Hermann Pearland will be located on the southbound side of Highway 288 near FM 518.
