HUMBLE, Texas — Memorial Hermann Health System plans to build its seventh convenient care center and further expand high-quality, patient-centered care throughout the communities it serves. The 45,000-square-foot Memorial Hermann Convenient Care Center in Kingwood, Texas is expected to be completed in fall 2016 and will join Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital and the Memorial Hermann Summer Creek Convenient Care Center in serving the greater Lake Houston area.
The two-story Kingwood Convenient Care Center will be located at Kingwood Drive and West Lake Houston Parkway, in the Main Street Kingwood Shopping Center. Lovett Commercial, the developer of the shopping center, will build the facility, which will provide one-stop, highly coordinated access to adult and pediatric primary care, specialty physicians, sports medicine and rehabilitation, outpatient imaging and lab services and a 24-hour emergency room.
Memorial Hermann’s Convenient Care Centers are designed to take the stress out of scheduling appointments for routine health needs by offering families options such as walk-in access and extended evening and weekend hours.
The Kingwood Convenient Care Center is modeled after sister facilities that are operational in Summer Creek, Pearland and South Katy, and facilities currently or soon to be under construction in Cypress, Sienna Plantation and Spring. Patients at the Memorial Hermann Convenient Care Center in Kingwood who need a higher level of care would be transferred to Memorial Hermann Northeast, Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center or Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital.
Construction of the Convenient Care Center in Kingwood is part of Memorial Hermann’s strategic growth initiative – Breaking New Ground – designed to meet current and future healthcare needs in the greater Houston region. The initiative also includes the construction of a medical campus in Pearland featuring a 64-bed hospital, and multi-million dollar expansions at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital and Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital.
