Breaking New Ground Project
The Memorial Hermann Health System is bringing its world-class, clinically integrated, patient-centered care to the Cypress area with the construction of a major medical campus — the centerpiece being a new, 80-bed, state-of-the-art hospital.
The $168 million construction project broke ground in January 2015. The campus is located on a 32-acre site on the northeast side of Highway 290 and Grand Parkway between Mason Road and Mueschke Road.
The new campus is part of Memorial Hermann’s commitment to providing residents in the Cypress area with the same high quality and safe patient care it offers throughout the Houston region.
Cypress is one of the fastest growing regions in the Greater Houston area. As the community continues to grow, so will its health needs. When this campus is completed, residents of the Cypress community will have immediate access to safe, high-quality patient care, as well as advanced services that only a clinically integrated, comprehensive health system can deliver.
The Cypress campus will be designed and built with a forward-looking focus, taking into consideration the area’s current population of more than 355,000 residents, and an expected growth of nearly 100,000 more people over the next decade.
Phase one of the construction project, scheduled to be completed in early 2016, will include a Medical Plaza comprised of primary care and specialty physician offices, as well as a Convenient Care Center with an emergency center, outpatient imaging and diagnostic laboratory, sports medicine and rehabilitation, as well as a dedicated breast center – The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Breast Care with Memorial Hermann.
Phase two construction occurs simultaneously and will be the construction of an 80-bed, acute care hospital with the ability to expand, slated for completion spring 2017. The hospital will include:
The Cypress campus master plan also includes the capacity to expand with additional patient bed towers and space for two additional medical office buildings to accommodate future growth.
“This new medical campus will give the Cypress area access to the vast Memorial Hermann network, as well as provide a place for medical professionals and the region’s top specialists to care for their patients closer to home,” says Scott Barbe, CEO, Memorial Hermann Cypress Market. “Any healthcare need will be expertly addressed, whether it’s a non-emergent outpatient visit or a procedure requiring inpatient care.”
