Breaking New Ground Project
Memorial Hermann has begun construction of a $116 million hospital to expand its recently opened Convenient Care Center, which now offers one-stop, highly coordinated access to adult and pediatric primary care, and a 24-hour emergency room.
Next to the Memorial Hermann Imaging Center, the existing medical office building, and a second medical office building under construction, Memorial Hermann Pearland Hospital will offer an intensive care unit, operating rooms, cardiac catheterization labs, medical and surgical units, specialty physicians, women’s services, comprehensive radiology and laboratory services, wellness and prevention care, and sports medicine and rehabilitation.
The new hospital will include advanced equipment and state-of-the-art technology to expertly address any healthcare need, from a quick, non-emergent, outpatient visit to a procedure requiring specialized inpatient care. The medical Campus will offer additional benefits as part of the Memorial Hermann Health System: Patients can be transported within minutes to Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital, Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center or Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital by Memorial Hermann Life Flight helicopter, if a higher level of care is needed.
With infrastructure in place to grow to 128 beds in the next five years, Memorial Hermann Pearland Hospital has the potential to employ more than 450 people in the near future.
“Pearland is the fastest-growing community in the Greater Houston area and the second in Texas,” said Erin Asprec, Regional President of Memorial Hermann Health System’s South Region. “When completed, Memorial Hermann Pearland Hospital will provide community members with immediate access to Memorial Hermann’s high-quality, patient-centered health care and some of the region’s top medical experts, right in their neighborhood.”
The 2010 U.S. Census Bureau listed Pearland at number 15 of the fastest-growing large cities in the country (population 50,000 or greater). With a 3.8 percent population growth from 2012 to 2013, the city’s population has already passed the 100,000 mark. Memorial Hermann Pearland Hospital will help meet the demand for quality healthcare in this rapidly growing community. Construction has already begun and is expected to be completed by early 2016. The new hospital facilities will include:
