Breaking New Ground Project
Memorial Hermann, the state’s most recognized system for patient safety and quality awards, broke ground on a $93 million expansion of its Sugar Land campus on May 14, 2014.
The project will expand the hospital’s Emergency Center, enhance surgical capabilities, and build both a second medical plaza and a new six-story, 155,000-square-foot patient tower.
The first phase of construction, which was completed in May 2015, added eight beds to the hospital’s Emergency Center (for a total of 26 beds). It includes a new surgical suite with full digital integration, a 128-slice Computed Tomography (CT) scanner and the addition of a new Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine to the hospital.
Phase two involves the construction of a second Medical Plaza and patient tower. The new Medical Plaza will provide 100,000 square feet of combined physician offices, expanded sports medicine and rehabilitation services, and outpatient imaging.
Today, Memorial Hermann Sugar Land is an 81-bed hospital that works to care for patients of every age and need. Recently, Truven Health Analytics included Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital on its list of 100 Top Hospitals in the nation, and Becker’s Hospital Review named it one of the nation’s 100 Great Community Hospitals. In addition to these accolades, it has become a Center of Excellence for joint replacement and has launched a dedicated 24-hour Children’s Emergency Center. Memorial Hermann Sugar Land recently received the Texas Award for Performance Excellence, given by the Quality Texas Foundation to organizations that demonstrate high-quality work and performance.
The new medical plaza is set to be complete by December 2015. Construction on the East Tower began in January 2015 and will be completed by September 2016. All renovations are expected to be complete by December 2016. Improvements include:
“As the population in Sugar Land and Fort Bend County continue to grow, it is our responsibility to respond with additional infrastructure, new technology and a higher level of service.”
