Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital employees recently celebrated the opening of the hospital’s new six-story patient tower.
A ribbon-cutting and blessing ceremony were held to mark the launch of the new Brazos Pavilion, which will house 104 patient care beds, bringing the hospital’s total bed count to 347.
Brazos Pavilion’s 20-bed intensive care unit recently opened, and build-out for an additional 56 medical/surgical beds will be completed in May. An additional 28 beds will be added based on demand from our community.
“The opening of the new Brazos Pavilion is the culmination of our $131 million expansion program that began in 2013,” said Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital CEO Chris Siebenaler. “We are proud of this significant investment in the Fort Bend community and thrilled with our expanded ability to serve our patients.”
In addition to the Brazos Pavilion, the expansion program added an 8,900-squarefoot emergency center in Missouri City; a 75,000-square-foot facility for Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine; and a 20,000-square-foot Heart & Vascular Center, adjacent to the hospital’s Emergency Department.
“Fort Bend’s medical needs continue to increase as the community grows,” says Siebenaler. “We’ve worked hard to expand our physical footprint and enhance our facilities. At the same time, we continue to make available the latest, most sophisticated and complex procedures to our patients with the support of our medical staff.”.
