Memorial Hermann officially opened its 45,000-square-foot Convenient Care Center recently in Cypress. The facility provides highly coordinated access to adult and pediatric primary care via Memorial Hermann Medical Group, as well as specialty physicians, sports medicine and rehabilitation, lab services, outpatient imaging – including The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Breast Care with Memorial Hermann – and a 24- hour emergency center.
“Bringing access to quality healthcare in Houston’s communities is a priority for Memorial Hermann,” said Dan Wolterman, President and CEO of Memorial Hermann Health System. “The opening of our Convenient Care Center in Cypress is the first step to giving the growing community the ability to receive specialty care close-to-home.”
Located at 27700 Northwest Freeway near the Grand Parkway, the Convenient Care Center is 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 for primary care.
“Today marks a major milestone in our phased approach to bring unparalleled healthcare access to this community,” said Scott Barbe, CEO, Memorial Hermann Cypress. “Our Convenient Care Center offers flexibility to compliment today’s busy lifestyles in a single location, and we are honored to become a trusted partner for the residents of Cypress.”
The Convenient Care Center, housed on the first floor of the newly-opened Medical Plaza, is the first phase of Memorial Hermann’s $168 million medical campus in Cypress, which will be anchored by an 81-bed acute care hospital that is currently under construction. This development is part of Memorial Hermann’s growth initiative – Breaking New Ground – created to meet current and future healthcare needs in the greater Houston region.
Slated for completion in Spring 2017, the hospital will house eight operating rooms, a 16-bed intensive care unit, a neonatal intensive care unit, a cardiac catheterization lab, and a dedicated Memorial Hermann Life Flight® helipad, with room to expand.
Houston’s 12 county region has a projected five-year (2015-2020) population growth rate of 7.6 percent. The Cypress area alone has a projected population growth rate of more than 11 percent in the same time period. Cypress also is home to the three largest growing zip codes (77433, 77377, and 77499) as well as the three largest populated zip codes (77429, 77095, and 77433).
“As Cypress continues to grow so will Memorial Hermann,” added Barbe. The campus has the footprint to accommodate significant future growth, including two additional medical plazas and two additional patient bed towers, bringing the total bed count to more than 400 beds.
