Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital celebrated another successful year of delivering Leading Medicine to the Fort Bend community and surrounding areas by hosting a special luncheon for the often “unsung heroes” of medicine – office managers, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, medical assistants and other professionals who keep physician offices running smoothly and provide the first level of patient care.

More than 175 people attended the event, which included brief presentations on Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital expansion plans, the new Headache Center and the new online scheduling tool, followed by a Q&A with hospital CEO, Chris Siebenaler.

“Physician office staff members play a critical role in every patient’s treatment process,” Siebenaler said. “We are honored to celebrate the hospital’s leading technology and services and to share our excitement for the future with them.”

Office staff members were pleased to learn that Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital offers online appointment scheduling for imaging service and has opened a Headache Center. They were also excited to hear about the hospital’s expansion plans which include the following:
