Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital began groundbreaking on a new 9,600-square-foot emergency care center on Highway 6 in Missouri City, between the Sienna Plantation and Riverstone communities—signifying their first development in Missouri City.  The facility is scheduled to open in summer 2014, and will house 10 treatment rooms and the latest technology in diagnostic imaging equipment.

The opening of the emergency care center will improve access to emergent care for Missouri City residents while also offering the latest and most sophisticated services and technology possible.  The new center will also offer residents faster access to inpatient care at the main hospital campus, if needed.

“This is an exciting development because it gives us a physical presence in the heart of the fast-growing Missouri City community,” said Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital CEO Chris Siebenaler.  “The new emergency care center will give Missouri City residents a first-class medical facility within minutes of their homes.”

The emergency care center is just one of five major projects planned between now and summer 2014 that will expand the hospital’s physical footprint, significantly enhance its ability to serve patients across Fort Bend and surrounding counties and add a number of new jobs.
