About Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital
Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital opened in June 2017 as the eighth hospital in the Houston Methodist system. This 187-bed, 470,000-square-foot, full-service, acute care hospital offers many of the same services as our flagship hospital in the Texas Medical Center.

In September 2019, Houston Methodist The Woodlands broke ground on a $250-million expansion project that will add 100 beds, focused on medical/surgical and women’s services, and 10 operating rooms. It will also include the expansion of the endoscopy center, heart center, emergency center and diagnostic imaging department to include an enhanced neuro-diagnostic and interventional center. Completion is scheduled for early 2022.
