Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital is expanding its presence across the Bay Area by opening two new emergency care centers.


The Houston Methodist Emergency Care Centers – in Deer Park and League City – will make it easier and more convenient for residents to receive high-quality, expert treatment from board-certified emergency care physicians.


“Many people put off seeking critical medical care because they are worried about long waits in the emergency room,” said Dan Newman, CEO of Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital. “These new emergency care centers will bring Houston Methodist quality closer to where residents live and work and enable us to offer a more streamlined process for serving people with acute medical needs.”


The emergency care center in Deer Park, located at 3701 Center Street, allows Houston Methodist Clear Lake to expand its footprint north of the hospital campus to better serve those communities, and will open before the end of this year.


The emergency care center in League City will be located at the corner of S. Egret Bay and Highway 96, approximately one mile away from the Houston Methodist physician clinic in Tuscan Lakes. The emergency care center is slated to open by the end of 2021.


“Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital is in a state of growth and expansion, both on our main campus and in our surrounding communities,” said Newman. “We are excited to expand our emergency care services into Deer Park and League City. Having a hospital-affiliated emergency care center close by is a tremendous benefit for the community.”


The two new centers will be open 24 hours a day, offering the full services of a hospital emergency room, including onsite laboratories; X-ray, CT and ultrasound capabilities; and private treatment rooms. They will be staffed around-the-clock by board-certified emergency care physicians and experienced, highly trained nurses. Both centers will be capable of treating both minor and life-threatening emergencies for patients of all ages.
