Houston Methodist Emergency Care Center to open July 15 in Missouri City
Missouri City residents will soon have convenient access to Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital‘s leading emergency care capabilities.
The new Houston Methodist Emergency Care Center will open July 15 in the heart of Missouri City at 8200 Texas 6, between the Sienna Plantation and Riverstone communities. The center will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week to treat patients of all ages who are ill or injured.
The center grand opening celebration and open house will be 5-7 p.m. July 10 and will include tours, refreshments, a free gift for attendees and door prizes.
The 9,600-square-foot facility includes 10 private treatment rooms, full-service X-ray, CT and ultrasound capabilities.
The center will be staffed by board-certified emergency medicine physicians specializing in emergency care from pediatric to geriatric patients, working alongside specially trained nursing and ancillary staff with extensive experience in emergency care.
“The new Houston Methodist Emergency Care Center gives Missouri City residents a first-class ER right in their own neighborhood,” said Chris Siebenaler, CEO of Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital. “Patients treated at the new center will have direct, expedited admission to Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital if needed, along with personal assistance from patient representatives in scheduling necessary follow-up appointments. And the center will accept all insurance plans that are in-network with Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital.”
“Our goal is to provide a streamlined, easy-to-navigate system for patients who enter the center,” said Dr. Scott Rivenes, emergency department medical director of Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital. “The new facility will enable us to quickly assess patients as they come in, enabling them to see a board-certified emergency medicine physician as efficiently as possible. Since we have onsite imaging and laboratory services, we have access to the full range of diagnostic services our physicians need without patients leaving the building.”
The new center is part of Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital’s $131 million expansion to better serve patients from Fort Bend and surrounding areas.
“Like many parts of Fort Bend, Missouri City has experienced tremendous population growth in recent years, and this new emergency center will definitely enhance our service to the community,” said Siebenaler.
