Along with the East Montgomery County Improvement District (EMCID), Kelsey-Seybold announced it had officially closed on 5.5 acres of land recently along the northbound side of Hwy. 59, just north of Northpark Drive.
"First and foremost, we want to thank those who signed the petition to change the deed restrictions on the property that allowed Kelsey-Seybold to acquire this parcel of land," said EMCID President and CEO Frank McCrady. "We had an overwhelming response from homeowners and property owners who were excited to have a premier healthcare facility closer to home. Because the property is situated within the city of Houston's extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ), the petition was then submitted to the city to lift the deed restrictions and then sent back to Montgomery County for approval. It was important for the property owners to agree with a care center that benefits this area and meets the community's needs."
"We chose this site mainly because of accessibility and visibility," said Nicholas Ro, Chief Legal and Strategic Planning Officer for Kelsey-Seybold. "It is centrally located to Kingwood and the many growing communities of East Montgomery County. Being right off the freeway, the new clinic will be visible and convenient for patients. And our employees will enjoy the easy access to shopping and restaurants."
According to Kelsey-Seybold, the new clinic will be nearly 55,000 square-feet, almost 3 times as big as the original Kingwood clinic. This will allow Kelsey-Seybold to offer patients access to expanded services in primary care including internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics and obstetrics/gynecology.
"We look forward to providing the full range of outpatient services - primary care, specialty care, pediatrics, MRI, CT, pharmacy, and more - all in one convenient location," added Ro.
The new clinic will also offer new diagnostic services, 3D (Tomosynthesis) digital mammography, cardiac stress testing and will also include mobile CT and MRI. The clinic will continue to offer X-ray, DEXA and ultrasound testing.
The facility is expected to open in 2020.
Once completed, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic - Kingwood will be located at 25553 U.S. Highway 59 near E. Memorial Dr.
Kelsey-Seybold representatives along with EMCID and a few others will celebrate the official groundbreaking ceremony sometime in December.
We recently got a letter explaing this. I'm sorry that they won't be in the back of Kingwood, but I wouldn't rebuild at their old location either. It will still beat having to drive to the Summer Creek location on the Beltway!
