KATY, TEXAS (May 12, 2016)

Fulshear Urgent Care ConstructionMemorial Hermann is announcing plans to open Memorial Hermann Urgent Care in Fulshear in early 2017.

The new Memorial Hermann Urgent Care in Fulshear will be staffed with board-certified family medicine physicians from the Memorial Hermann Medical Group (MHMG) who will provide walk-in care for non-life-threatening health conditions. The 2,847 square-foot Urgent Care will also offer x-ray and lab services and join HEB as part of a new shopping center currently under construction at the intersection of FM 1463 and Fulshear Bend Drive.

“We’re pleased to bring this new level of care to the greater Katy area,” says Jim Parisi, Sr. Vice President and CEO, Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital. “Our community is growing rapidly and families need quick, safe, high quality care that’s convenient and close to home. In addition, our Urgent Care will provide an affordable entry point to the full array of healthcare services offered by Memorial Hermann.”

The new Urgent Care will offer residents of Fulshear and Katy the ease and convenience of extended medical care and will serve as an extension of a primary care physician’s office.

“The addition of Memorial Hermann Urgent Care will provide Katy, Fulshear and surrounding communities every level of care offered by Memorial Hermann,” says Jennifer Zimmerman, Vice President of Operations at Memorial Hermann Medical Group. “Medical needs don’t always fit into a 9 to 5, Monday through Friday schedule. Memorial Hermann Urgent Care will serve Cinco Ranch, Cross Creek Ranch, Firethorne and surrounding communities with safe, affordable, convenient healthcare seven days a week.”

If your primary care physician is a member of the MHMG, your Memorial Hermann Urgent Care visit will be placed in your Memorial Hermann electronic health record. This will allow your MHMG primary care provider to easily review your Memorial Hermann Urgent Care records during any follow up appointments.

Memorial Hermann Urgent Care in Fulshear will open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week for walk-in access and will be located at 5102 FM 1463, Katy, Texas, 77494.
