KATY, TEXAS (January 25, 2017)

Fulshear Urgent Care rope cutting ceremonyMemorial Hermann has further expanded healthcare services in the Katy area with the opening of Memorial Hermann Urgent Care in Fulshear. The clinic represents yet another major investment made by Memorial Hermann in the Katy community over the last few years.

“The recent expansion of Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital and local openings of a Convenient Care Center and Urgent Care clinic demonstrate our commitment to the greater Katy community and our mission to offer health care solutions that fit everyone’s schedule and needs,” says Jim Parisi, Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital.

Located in the HEB shopping center near the intersection of S. Fry Road and FM 1463 at 5102 FM 1463, Suite 1200, the clinic provides walk-in care from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week. It is staffed by board-certified family medicine physicians Funke Agbasi, MD, Michael Nguyen, MD, and Ladan Pourmasiha, DO, who treat patients six months and older. The clinic also offers convenient access to x-ray and lab services.

“Memorial Hermann Urgent Care clinics provide on-demand healthcare that many people are looking for,” says David James, MD, Senior Vice President and CEO of Memorial Hermann Medical Group (MHMG). “The clinics provide coverage for the times you can’t get in to see your primary care physician, but don’t need to go into an emergency center.”

If your primary care physician is a member of the MHMG, records of 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.
