SUGAR LAND, TEXAS (June 25, 2015)

Urgent Care FriendswoodA new level of healthcare from Memorial Hermann is coming to Friendswood and the surrounding communities. Memorial Hermann will open its first Urgent Care in Friendswood on June 24.

Memorial Hermann Urgent Care will provide walk-in care for non-life-threatening health conditions. No appointments are necessary. Memorial Hermann Urgent Care will be staffed with board-certified family medicine physicians from the Memorial Hermann Medical Group (MHMG).

“This will be the first of its kind for the Memorial Hermann system,” says Dr. David James, CEO, Memorial Hermann Medical Group. “Our community is growing and our healthcare needs are changing. We’re committed to meeting those changes by providing the appropriate level of high quality, convenient care to the communities we serve.”

Memorial Hermann is playing an active role in the growth of the Friendswood and Pearland areas. Memorial Hermann’s Convenient Care Center (CCC), located in Pearland, opened in February of last year. The CCC offers lab services, comprehensive radiology services and a 24-hour emergency room in one convenient location.

Meantime construction continues on the Memorial Hermann Pearland Hospital, set to open in early 2016. The 64 bed acute care hospital will feature a number of services including an intensive care unit, cardiac catheterization labs, medical/surgical units and women’s and neonatology services.

The 4,711 square foot Memorial Hermann Urgent Care will offer Friendswood and the surrounding communities the ease and convenience of extended medical care and serves as an extension of a primary care physician’s office.

“We’re proud to be an active member of our growing community in Friendswood,” says Kyle Price, Sr. Vice President, CEO, Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital. “Healthcare and healthcare needs are changing. Memorial Hermann Urgent Care will provide one more choice and a new level of care for Friendswood and surrounding communities.”

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.

Memorial Hermann Urgent Care is located at 1505 East Winding Way, Suite 112, in Friendswood and will treat patients as young as six months and older. Memorial Hermann Urgent Care will offer convenient hours from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., seven days a week.
