SUGAR LAND, TEXAS (July 09, 2015)

Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital is being recognized as one of the 100 great community hospitals in the United States by Becker’s Hospital Review. This is the fourth year Memorial Hermann Sugar Land has earned this distinction.

“We’re honored to be considered one of the great community hospitals in the country,” says Greg Haralson, Sr. Vice President, CEO, Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital. “Our team takes great pride in providing high quality care to our patients while playing an active role outside our walls in the community we serve.”

The hospitals featured on the list of 100 great community hospitals have fewer than 550 beds. The Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on various rankings and awards, including those from iVantage Health Analytics, Truven Health Analytics, Healthgrades and CareChex.

Earlier this year Memorial Hermann Sugar Land became the first Houston area hospital to be awarded the Texas Award for Performance Excellence (TAPE) from the Quality Texas Foundation. The award recognizes strong dedication to quality and high performance.

Memorial Hermann Sugar Land is currently undergoing a $93 million expansion that will add a new 100,000 square foot medical plaza and a 155,000 square foot patient tower. The medical plaza is scheduled for completion by December 2015 and the patient tower is targeted for completion in the summer of 2016.
