HOUSTON (July 28, 2015)

The fourth Convenient Care Center in the Memorial Hermann Health System will open Monday, August 3, in Sienna Plantation. A recent ribbon cutting and open house brought together a number of state and local leaders.

Greg Haralson, Sr. Vice President, CEO of Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital, along with state representative Ron Reynolds, Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce President, Keri Schmidt, Missouri City Mayor Allen Owen, were joined by leaders from Memorial Hermann for the official ribbon cutting.

“The Convenient Care Center is an extension of many of the high quality services Memorial Hermann is known for in one convenient location,” says Haralson. “The walk-in center will also allow for easy access and transfer to other Memorial Hermann hospitals should the patient require an even higher level of care.”

The 16,000 square foot facility will offer a full service, 24-hour emergency room, a full lab as well as breast screenings and imaging. Later this year, primary care physicians from the Memorial Hermann Medical Group will also see patients at the Convenient Care Center in Sienna Plantation.

The Convenient Care Center in Sienna Plantation will also offer a tomosynthesis unit for mammography screening. Breast tomosynthesis is a new, 3-D digital imaging technology that helps physicians to detect smaller tumors sooner, at the earliest stages of breast cancer.

Convenient Care Centers offer one-stop, highly coordinated access to an extensive array of Memorial Hermann services in a single location. Memorial Hermann currently operates Convenient Care Centers in Katy, Pearland and the Summer Creek area of Houston.

In addition to the 24-hour emergency room, the Memorial Hermann Convenient Care Center in Sienna Plantation will be open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and is located at 8780 Highway 6, Suite B, in Missouri City.
