Residents of Fort Bend and surrounding areas are invited to an open house and tour of Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital’s expanded women’s services on Thursday, July 18 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The event will showcase the hospital’s $60 million investment in its women’s services center of excellence, a project that includes construction of a new three-story building and renovation of existing facilities.
The new building connects to the Sweetwater Pavilion, the Cancer Center and Medical Office Building 2 and includes the Childbirth Center and Breast Care Center all in one convenient location.
The first floor of the new building houses a relocated, expanded Breast Care Center, complete with state-of-the-art imaging technologies and a calm, comfortable, welcoming interior. The second and third floors are the remodeled and expanded Childbirth Center.
The Childbirth Center offers a patient and family centered experience that now includes more spacious birthing rooms, additional operating rooms for cesarean sections, mother baby rooms, expanded Level II continuum care and well-baby nurseries. This expansion will bring us closer to opening a level III neonatal intensive care unit, which will be the first in Fort Bend County.
“Our new women’s services center of excellence not only expands our labor and delivery capabilities — including the addition of a much-needed Level III NICU for the community — but it also makes it possible for our doctors and staff to collaborate more effectively, especially in the areas of breast and cancer care,” said Chris Siebenaler, regional senior vice president and CEO of Houston Methodist Sugar Land.
“This is an important step forward for our hospital and for our patients. We invite everyone to come see the facility up close and learn about the women’s services we provide.”
