March 26, 2019

The tunnels Houston will soon be getting a new resident when the Kelsey-Seybold Clinic opens. Construction is scheduled to be completed this summer.

According to a news release, the new clinic will encompass 2,200 square feet in the Downtown Tunnels, beneath the Niels and Millie Esperson Buildings. The clinic will be located at 815 Walker, suite T-14A.

“Since 1975, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic has had a location in the downtown area. Eight years ago, we built a new clinic - Downtown at the Shops - to expand our services and specialties to meet the growing needs of our patients,” said Tony Lin, M.D., chairman and managing director of Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. “The addition of this new primary care location in the Downtown Tunnels will make it easier for individuals who work west of Main Street to walk to a Kelsey-Seybold provider.”

The Downtown Tunnels is a system of tunnels about 20 feet below downtown streets. It stretches for more than 6 miles with restaurants and retail.

The clinic hours will mirror sister clinic Kelsey-Seybold Clinic-Downtown at The Shops at 4 Houston Center. The clinic will be open 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Page was named the architect of this new location. A general contractor has not yet been selected.

Kelsey-Seybold Clinic was founded in 1949 by Dr. Mavis Kelsey in the Texas Medical Center. It now has more than 400 physicians and allied health professionals practicing at 20 locations in the Greater Houston area.
