Kelsey-Seybold Clinic breaks ground on new multi-specialty care center

October 12, 2018

Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, a system of healthcare clinics in the Greater Houston, recently broke ground on a new facility in Cy-Fair meant to replace their current Cy-Fair location.

A press release states that the new clinic, located at 13105 Wortham Center Drive, Houston, will be a 72,000-square-foot, $28 million clinic with room for 35 physicians. The old clinic, located at 13114 FM 1960 #200, Houston, will close once the new location opens, according to officials with Kelsey Seybold.

Cecilia Fowler, director of ambulatory care for Kelsey-Seybold, said the center is an expansion of the previous clinic. The new four-story building will be used for a variety of specialized care, including family medicine, internal medicine, OB/GYN, podiatry and more. The clinic will also have a pharmacy on-site, lab services, 3D mammography and other forms of medical and diagnostic testing.

“Where individuals and families work and live, there will always be a need for medical services,” she said. “Our new, stand-alone clinic will offer residents in the area expanded services, including more specialties and additional diagnostic capabilities.”

John Lyle, vice president of operations for Kelsey-Seybold, said the clinic’s construction is expected to be complete in Nov. 2019. The clinic is project to open in Dec. 2019.

“Predominantly [the new clinic] will allow us to provide more services locally versus our patients having to travel to one of our other locations,” he said. “At the same time, other patients in the area who need healthcare services, then we’ll have additional capacity to care of their specific need as well.

Carminia Davidson, M.D., managing physician for Kelsey-Seybold Clinic-Cypress, said the center needed to develop with the surrounding area.

“We have all seen the radical transformation the Copperfield and Cypress area has undergone in the 25 years since we first opened our clinic here,” she said. “Our new clinic will help us improve access, bringing new specialties and services to new and current patients in the Cypress area.”
