PEARLAND, Texas, March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The cranes and construction crews are gone, and in their place is the new, Memorial Hermann Pearland Hospital – a 250,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art healthcare facility that ushers in a higher level of quality and safe care to the Pearland community.
The hospital, along with the Convenient Care Center and adjoining medical office buildings, make up a 40-acre, comprehensive medical campus. Memorial Hermann Pearland becomes the 14th hospital in the Memorial Hermann Health System.
"This is an exciting time for us as we open our hospital and I say our hospital because many of our employees, including myself, live in Pearland," says Mario Garner, Sr. Vice President and CEO, Memorial Hermann Pearland. "We want Memorial Hermann Pearland to quickly become the hospital of choice for the residents of Pearland, Alvin, Angleton, Manvel and surrounding communities."
With its 64 beds, Memorial Hermann Pearland offers a number of high-quality services and specialties, including orthopedics and sports medicine, neurology, general surgery, heart and vascular, labor and delivery, gastroenterology and urology.
As an added amenity, Pearland Café, located inside Memorial Hermann Pearland, is open to the public serving breakfast from 7:00 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. and lunch from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. daily. While at the hospital, patients and guests can also view Pearland's historical timeline located just off the hospital's main lobby. The timeline, which was developed in coordination with the Pearland Historical Society, illustrates the history of Pearland dating back to the early 1800s.
"We wanted our patients and their families to walk through our doors and into a warm, welcoming environment," says Garner. "The unique architectural design of the hospital - which includes high ceilings and a lot of natural light – promotes a comforting healing environment for all. Equally important, the new hospital offers advanced, state-of-the-art technology to expertly address any healthcare need of the patient."
The medical campus will offer additional benefits as part of the Memorial Hermann Health System. For example, if a patient arrives at Memorial Hermann Pearland in need of a higher level of care, they may be transferred to Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital or Memorial Hermann LifeFlight® can quickly and safely transport patients to Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center or Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital.
Memorial Hermann Pearland is located at 16100 South Freeway on the southbound side of Highway 288 near FM 518.
