The Kelsey-Seybold Clinic Bay Area Campus along with a number of other clinics and hospitals in the area are continuing to expand their services and offerings.

The details

Following the January opening of Kelsey-Seybold’s new Building B, a 116,000-square-foot building offering additional primary and specialty services for patients, more expansion is on the way for the clinic later in 2024 and going into 2025.

Building C will open in 2025 and is expected to house the campus’s new cancer center, Kelsey-Seybold officials said in an email. Services will include:
  • Hematology oncology
  • Infusion therapy
  • Radiation oncology
That building will also eventually include PET and CT scanning, officials said.

Meanwhile, Kelsey-Seybold is eying the opening of a new ambulatory service center but does not have a specific timeframe on when that might open, officials said. The ambulatory surgery center's services will include:
  • Urology
  • Orthopedics
  • Ophthalmology
  • Gastroenterology
  • ENT
  • Plastic surgery
  • Gynecology
  • General surgery
  • Pain management
In addition to Building C opening soon, Building B in July will also begin to offer fluoroscopy, which x-rays moving parts inside of something, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s website.

What else?

The Bay Area is home to dozens of hospitals and clinics with many of them offering new services and programs as of late.

Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital recently partnered with Axiom Space to provide crews with training, and pre- and post-mission care, among other things, officials with the hospital said.

Meanwhile, the University of Texas Medical Branch has expanded its Care Closet to its League City and Clear Lake campuses, according to a June 12 news release from the university. The program provides clothing and hygiene products to patients and their family members.

Another program, while not medical-related, is HCA Houston Healthcare Clear Lake’s Raising a Reader program, which looks to improve literacy early on in children’s lives. The program between the hospital system and the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation was announced in November, according to a news release from the hospital’s website.
