Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women, part of the Texas Children's Hospital network, opened a Clear Lake community clinic in mid-November, according to a Nov. 17 media release.

The maternal-fetal medicine clinic at 920 Clear Lake City Blvd. will bring women's health care closer to Bay Area residents, offering ultrasounds, antenatal testing, genetics counseling and diabetes management, per the release. Located next to Texas Children’s Specialty Care Clear Lake, the facility is the first at Texas Children’s to offer these services in the Clear Lake area, per the release.


Services are provided by doctors Karin Fox and Sara Jacobs, according to the clinic website. Jacobs looks forward to giving back to the community where she grew up, she said in the release.

“I always wanted to be a doctor in the community, so being able to see patients in the community that shaped me is very meaningful to me,” Jacobs said. “It’s incredible that Texas Children’s is making it possible for mothers and their babies who live outside the Texas Medical Center to receive such high-level care so close to home.”
