Officials with Houston Methodist have announced the purchase of 106 acres along Hwy. 290 and plans to build its ninth hospital in the Cypress area. The property, located between Barker Cypress and Skinner roads, was formerly occupied by Sysco Corp.

The new campus will be modeled after the comprehensive Houston Methodist West and Houston Methodist The Woodlands facilities, and according to a press release, will ultimately have 400 beds, multiple medical office buildings and room for future growth.

“We look forward to bringing our promise of leading medicine by adding a hospital to a rapidly growing area, and we understand the importance of offering comprehensive services in areas such as cancer, heart, neurosciences, woman’s services, orthopedics and sports medicine,” said Marc Boom, Houston Methodist president and CEO, in a statement. “The population of this area is predicted to grow almost 9% over the next five years, and we are committed to providing the highest quality care, like we have for more than 100 years.”

The new hospital could open as early as 2024 and ultimately employ more than 500 people, according to the press release. Officials said outpatient clinics and medical staff offices are slated to open first.

“Houston Methodist is excited to participate in the economic development of the growing Cypress and North Houston community with medical and hospital staff job growth,” Boom said. “We are committed to sharing our vision of unparalleled health care with the Cypress community.”


Houston Methodist already has two clinics in the Cypress area—one at the Boardwalk at Towne Lake and another at Skinner Road and Hwy. 290. The nearest Houston Methodist hospital is located off Hwy. 249 in the Willowbrook area. www.houstonmethodist.org
