A new 22,000-square-foot Kelsey-Seybold clinic will open in November at 1900 N. Loop West, Houston, near the Loop 610 and Hwy. 290 intersection, officials announced May 25.

It will be the sixth new clinic by Kelsey-Seybold slated to open this year, joining other new clinics planned at Memorial City and River Oaks.

"Providing convenient services in more established residential neighborhoods is a priority for our growth strategy,” said Nicholas Ro, Kelsey-Seybold's chief legal and strategic planning officer. “Our new Greater Heights clinic, conveniently located near the intersection of two major thoroughfares, will close the gap for nearly 150,000 potential patients who previously had to travel outside their community to access a Kelsey-Seybold location.”

The clinic will offer comprehensive primary care for adults and is positioned to serve residents in Greater Heights, Garden Oaks and Oak Forest, among other communities, according to a May 25 press release. It will have room for up to 10 health care providers.

The clinic will include an on-site pharmacy, laboratory, X-ray and diagnostic testing services. Patients will also have access to Kelsey-Seybold's referral network, which can connect them to specialists at other clinics in River Oaks, Tanglewood, Memorial City and, eventually, at a 125,000-square-foot clinic that will open in the Memorial Villages in 2022, according to the release.



The new clinic will occupy the entire fourth floor of a building that also houses several other medical tenants, including Blue Fish Pediatrics, Fresenius Kidney Care and White Oak Medical Associates. The clinic was designed by Powers Brown Architecture, and Gamma Construction has been selected as the general contractor.
