The new MD Anderson Cancer Center outpatient facility in Katy will house specialized oncology services.

MD Anderson Cancer Center will soon have a new building in the Katy area to better serve the growing population in West Houston.

This summer MD Anderson will open a 260,000-square-foot outpatient center at 13900 I-10, Houston, between Eldridge Road and Park & Ride Drive, Associate Director of Public Relations Julie Penne said in an email. MD Anderson expects the new facility will have about 150 full-time employees.

MD Anderson has an existing Katy-area facility on the campus of Houston Methodist Continuing Care Hospital, formerly known as Houston Methodist St. Catherine Hospital, at 19770 Kingsland Blvd., Houston. This 33,000-square-foot leased location offers medical, radiation and surgical oncology services and a range of other supportive care services, Penne said.

When the new building is complete, MD Anderson will relocate the teams, services and staff at Kingsland Boulevard to the new facility, Penne said. The I-10 building will also offer endoscopy and cardiopulmonary services and a post-anesthesia care unit.

Eventually, MD Anderson Diagnostic Imaging West Houston at 15021 I-10, Houston, will also relocate to the new facility in 2020, Penne said The diagnostic center offers MRIs, CT scans, X-rays, laboratory services and women’s screening services.

MD Anderson first announced it would build the new West Houston outpatient clinic about three years ago, according to a 2015 release. The project broke ground in September 2016, Penne said and added that the growing population in the West Houston area prompted the hospital to consider constructing a new facility in the region.

“West Houston is one of the region’s fastest growing areas, and MD Anderson is committed to providing specialized teams and services in a convenient location, close to where our patients live and work,” she wrote in an email.
