The Northeast Hospital Authority Board donated $10 million in October 2019 to the Memorial Hermann Foundation to expand the Humble hospital’s services, and construction began in June 2020.
“From a medical perspective, the focus [of the expansion] is addressing the medical needs and demand of the communities we serve,” said Nikki Roux, vice president of operations at Memorial Hermann Northeast, in an email. “The end goal is always great outcomes and great experiences for people through quality, patient-centered care.”
The hospital has new delivery rooms and a satellite nursing area, and the postpartum unit was relocated within the South Tower, Roux said. Renovations are ongoing in the waiting and operating rooms, and new office space will be created for women’s services physicians.
