Construction on the Houston Methodist hospital system’s largest outpatient care center is slated to begin in the second quarter of 2025 in Spring, hospital leaders estimate.

The big picture

The Houston Methodist mega care center—expected to be completed at the end of 2026—will offer comprehensive care with a “heavy presence” of orthopedics and sports medicine, said Nathan Jacobs, the vice president of operations at Houston Methodist Physician Organization. To be located at the northeast corner of the Kuykendahl Road and Grand Parkway intersection, the center is expected to serve between 600-700 patients per day across all services.

“One of our major initiatives is to provide better access to care for the community, putting these outpatient centers out in the community, so that there's more Houston Methodist facilities nearer to the consumer,” said Keith Barber, CEO at Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital.

Sorting out details

The center is expected to be four or five stories and about 120,000 square feet. Jacobs said the center will likely feature:
  • Around 70 exam rooms receiving 400-450 patient appointments per day
  • Physical therapy and occupational therapy services
  • MRI and CT scan services
  • Primary care and multispecialty physician spaces
  • An ambulatory surgery center
  • A lab
The Kuykendahl center is one of two mega care centers being planned by Houston Methodist hospital leaders, Barber said. More details on the centers will be announced as the project is developed.
