Kelsey-Seybold officials have announced plans to expand the Fort Bend Medical and Diagnostic Center, renovating the existing building and adding a 135,000-square-foot building. The renovation and new construction will expand existing specialty care services as well as add an ambulatory surgery center and a cancer center, clinic officials announced Aug. 22.

The expansion of the clinic located at 11555 University Blvd., Sugar Land, once completed in winter 2023, will be renamed Kelsey-Seybold Clinic—Fort Bend Campus, according to the announcement.

“We are excited to expand our Fort Bend location, which will provide even greater access to care for patients in the vibrant and growing communities of Fort Bend,” said Dr. Tony Lin, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic chair and CEO in the announcement. “The additional surgical care, diagnostic capabilities and cancer services alongside greater specialty care will be a game changer for the community, making it easier than ever for individuals and families here to get the care and services they need close to home.”

The new surgery center will look to expand access to surgical care in Fort Bend County with four operating rooms, three endoscopy suites and one procedure room to support interventional pain management and interventional radiology services, according to the announcement. The surgery center will also have capacity for 24-hour patient observation. Meanwhile, the new cancer center will offer diagnostic and treatment options, infusion therapy, and radiation oncology.

The two structures will connect through a first-floor interior walkway, according to the announcement. When combined, the facility will offer 200,000 square feet, space for up to 75 providers in a variety of specialties. A new parking garage will also be built directly behind the new addition.
