Kelsey-Seybold Clinic in Sugar Land has opened its expanded and renovated Fort Bend Medical and Diagnostic Center, officially renamed the Fort Bend Campus.

The clinic now has the capacity to add more than 35 providers, and gives patients expanded access to comprehensive adult and pediatric primary and specialty care, as well as orthopedic sports medicine, general surgery and pain management—according to an April 15 news release from the health care system.

The details

Renovations to the existing building and the addition of a second,135,000-square-foot building expanded the medical center's specialty care services, added a cancer center, created a shelled space for a future ambulatory center and increased space to now accommodate 75 providers, per the release.

The Fort Bend Campus also added more laboratory and diagnostic imaging services, including two MRI machines, one new CT machine with space for another, 3D mammography, ultrasound, X-ray and nuclear medicine imaging.

The two buildings are connected through a first-floor interior walkway, with a new parking garage situated behind the new building.

Diving in deeper

The new cancer center offers services including diagnostic and treatment options, infusion therapy and radiation oncology.

The release also states the future ambulatory center will become operational in 2025—expanding access to surgical care in Fort Bend County and southwest Harris County with:
  • Four operating rooms
  • Three endoscopy suites
  • One procedure room
Quote of note

Kenneth Janis, chief operating officer for Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, said in a statement the expansion brings "top-tier specialty care to the doorstep of Fort Bend and Harris County residents and professionals" and shortens the distance between patients and essential health care services.

"With this new facility, we're limiting the need for trips to the [Texas Medical Center], ensuring that patients in this vibrant community have swift access to the care they deserve," Janis said in the release. "We are thrilled that Fort Bend Campus is opening its doors to serve the community with the compassionate excellence our team is known for."

What else?

The opening of the Fort Bend Campus comes after recently opened Stafford and Eldridge clinics, as well as the pending opening of a clinic in Rosenberg. These clinics, in addition to the already established center in Sienna, are part of a regional strategy to make care more convenient and accessible to people where live and work, according to the release.
