Memorial Hermann Medical Group signed a 20,000-square-foot, build-to-suit lease for a Memorial Hermann Primary Care Clinic to be developed in Shenandoah, according to a news release from Howard Hughes Corporation.

In addition, the release stated construction is beginning on the new Creekside Park Medical Plaza within Creekside Park Village Center.

Memorial Hermann Primary Clinic

Memorial Hermann Primary Clinic is expected to sit on about 3 acres of land at 1890 Research Forest Drive, Shenandoah. In addition to primary care, services at the clinic will include endocrinology, sports medicine, virtual medicine and lab services, according to the release.

“We welcome the Memorial Hermann Primary Care Clinic to Shenandoah," Shenandoah Mayor Ritch Wheeler said in the release. "Localized clinics have become an important health care provider, and this is just another great Memorial Hermann Hospital facility that will reside in the city. We have worked with them on their main campus expansion over the years, and their new clinic will be an added convenience for our residents. We look forward to their continued success as they provide quality health care to the area and for the positive economic impact that this clinic will create.”

According to Howard Hughes, the Memorial Hermann Primary Care Clinic will anchor the next planned phase of retail development along the major thoroughfare of Research Forest near I-45. Construction will begin later this year.

Creekside Park Medical Plaza

Howard Hughes will soon develop the Creekside Park Medical Plaza office building, a two-story, 33,745-square-foot Class A medical office building, according to the release. Anticipated tenants include services such as multispecialty, orthopedics, pediatrics, imaging, ophthalmology, oncology and dentistry.

“When a community is growing, which The Woodlands continues to do, you hope that the two sectors that recognize and address the needs of the population—health care and education—are No. 1 and No. 2," said
Gil Staley, chief executive officer for The Woodlands Area Economic Development Partnership, in the release. "Health care in The Woodlands is an amazing story—not only do we offer a level of care that competes with today’s leading urban medical centers, but the health care sector has always added jobs to this community and has never experienced a downturn in job creation year-over-year—which is a remarkable statistic."
