Medical office space is coming to several areas on the west side of The Woodlands with the development of Creekside Park Medical Plaza and a new Kelsey-Seybold clinic.

The two-story, 32,600-square-foot Creekside Park Medical Plaza at 26424 Strake Drive in Creekside Park was built by Howard Hughes and sold as a shell to Houston Methodist, which is working on interior construction, said David Bernard, CEO of Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital. It will include space for up to 10 providers, including primary care, orthopedic services, and likely both physical therapy and occupational therapy, he said.

"Houston Methodist is always looking for opportunities to expand and better serve our patients," Bernard said. "When we were made aware of the Creekside opportunity, we were excited to partner with those involved to bring Houston Methodist care and services to the area."

The clinic will open in 2025, he said. One area of focus as it completes its internal construction is efficiency in delivering service to patients.

“We are building the clinic of the future, with a focus on less time in common waiting areas and an emphasis on efficiency for our patients,” Bernard said.

Outside of the Houston Methodist facility, work was wrapping this spring on facilities within the 48,250-square-foot, three-story Creekside Medical Office Building, also located on Kuykendahl Road. The building saw a Genesis Medical Group Urgent Care open on June 3.

Also of note

In addition to the new medical office space, Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital also announced the launch of its graduate medical education residency program beginning July 1.

“Our inaugural cohort will include a class of six internal medicine residents, and we look forward to expanding our education program for all learners,” Bernard said. “We are proud to train and develop the next generation of health care providers in our country and to be leading medicine in Montgomery County.”

What else?

The Kelsey-Seybold Clinic-West Woodlands, which will be located at 33003 Egypt Lane, The Woodlands, is also slated to open in the coming months, serving villages such as Alden Bridge, Sterling Ridge and Indian Springs.

That facility will also consist of two stories and 33,000 square feet, and it will have space for up to 15 providers in areas such as dermatology, cardiology, optometry and orthopedics, Kelsey-Seybold officials said.

It will also include on-site diagnostic services, such as X-rays, mammography, ultrasound and cardiac stress testing.

The Kelsey-Seybold facility is projected to open in December.
