New, larger medical facility brings primary and added specialty care under one roof
HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- To meet the growing medical needs of Houston’s downtown community, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, a downtown health resource for more than 35 years, today opened a new, more expansive facility at The Shops at Houston Center.
The new Houston Center clinic will offer primary care and specialty care services including Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dermatology, Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, Podiatry and Pulmonary Medicine. The facility will occupy 23,000 square feet, one of the largest medical leases in downtown.
In addition to primary and specialty care, this location will also provide routine diagnostic and ancillary services, including laboratory, X-ray, digital mammography, bone density screening and ultrasound services. Other services include allergy injections, pre-employment physicals, foreign travel exams, foreign travel immunizations, drug screenings, asbestos exams, hazardous materials/hazardous waste exams, department of Transportation exams and United Kingdom Offshore Oil Association (UKOOA) physicals.
Patients also have the added convenience of filling prescriptions at the new Kelsey Pharmacy - Downtown, which opened in January, located only steps away, across from the new clinic.
“The downtown area is not only home to more than 3000 employers, but also a growing number of residents. It is also accessible by foot for the 135,000 people who work in and around the downtown tunnel system. People living and working downtown are looking for convenience in everything they do, including medical care,” said Kenneth Kennedy, M.D., Managing Physician, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic Downtown. “The expansion and relocation of Kelsey-Seybold’s downtown clinic and addition of the new pharmacy will meet the needs of the community while offering patients the same level of quality care they have come to know and expect from Kelsey-Seybold.”
The new downtown clinic is located at 1200 McKinney, Suite 473, half a block from the original clinic location at 1 Houston Center, which opened in 1975. Designed by architecture firm Page Sutherland Page, LLP and constructed by Linbeck, the new downtown clinic is one of 20 Kelsey-Seybold Clinics located in and around the Greater Houston Area.
"We are thrilled to partner with Kelsey-Seybold Clinic on the build out of their new clinic at The Shops at Houston Center," said Jim Wilson, managing director of asset management at Crescent Real Estate. "The downtown community will truly benefit by having direct access to exceptional dining, shopping and high-quality medical services, all within one location.”
To celebrate the opening, a series of educational opportunities and a free public health fair will be hosted by Kelsey-Seybold April 12-14 at The Shops at Houston Center.
