THE WOODLANDS, TX – The Howard Hughes Corporation® (NYSE: HHC) announced today that Memorial Hermann Medical Group has signed a 20,000-square-foot, build-to-suit lease for a new Memorial Hermann Primary Care Clinic to be developed by HHC in the Research Forest area of Shenandoah. Construction is also beginning on the new Creekside Park® Medical Plaza within Creekside Park Village Center in The Woodlands®, further enhancing the quality healthcare that has helped make the 28,500-acre master planned community located north of Houston one of the most sought-after communities in the U.S.
Memorial Hermann Primary Clinic will be situated on 3.62 acres at 1890 Research Forest Drive in Shenandoah. In addition to primary care, services at the clinic will include endocrinology, sports medicine, virtual medicine and lab services.
“We welcome the Memorial Hermann Primary Care Clinic to Shenandoah. Localized clinics have become an important healthcare 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,” said Ritch Wheeler, Mayor of Shenandoah. “We look forward to their continued success as they provide quality healthcare to the area and for the positive economic impact that this clinic will create.”
Memorial Hermann Primary Care Clinic will anchor the next future phase of development of an additional 5.39 acres of retail, with convenient access along the major thoroughfare of Research Forest in close proximity to I-45. Construction will begin later this year.
“The Woodlands Hospital, now Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center, was the original hospital care site to open in 1985 in The Woodlands, and we are proud of how it has evolved into the dynamic medical center system it is today,” said Jim Carman, President – Houston Region for The Howard Hughes Corporation. “We appreciate our collaboration with Memorial Hermann Medical Group as we design a new primary care clinic that will enhance the strength of the world-class healthcare and the many health and wellness initiatives that we offer our community.”
Also, soon to be developed is the Creekside Park Medical Plaza office building, a two-story, 33,745-square foot Class A medical office building. Anticipated tenants include those that offer services such as multi-specialty, orthopedics, pediatrics, imaging, ophthalmology, oncology and dentistry. In keeping with the style of Creekside Park Village Center, the medical office building will feature Craftsman-style architecture.
Carman continued, “The new Creekside Park Medical Plaza will be a great addition to the Village of Creekside Park. This will bring an array of quality healthcare services conveniently located to those who live and work in Creekside Park.”
The Woodlands is home to a renowned regional medical hub that includes five of the top medical providers, known in Houston as well as internationally. Offering quality healthcare, The Woodlands offers unmatched care at Memorial Herman The Woodlands Medical Center, Houston Methodist – The Woodlands Hospital, St. Luke’s Health – The Woodlands and Lakeside Hospitals, Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands and cancer care at MD Anderson The Woodlands along with specializations and clinical programs throughout the area.
Healthcare is the leading business sector in The Woodlands, one that, along with the second leading sector of education, has always supported employment and the overall success of the community.
Gil Staley, Chief Executive Officer for The Woodlands Area Economic Development Partnership, added, “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, healthcare and education, are number one and number two.”
“Healthcare 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 healthcare 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. The Woodlands’ highly-skilled workforce enables the medical industry to thrive and is a key reason why we are seeing such interest from corporations in the medical arena, from healthcare leaders like Memorial Hermann to the burgeoning life sciences sector which is seeing growing demand within the real estate industry.”
