​​​​THE WOODLANDS - The community expects to bring in more physicians and medical staff as it becomes a bigger hub for health care in the shadow of a nationwide doctor shortage. 

A study by the Association of American Medical Colleges predicts that by the year 2025, the United States will face a shortage of between 61,700 to 94,700 primary and specialty care physicians.

However, hospital administrators in The Woodlands are not expecting a physician shortage anytime soon even as two new hospitals—Texas Children’s and Houston Methodist The Woodlands hospitals—open their doors in the next year along with an expansion at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital. 

Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital is expanding to a 350-bed facility and will then have 900 total physicians by next year.

Michelle Riley-Brown, president of Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands, said she believes the new location will attract even more physicians to the area.
