​​FORT BEND COUNTY - An expanded and renovated hospital unveiled its new digs in fast-growing Fort Bend County.

Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital opened its new facilities Sept. 7, about one month ahead of schedule, according to Community Impact.

The approximately $93 million project includes a six-story, 155,000-sf patient tower and increases the hospital's bed count to 147.

Construction on the hospital, at 17500 W. Grand Pkwy S., started in May 2014.

Population growth spurred the project, hospital CEO Greg Haralson told the Houston Business Journal in 2013 when the project was announced.

Fort Bend is one of the fastest-growing counties in America, according to recent U.S. Census data

It ranked tops among counties with populations of 250,000 or more in 2015, with its population increasing 4.3 percent between 2014 and 2015 to 716,087.
