MISSOURI CITY, SUGAR LAND - The implementation of Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital's $131 million expansion plan has begun with the construction of a new emergency center along Hwy. 6 in Missouri City. The $8 million facility is expected to open in July 2014 at 8200 Hwy. 6 next to Aldi Food Market and will feature ten treatment rooms.

The project makes up the first phase of the hospital's overall expansion, said Chris Siebenaler, CEO of Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital.

Phase two of the expansion will include renovating and relocating services, such as orthopedics, the heart center and sports medicine and therapy, to the hospital's main campus at Hwy. 59 and Sweetwater Blvd. The expansion will also include a new patient tower due to open on the campus in early 2016.

The ongoing hospital expansion is expected to bring 104 additional beds and a new cardiac lab, along with about 350 new employees, by 2016. In the past five years, the Methodist system has undergone about $300 million in expansions, adding close to 1,500 jobs.
